    Local markets

    by SirRichard Written Jan 7, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you like street markets, you can find a few in Croatia, like this one in Zagreb, in a square named Dolac, in the city centre. There were mainly fruits and veggies but also flowers, some local craft and food vendors.

    by Galeretours Written Aug 7, 2006

    Sells all food / drinks, limted meat display.We were getting in provisions for 6 people/2 weeks, before leaving Kastela Marina. to sail to Dubrovnik.
    2 trolleyfuls, 150 EUR. When we tried to leave the grounds with the trolleys, were stopped by security, who wouldn't believe we intended to return them. After a couple of minutes of negociations, management provided a van + driver .... for free! Will try this at every supermarket in the neighbourhoud of a marina in future

    Kras products

    by anaiis Updated Sep 22, 2002

    Kras's sweets are something special. They are very retro now! Since in former Yugoslavia there was almost no other brand of candies, we were glad to have Kras (pronoun. Krash). The Kras's products you will still find in most of the shops in former Yugoslavia (also in Slovenia, Ljubljana). Kras does make some salty products also like salted sticks, salted fish shaped bytes etc. Kras hasn't changed the envelope of its products for decades and that is what makes it so special! Now we are eating this products with nostalgy, remembering our childhood when we were revarded with these candies. And we worshiped the Kras's boxes and looked at the envelopes as there was some hidden answer. Kras's factory was first established in 1911 so our parents and even grandparents share the same feelings about it.

    What to buy: Featuring - these on the picture are called "ice cubes" or "ledene kocke". Those are filled chockolate cubes. Quite delicious.

    What to pay: A bit less than avarage chocholate candies.

    so called ice cubes Fontana

    There are a lot of things to buy, such as handicrafts reflecting the rich folklore (lace on Pag, national costumes in Slavonia, embroidered tablecloths etc.), leather goods, crystal, silver filigree jewellery or jewellery made of corals and sea shells, natural sponge, ceramics, local handicrafts, hand-made goods, hand-carved items in lustrous Brac island stone paintings and sculptures by naive artists etc. And the traditional gingerbread cakes of all shapes and sizes, especially heart-shaped, are not only a gift to dear people but also as Christmas tree decorations.

    Numerous small boutiques and open markets offer a good choice of clothes, shoes and bags. Of course, ties - cravats in fashionable designs are a popular buy in the country of their origin - Croatia.

    While in Croatia many visitors enjoy and take home the only original marachino sour cherry liqueur and cherry brandy, excellent wines, typical brandies (based on the basis of winepress residue and herbs), sweet prosecco (sherry) wine, different products on the basis of truffles, virgin olive oil, capers, tinned fillets of salted fish, smoked ham, kulen and other smoked and cured meats, not forgetting the internationally renowed food seasoning Vegeta. Dried spices and all kinds of flowers, some of which processed into oils, particularly lavender, remind tourists of the time spent in Croatia.

    Markets all over the place !

    by dassi Updated Jun 28, 2005

    Well this is not a shop in that sence :) This is about markets on the street. You find them all over Croatia and they sell it all ,food like fruit .meat,fish and you name it. All kind of clothes, Jewlery ,books ,antiques, souvenirs and lots more !!
    It is just fantastic to wonder around those places either just looking at the life going on in there or shop and you can both get something to eat and drink while doing so. I could not get enough of it and spent many hours just walking all over the place, specially in Split but it was the biggest one I came to.

    What to buy: In the markets i would like to buy a lot of things mostly in the food section, I loved the strawberries :)
    It is cheap to shop and you can try to talk about the price and geta good bargain out of it.

    What to pay: No limit !

    Just put wipped cream on top an start eating :)

    They sell sea shells...

    by ChrisAlexander Written Mar 31, 2004

    The town is full of little capitalists like these two? These and other kids collect shells from the shores around Hvar Town and try to sell them on the quaysides competing with the other sellers who have stalls there. No wonder I didn?t see many shells down by the water, the kids take all the nice ones.

    What to buy: Elsewhere you can find fresh lavener and also the bottled oil.Olive oil too.

    What to pay: A few Kuna,or Euros or something nice from your pocket or bag (kids love shiney things with bright colours,so try bartering)
