I am not talking about (a) shop(s) here but about the stands at the market place.
There is a market in Ljubljana every day, we here in The Netherlands are so used to go shopping for quite some days in one time and then fill our freezers..
But I always love seeing women going to market each day, to get whatever is fresh and best that day and perhaps even cheapest!
Perhaps this really appears the right thing to do in countries where summer is summer or where temps are always thus that lots of things can take place in the open air!
Look how very colourful ......

this will be my shopping tips for the Magnificent Central market, I will have a separate things to to tip here.
The Central market of Ljubljana is a well thought and well designed market and does not feell congested at all, the market was constructed in 1939 and stretches from between the Triple Bridge and the Dragon Bridge and was designed by famous Slovene architect named Jože Plecnik in an art noveau design. The market consists of several structures such as an open-air market, located in the Vodnikov trg and Pogacarnev trg squares, a covered market situated in between the two squares, and a series of small food shops along the river Ljubljanica, which are referred to as 'Plecnik's Covered Market' (I have a separate tip for it) and the sections are composed of a flower market at the junction of Pogaèar Square and Vodnik Square, a fish market and dried fruit on the lower level of the market hall and bakery, dairy and meat stalls on both levels and along the triple bridge is where the stalls selling herbs, spices, and arts and crafts are located.
the market is also connected to the other side of the Ljublanica River by a new third bridge in the middle, called butcher's bridge, made in 2010.
the market is open from 8:00 am to 6:00 pm everyday except on sundays
