Roman Pilgrimage: Campo de' Fiori



MfitaliathOutdoor food market mecca Campo de' Fiori is stop #2 on our pilgrimage to Roman culinary shrines. Under the canopies, bustling with Roman shoppers and tourists alike, were the most vibrant figs, artichokes, and peaches -- which, of course, look all the more mouthwatering when you glance at these photos months after summer has passed and we are now on the cusp of winter.

Truth be told, amid the fresh and abundant produce, you will find some schlocky housewares sold (we bought a cheap duffle bag), and a used car salesman of a spice seller (I walked up to snap a photo and before I knew it, he had sold me a bag of dried herbs). But, they can't mar the rich display of fruits and vegetables sold in this historic gastronomical destination.

Perhaps there's an all-seafood version out there.
