Tomorrow, and every other Sunday, organic and biodynamic producers from Lazio, Abruzzo and Tuscany gather on the edge of Vicolo della Moretta in central Rome. The market, which runs from 8am-5pm, was the city’s first farmers’ market and is organized by Di Sana Pianta e Agropelagus. It features the sale of produce, breads, honey, oil and cheeses, as well as ceramics and wood work.

Look for Giovanni Bernabei, who specializes in potatoes, wild chard and borage, Marco De Angelis, a biodynamic farmer who grows produce off the Via del Casaletto, and Paola and Walter of Terra d’Arcoiris, who sell Goldrush apples and juices. Azienda Agricola Cetrone Piero sells fantastic cheeses.
