Weather not very nice this morning, for setting out stalls for market.
today Saturday 17/3 the market is exceptionally busy people start to buy sweets for Easter. God Luck to all the hawkers in the square!
Yes, it's Mama's Home Suite & Nest... I crossed Mama with the Italian word for Grandmother (Nonna). Half my heritage is Italian. :-)
2nd of March, 2:36 pm, and--presumably after a profitable day--some of the venders are already dismantling. It's been a few years since I've been to Rome, but since September of 2014, these marvelous cams have made for a pleasant substitution. I have friends in Rome... I shall return. :-) Thank You, Momma's Home (Suite & Nest) for sponsoring this camera!
Most Welcome Sam!
Thank You Ron. I do appreciate the information and your effort.
Hi Sam, I asked Mama's Home about the time which hawkers are permitted to man their stands and was told that the police permit everyone holds states that the stalls can remain in the square until sunset, However all hawkers usually conduct their sales in the morning and start to dismantle the stands after midday! Hope this information helps!
No market in the Campo today. Snow chased everyone away. 26 February, 2018.
Thanks Ron for that information. No Hawkers today they will be having a well earned rest I think thanks to the snow.
Gorgeous snow falling on the Campo. A few brave souls have ventured out to take photos. Monday, 26 February, 2018.
23feb18-- Thank You Ron. Super information. As I viewed today there was a steady rain which does not deter vendors or shoppers. Seemed to me nearly every space was occupied. (3 x 3) meter. They have the cycle down pat, set-up / sales / tear-down / clean-up / meals / strolling , and a rest for the market square. Ron do you know is there time set for hawkers must leave? 4 pm maybe 5pm ? Thanks in advance.
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.
