If you choose to visit the market make sure you do so on a Saturday, between 8 and 12 o'clock. This is because Saturday is the only day of the week when all stands are full and you get the real experience. Start at the Cathedral on Pogačarjev trg and visit the eco market. Than visit the underground market and finish with the main market. If you want to buy local produce choose the eco market or visit the costermongers that do not sell at the begining of the market.

During my research before the trip to Ljubljana, I did not come across this market until I was there. It was simply invigorating to come across such a splendid place in this city. The colors of different edible and non-edible products, the aroma of many fruits, vegetables, cheese, meat, spices, etc. was fantastic. The most important aspect of the market was the happy ambiance that vendors and customers conveyed. Some vendors displayed Ljubljana products while others displayed products from other countries such as Italy. One Italian lady was attracting customers nearby by occasionally announcing her products. This, by no means, disturbed the vibrant atmosphere of the market. In fact, it added more enthusiasm in vendors and customers equally. Before leaving this market, I was able to buy few items (spices and gifts). It was a fun and memorable experience in Ljubljana.

There is a fantastic market in the city of Ljublijana! We were so sad that we had already eaten our lunch at a nearby restaurant on the canal because the food vendors at the market were amazing! I would highly recommend skipping a restaurant for lunch, and heading here to try all kinds of local and regional great food for a cheap price!

A MUST SEE!!!

Truly central market offering fresh fruit and vegetables. There are so many kinds of fruit and vegetables. Enchanting smell of fruit makes you feel like tasting it all. Everything is fresh. Flower, fish, meat and cheese markets can be found in vicinity. Definitely worth seeing and tasting. You can also get something to eat from near food carts offering fish, hot-dogs and others. All nicely in the city center.

This is a lovely, busy market offering food, drink and the inevitable tourist stuff in a lovely location between the river and the castle hill.
