Shop Like a Roman {Mercato di Campagna Amica del Circo Massimo}

I really don't like crowds. Or general chaos. I know that does make living in Rome kind of a challenge right? I also don't really enjoy food shopping on the weekend. It feels a little too much like work when I should be playing somehow. The thing is I do love farmers markets. But, after a couple particularly unruly visits this past summer, I just stopped going. I found it so much calmer to shop from the back of a truck or an elegant butcher shop and buy my vegetables from my local fruttavendolo. In solitude. With no pushing. This past weekend my pal Elizabeth insisted she had a solution for me. 

Late in the afternoon we sped off in her Smart car to shop at the wonderful San Teodoro farmers market just around the corner from the Circo Massimo. While it was not quite the calm empty space I had envisioned it was certainly less chaotic the last time I had been. I filled up my reusable grocery bags with delicious things like kale, fresh milk, dried fava beans, duck eggs and enormous bunches of tulips. 

Now I probably won't have a chauffeur driven trip every time I want to go to the market. That's ok because of this new service I learned about called Il Passamano who will deliver farmers market products to your front door. 

And I don't have to go food shopping for the rest of the week.
