Apart from the daily markets there are also a number of special sunday markets in Rome. Some of these, like the famous Porta Portese flea market in Trastevere, sell everything imaginable, others specialize.
Sunday markets Rome
These are markets that are held almost every Sunday in Rome. Note that, during the summer months, when the Romans are all at the beach or on a holiday elsewhere, these markets are often closed.
