3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2014

e went there on both days to see if we could find some chilli peppers. We couldn't! The Open Air Market is mostly fruit and vegetables and clothing.

“All the fruit you could want!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2014

This market is close to the funicular that takes you up to the castle. There is so much beautiful fruit to choose from for only a few Euros. Closed on Sundays, though, which we found out when we tried to go back for more berries! It opens quite early in the morning and shuts down around 4 in the afternoon, but some vendors seem to stick around a bit longer.

“our favourite place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2014

Although quite a small market in comparison,and situated close to everything including the river and boat trips pick up point,we both found this market to be really sweet.We bought our souvenirs from here as well as some fruit.They sell souvenirs,flowers,honey and olive oils which are a big selling point in this country.A very busy market surrounded by places to sit and have a drink too.

“Doesn't start up until noon”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2014

Very cool old marketplace full of stalls for locals and tourists alike (honey is a great souvenir buy here). But the real gem for me was the fresh milk and local farm vending machines. Probably the most delicious glass of fresh raw milk I have ever had (for 10 euro cents!) and a bottle of goat milk yogurt for 2 euros.

“The open market”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2014

Not many people really notice the monument dedicated to Valentin Vodnik, a priest and a poet in the beginning of the 19th Century. Otherwise the square is an open market for the center of Ljubljana and it is interesting to visit. On one side, by the river Ljubljanica, there are also different market stands and covered areas, the fish market, the meat market and also the cheese section. Here you get the feeling that time has slowed down a bit, well until you get to the clothes section.
