    Tržnica: The market (Tržnica)

    by JLBG Updated Nov 11, 2005

    The first photo shows the block were stands the market (tržnica)

    The alley shown on the second photo leads to the fish market, on the far left and to the vegetables and fruit market, in three places. The first (and oldest) is in the far right, in front of the fish market. A second is immediately on the right. A third is in the rear, closer to the parking lot, under a booth. It seems that these extensions have been created one after the other to fulfill the needs of a growing population.

    The fish market: The fish market

    by JLBG Updated Nov 11, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The fish market is not very large and much smaller than in Pula. It has half a dozen fishmongers but you can find about anything you want : gilt-head sea bream (orata), atlantic mackerel (škusa), red mullet (barbun), sole (list), tunny (tunj), conger eel (ugor), sea-perch (branċin), mussels (dagnje), squids (lignji), shrimps (račiċi), langoustine (škampi) and others.

    The fruits and vegetables market: The fruits and vegetables market

    The oldest part of the market is inside the main building (first photo). It became too small for everybody ! Besides fruits and vegetables, there is a baker and a butcher. You can also find eggs, poultry, etc...

    Another vegetables and fruits market is next to the entrance and just covered by a roofing, but open on two sides (second photo). Besides the peasants that sell what they have grown, there is often a lady who has mushrooms. On the left side (not shown on the picture), you can bring your empty bottles and buy wine by the liter.

    A third part of the vegetables and fruits market has been added on the side of the parking lot. Garlic (third photo) and paprika (fourth photo) are on display !

    If you are interested in buying souvenirs from Pore?, there are plenty of shops that sell various items for the tourists. Sorry, I am not interested in this kind of stuff and I have taken only two photos, a general view of the window of one of these sops and a close-up on a fancy fish !

    Discount

    In front of the market (this picture is taken from the market pavement), is a discount store where you will find any grocery you can need at decent prices. Unless you plan to buy a heavy load, don't try to drive to the store : though it is very close when you walk, with a car, you have to make a large loop to arrive in front of the shop.

    lavenda lavenda lavenda!

    Lavender grows everywhere in Istria, and I really love the smell of it. All over the town of Porec you can hear people yelling "lavenda lavenda". they sell lavendar in small fabric bags as souvenirs. They recommend you put a small bag in your panties and they will always smell nice:-)

    We went into a local small store near the north tower, and the owners had home made wines of blackberry, and cherry, other liquors, gifts to take home, and some things for the kids. A lot of locals want you to come in an buy, and get a bit aggressive, with that "look"

    Benetton: famous brands

    by elsebeth Written Jul 28, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    there are 3 Benetton shops in Porec. its a considerable amount, since the town is quite small, but I guess its because if the tourists. The prices arent much lower than in Denmark so just go windowshopping, or if you need to spend some money..
