Mercato di Campo dè Fiori
Campo de Fiori really starts to wake up from 8.30am. In December, artichokes are in season and you'll find many stalls selling it. It's a medium-sized outdoor market that is slowly being taken over my souvenir vendors. Still, it feels pretty local in most part and there are a wide selection of local produce one can get from here. Worth visiting if only for a short glimpse of local life. Afterwards, adjourn to any nearby cafe for your compulsory croissant and expresso breakfast

The Neighborhood Market
Nothing beats having a local market- no matter how packed and photographed it can get. The charm of Campo de' Fiori is that it is local- nonni bring bambini for fruit and pizza, barmen hand deliver trays of espresso to the vendors. Whatever neighborhood you are in, always ask for the local market, whether outdoor or indoor.
