    Mercator: Grocery shopping

    by christine.j Written Nov 18, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I wanted to get some more water and was looking for a grocery store, when my daughter said I had just passed one. I turned around and still didn't see it. This was on Glavni square with the city hall, the plague memorial, so a very busy place and still I couldn't see any grocery shop.

    Its name is Mercator - there are several in Maribor - and it looked very small from the outside, but it's a normal shop inside.

    Address: Glavni Square

    Directions: It's next to the city hall.

    The farmers market in Maribor is great! It is located in a big area in the Lent, the stands are under some big awnings and they have a good selection of fruits, vegetables, fresh mushrooms and local crafts.
    All the farmers pile up their products nicely so it is not just good tasting stuff, it also look good!

    farmers stalls at Glavni trg: organic market on fridays

    by picek Updated Feb 17, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The organic market takes place on fridays at the main square - Glavni trg from morning until 12 am or so. It is not really 'big' nor crowded and in fact numer of stalls and sellers vary - depends on season and whether there're other activites around.
    This is good chance to buy fresh and healthy fruit and vegetable; also home made products such as herb teas, spreads, home baked breads and cakes.
    All these product are certified organic, so don't need to doubt whether these are just some people trying to sell you just 'a little sprayed' food.

    What to buy: Take healthy herbal teas which are hand picked from Slovenian soil - can be there any nicer yet simple gift? They come packed in small paper bags and are of different plants with medicinal properties, also used in traditional medicine.
    Maybe now it is finally right time to buy dried fruits which come from local apples and pears, sometimes kaki.
    Or why not seeds? These are of wheat, oat, buckwheat... to make delicious central european dishes. How about pumpkin seed from slovenian 'golica' (dark green colored make perfect pumpkin oil and yes, it's good gift too).
    Maybe juices for their great amount of vitamins. Apple or grape juices are really nice when they're from 'real' fruits and you know you don't have to drink 'pesticide cocktail' and other suspicious additives.
    Finally, home made jams and marmelade... honey products and true home made Slavic 'slivovica' from plum trees near Maribor.

    Address: Glavni trg - main square

    Directions: It's in the centre, where most turist attractions are, on the Main square, Glavni trg

    On River's Edge: Central Market

    by painterdave Written Sep 9, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This market has vegetables and fruit, and inside the nearby building has cheese and meat products. There are also craft sellers there, especially basket makers, which seem to be a specialty of Slovenia.

    What to buy: They have awesome peppers in the summer, huge ones, they call these paprika.
    I took some home, and saved the seeds for next summer.
    The items in the market are exceptional, not bruised or over ripe.
    Check out the sunflower seeds, if you are from America, they are different here, bigger and more tasty.
    Honey is also a specialty, of course.

    What to pay: The prices are not lower just because these farmers raise their own products, just the products are better than you find in the store, usually.

    Address: On side of River, up river from old bridge

    Market

    by Willettsworld Written Sep 24, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Behind the Judgement Tower in Lent, lies this market which is split into two halves. The first half, south of Koroska cesta, is mostly full of clothes stalls whilst the northern half features fruit and vegetable stalls. Up until the 2nd World War, the market used to be located in front of the Town Hall in Glavni trg.

    Europark - on the right river bank of Drava

    by anaiis Updated Jan 27, 2003

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Shopping mall. What else could you need? There are some pluses, however. You have a really really great view over the city from the Spar restaurant there. Although smokers are NOT seperated from you, which is like yuck. There are also some other restaurants, but with even worse air to inhale. Or was I stupid to go there during the pre-New Year shopping crazyness?

    Address: Pobreska cesta 18, Maribor

    Directions: Pobrezje district. Next to the rail just entering its own bridge.

    Various: Saturday shopping

    by orlikins Written Sep 17, 2002

    In Maribor, shops are closed by 1 on Saturday, which was very irritating!

    Most of the big name German/Austrian retailers are available in Maribor.

    What to buy: Plenty of Grazers drive over the border to stock up on cheaper commodities in Maribor
