Modern food commerce in full swing
The "new" Testaccio Market opened in a modern building next to the Ex-Mattatoio (former slaughterhouse) in the summer of 2012. The space was much larger than the original market area, which meant there was plenty of room to grow new businesses, especially "fast food" stalls. While other cities may have thriving dining cultures in their markets, Rome never had such a thing before stalls like Mordi e Vai and Dess'art opened in Testaccio. Now locals and visitors alike can graze on delicious seasonal snacks and even have a hearty meal of tasty Roman classics.
