Mercato Centrale Roma (direct translation: Central Market Rome) located in Termini Station, Rome’s Central Station.
Termini, you could say, had seen better days and I am not going to say the area is perfect. There are still a number of issues that still need to be solved.
However, over the past couple of years, there have been some big changes to Termini.
We are seeing new stores, a cleaner environment, and even ticket checks before boarding (only the Freccia – high speed – trains). However, something else is happening.
Mercato Centrale Roma, is happening.
Rome’s Central Market is a great way for all the millions of travellers, to get that last taste of ‘the Eternal City’, before embarking on your next destination (where new flavours will await).
There are plenty of quality options from some of the most famous local businesses, that have become a staple to Roman life. In short, Mercato Centrale Roma is just a good way to say ‘arrivederci Roma’.
I provide you an A-la-Carte (menù) view of Mercato Centrale Roma, starting from your Antipasto, through to your Dolci!
Tagliere di Salumi e Formaggi
Il Pane e i dolci
Choose from a variety of Pasta dishes or just pick up some fresh pasta, once you get to your Air BnB in Florence or Orvieto!
If you have not had enough Pasta or want something a little different, head to the Tartufo (Truffle) area!
You just cannot leave Pizza off the menù when in Italy. Local trip – believe it or not, even Pizza’s change from region to region!
Secondi e Contorni
Fish and meat are also available here! So there really is something everyone in here – yes even a small Sushi corner and even Vegan options.
Pair your fish or meat dish with a delicious ‘contorno’ or side dish or just make yourself a vegetarian dish at the Carciofi and Funghi corner (artichokes and mushrooms).
Well this is part of the menu you have all been looking for, I am sure! Enjoy delicious baked sweets, gelato or artiginal chocolate for dessert.
There is plenty to eat and drink at Termini’s Mercato Centrale and it is worth the stop! So next time you go to Termini, ignore the ugly and enjoy a nice meal before your next big trip!
