The square has continually hosted a colorful historical open-air fruit and vegetable market, every day since the fifteenth century. As the name Campo de’ Fiori suggests, the site was previously a field of flowers among noble palaces and medieval streets. When the nearby Piazza Navona was chosen to host the main market of Rome in 1478, the surrounding area was inundated by a huge flow of merchants and commodities. Campo de’ Fiori became an important commercial center for handcrafted products, and subsequently many craftsmen decided to set up their workshops in the narrow streets around the square. Because of these shops, the streets today still bear these descriptive names, such as Via dei Giubbonari (Tailors’ street) and Via dei Cappellari (Hat Makers’ street).
