Mercato di Campagna Amica del Circo Massimo

Every Saturday and Sunday, Campagna Amica (a foundation that promotes local, sustainable agriculture and commerce) and Coldiretti (a publication with a similar scope) sponsor a farmer’s market next to the Circus Maximus. Producers come from all over Regione Lazio to sell their produce, meat, cheese, honey, and bread. Many also organize visits to their farms back home. Here is who to look for in the market, or even visit on their home turf (I’ve included websites for those who have one, otherwise I have listed a contact phone number):

Apicoltura Angelini Rita: Sells legumes and honeys, has a shop on Via A. Barbazza, 127 in Rome’s Boccea. Tel. 06.61660031.
