Fruits and vegetables market
The market is not easy to find. It is in the upper part of the main Boulevard of the new part of the city, formerly called Bulevar Maršala Tita. When you walk upwards, it entrance stands between two shops, almost unidentified, on the left, after the collective taxi station.
What to buy: It is a wide covered market where peasants from the neighborhood bring tomatoes, squash, peaches, grapes, and onions. Everything is very fresh as it has been collected in the neighborhood. Some of the women have kept a part of the traditional dressing but they are not many.
When you have no money, you must think about anything that can be used for free! Here a man selling sunglasses has found that the legs of a street balcony would make a perfect holder for its glasses. Each leg has its glasses, tight at the rear by a mere rubber band! Clever, isn't it?
Any green grocers or supermarket MAX: Buying Montenegrian beer
When on a tight budget, it's a good idea to purchase the
2 litre bottles sold in plastic bottles. Just ask for PIVO, similar to the Russian
word 'piva'(Serbian language: пиво / pivo)
What to buy:
The most popular is the
four lagers under the brand name "Nik": Nikšićko pivo, Nik Gold,
Nik Cool, and Nikšićko tamno. Then the Serbian beer Jelen
easily noticible with a yellow label and a stags head.
There was a 3rd brand MB Pils, not sure where that is made?
Maybe Montenegro became independant but not the tastes
in beers. In fact in Serbia they made a survey and Jelen came in
first with 30% of the votes and Nik beer came in 2nd with 26%.
It makes economic sense
for the beer drinker to buy a large bottle and share amongst friends,
or if your renting a room or apartment with a fridge, to sit outside
and sip on the local large coldie with the location of your choice.
What to pay:
With beers costing between €1 for a mini beer in a 0.25 Litre bottle
or €1.50 to €2.50 for a 0.33 Litre bottle or 0.5 Litre bottle,
Most small shops selling tourist and beach stuff: CLACKERS for the kids
IT'S THE CLACKERS that are the attraction/craze
that matters...many different colours, even saw
ones with Hanna Montanna on.
What to buy:
CLACKERS or as they seem to call them in
Serbian/Montenegrian "Clickety Clack"
What to pay:
About €2 for the dangly balls on a bit of
coloured string with a ring on the end,
usually worn on the ring finger!
They make a helluva noise and Ulcinj
Mala Plaza was Clikety Clack for almost the whole day..
