Catherine Sunter: Catherine, the hawkers pay an annual permit and they are allotted a place of 3mx3m in the square everyone must use the space provided by his permit.(Some pay double permits for a double space) this way everyone his his own particular site within the square. if it was not like this then the law of the jungle would prevail and they would fight every day!
Square is crowded today - Sunday 11th Feb - stalls look busy and also the cafe's outside tables are all occupied......oh to be like this in UK without the usual coffee multiples.
Does anyone know if this is a first come basis where you just put your stall up wherever you want or do they have the same spots every day. They work incredibly hard as they are there from 4am onwards to set up the stalls day in day out.
10dec17--A Thank You to our host, Mama's Home - Suite & Nest, for sponsoring this 'live cam' view on Campo de' Fiori, market during the day and nightlife in the evening, charming.
Five to six in the morning and someone is belting seven bells out of something. I wonder if any people in the surrounding appartments ever complain about the noise every morning from about 4.30ish. I would never get any sleep.
The market begins early morning and finishes by noon or so. Fruits, vegetables, spices, liqueurs, etc.
I wonder why there is no market!?
I wonder why there is no market, you might come the Christmas market? 2014/11/14 08:04
At 7:30 pm, Rome time, I watched as a young couple were delighted to pet a large, friendly, white dog (maybe a Great Pyrenees) who, along with his elderly lady handler, was gently receptive to their kind and loving attention. :-)
Great to watch this square in time lapse as the market stalls are put up ...then taken down at end of business leaving the cafes and restaurants .
Gosh how time consuming putting these stalls up every day and look at all the rubbish on the floor.
I was up very early this morning (4.15) and then watched everyone in this square setting up their stalls, it was amazing. They are so hard working. All those umbrellas.
What happened to the sound on the Campo webcam?
Sometimes the Trevi Fountain cam goes down for prolonged periods - when it's up and going, it's more than worth it!
