Right in the center of Zagreb, a few steps away from the cathedral and the main square – Trg bana Josipa Jelačića, you will find the local farmers’ market – Dolac.

This is the best place to buy fresh food from the local producers and even if the prices might be a bit higher it is still worth paying extra for the quality of the products.

The Dolac market has been part of the city’s scenery since 1930 and over the year it has become the major trading point in Zagreb where farmers from the surrounding villages came to sell their products.

In the upper, open-air part you can find fruits, vegetables or flowers and in the lower one, there’s meat, fish, or dairy products.

The central square of the Old City has this wonderful market. With the mass of red umbrellas, it calls to the visitor. Just walking through puts a smile on your face. We saw lots of fruits, nuts, mushrooms, and other produce. There are vendors that sell crafts and local home made items. We wandered through and picked up enough goodies at reasonable prices to have lunch at the cathedral fountain just around the corner. By the way, they also have very nice restrooms. Surrounding the market are some local bakeries where you can get a drink or roll to round off your lunch. A market is always the best way to know local people.

Right in the heart of Zagreb, roam through this colorful farmer's market, just up a set of stairs from Ban Jelacic Square, is a feast for the senses. Dolac is often referred to as "the belly of Zagreb" by locals. Under the iconic red umbrellas are stalls with fresh fruits and vegetables. The vendors are very warm, always wanting to try the fruits. I love the sweet Mandarin Oranges and pomegranates. Head downstairs to the covered market where you'll find butcher stalls, cheeses and dried fruits.

Love going to the local farmers market when traveling. This is always a great way to learn the the culture a d see how the local live. This is must place to visit.

The market is located a few minutes walk from where we stayed, even tough we didn’t buy anything it is worth visiting. It is colourful and the locals say it is the best place to buy fresh food from local producers. A few steps away you have the amazing cathedral and the main square.

Very interesting to see outside stalls selling fresh local produce in an old fashioned type of way that has continued for many years. Alongside are stalls selling local products and goods. Underneath is another market selling cheese, fish and meat.
This market is a short walk from the main square on one side and the cathedral on the other side. It is an easy walk from this market to many of the surrounding tourist spots

Lovely open market with so many fresh fruits, vegetables and fish, meat. home made cheese, jams etc. produced by the local farmers. We actually bought some to try and indeed they were good. A very beautiful sight with all the lovely colors and fragrances. You can cover the market and walk down towards the other side where you find the pretty souvenir stores. The place and items were very flavorful. Would recommend to visit this place if you wish to try some fresh fruits. (Visited in Sep 2019)

Come here for a real experience of open air local market. From the main city square look for the stairs and red umbrellas. You'll pass through flowers first, then many fruit/vegetable stands under the umbrellas. In early summer (June) the berries are really tasty.

I love European markets and Dolac is one of the best. There are both indoor and outdoor spots, selling everything from grocery items (fruit, dairy, meat, fish) to prepared foods to souvenirs. And my favorite--the "bring your own bottle and we'll fill it with wine" vendor.

The best way to start the day in Zagreb? Head to Dolac, pick up some fresh fruit and some sweet or savory pastries, then head to Tkalciceva and sit down at one of the many outdoor cafes to enjoy a coffee with your breakfast purchases.

It's located in between the main square (Trg Bana Jelacica) and the Kaptol area so you are likely to come across it while walking around the city. But the market is pretty well finished by early afternoon so it's worth seeking out to make it one of your earlier stops in the day.

This is close to Jelačić Square and the Cathedral. If you're close-by then it's worth a walk-through, but I really don't get the big deal.

They have mainly fruit & vege (below the market is more meat & dairy) and some souvenirs for sale. Seriously the fruit & vege vendors can be really suspicious - not letting you choose the fruit you want - they choose and bag it for you (meaning bad fruit on the bottom covered with good stuff on the top). Many vendors don't even use digital scales! I rarely buy produce there anymore because I was tired of getting over-ripe produce that they sneaked into my bag.

Some vendors do let you choose the produce yourself and also have digital scales - go with them - they deserve the business.

Lastly, most stall holders want you to buy at least 1 kg of anything, so be prepared for rude comments/dirty looks if you just want to buy a couple of apples or whatever. There's a few nice ones that don't seem to mind, but most do mind.

The majority of the vendors could use some customer service training IMHO and the inspectors should pay more attention to the practices at this market. Mainly gets attention due to it's location rather than anything good it has to offer. No-where near as beautiful as other european marketplaces but not ugly either. Be sure to get there by 12/1pm as they close in the afternoon.

You can find fresh fruits and vegetable on the upper ground level of Dolac Market. As well, there is cheese, souvenirs and restaurants around. In the lower ground level, you can find meat, ham, bread, cheese and more.

The food is fresh and at reasonable price. It's open even on Sundays. Go and explore the city starting from the market.
