Campo de' Fiori market 菜市場, Rome Italy 2013 羅馬意大利自由行


On the last day at Roma / Rome, since we still have time in the morning, we visit another market - Campo de Fiori . I remembered Terri mentioned about this market in her Italy travel post but she missed to make a trip here. So I went there on behalf of her ^_^. Anyway, this market is smaller than Mercato Centrale at Firenze/Florence, and it is located at a open space

This market remind me of our pasar pagi (morning market) here, they are selling almost the same things from vegetables, fruits, kitchenware, flowers, shirts, meat and etc..

The tomatoes with ribs are kind of an old-fashioned kind, that are supposed to be very tasty. The Italians say, "Brutto ma buono!" Than means ugly, but good! I wish we had that idea in the US. Here, everything looks gorgeous, but tastes like cardboard.

The zucchini flower is left on for sale to show how fresh the zucchini is, and just because they look amazing. They're usually sold this way in Italy. I guess most of the flowers are just trimmed off and not used. It is common to see http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/food/views/fried-zucchini-blossoms-366402 on menus, though. I also see them often as a pizza topping (sauteed, I think).
