    Central market: Clean and Wide Market

    by machomikemd Updated Mar 7, 2016

    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

    What to buy: all the typical items you can find on markets in any city like local fruits, local foods, local street foods, souvenir items, local arts and crafts, open air restaurants and a lot more.

    What to pay: prices are mostly fixed for the meats and local cuisines but you can haggle for the fresh fruits and for buying souvenir items as well.

    by Marie-France Written Sep 1, 2003

    An interesting and colourful outdoor market in the old town. There is also a covered section nearby in the Plecnik Colonnade.

    This is not a handicraft market but rather a local market that sells produce, flowers, candles, baskets, etc.

    Address: Pogarcarjev trg

    Directions: From Presernov trg (main square) cross the triple bridge and turn left.

    Colourful market umbrellas

    by travelbug102 Written Sep 29, 2004
