Market of Ponte Milvio
This open market got the name from the oldest bridge in Rome, Ponte Milvio, made famous by the "lovers' padlocks" featured into the recent Italian movie "Tre Metri sopra il Cielo" and many others.
The market of Ponte Milvio has an international flavor. It starts with colourful stands of halal meat, carrying on with Eastern vegetables and spices: you will find green platan as well as butternut pumpkin to be stuffed, the unobtainable Pakistani mango, and so on. A few steps away there is Mario, with his powdered spices and dill, tarragon, and coriander plants ready for your home's balcony.
If you are in for fresh fish, every Tuesday and Wednesday, Luciana sells a great swordfish, fantastic tuna to be eaten even raw and lots of 'paranza' - catch of the day – coming from the Latium coasts.
At Tommaso's you will always find regional products: thistles, broad beans, and Terracina's strawberries and, just in front of his stand there is another one selling products of a biological products of a small farm of the Roman countryside, at competitive farmer-to-consumer rates.
At Ponte Milvio you will also find an underground parking area, as well as a shopping gallery. These are recent addition to the historical market stands.
The market is open from Monday to Saturday.
