Piazza Testaccio,

The Mercato di Testaccio is a real deal old-school indoor Roman market where locals come to pick up le spezie (the shopping). The market opens early, so shoppers can come for cappuccino and a pastry before browsing around. At the center of the market, there are fruits, vegetables, meat, fish, cheese, and fresh-baked bread. Around the edges are stalls selling an assortment of goods, from books to bath products. Occasionally, lucky shoppers have even been able to snag some Italian leather shoes.
