The new warm weather in Prague comes with many perks. My personal favorite is the Naplavka Farmers Market every Saturday. Not only is the market huge, it is also right along the the water, making it even more enjoyable on a Saturday morning. The market is close to Old Town Square and even closer to my apartment.  If it wasn’t already obvious from my last few blogs, I’m a big foodie and I appreciate local, fresh food. I always make sure to bring a big backpack when I go to the market, so I can load up on fresh veggies, fish, and pasta for the week.

Each new Saturday offers some new vendors. The one vendor that is always there and is my first stop in the market is the S coffee stand. They have great tasting coffee and it’s super cheap! This past Saturday, I was thrilled when I came across a local lady that sold specialty biscuits. Being from the southern state of North Carolina, I eat my fair share of biscuits at home. I’ve noticed Europeans don’t include what I consider biscuits in their traditional breakfast and I’ve been missing them. This lady gave me a biscuit that was better than ones I have back at home. She had so many different flavor options so of course I had to try one of each.

If you don’t get excited about the food the market has, the flowers they sell are a reason alone to go. They are beautiful!! You can buy a single flower, or you can buy a bouquet. I always make sure to get a bouquet to lighten up my apartment!

The best part of the farmer’s market is that they have plenty of vendors selling freshly cooked full meals. You can go and eat lunch at the market and have anything from traditional Czech food to freshly baked sandwiches. After my biscuit, some soup, and some fresh bread, I finished my market lunch with a macaroon. I highly recommend the blueberry flavored one!

At the beginning of the market, there is always live music. Each band I’ve heard has been great! I have heard bands sing in both Czech and English.

One things to note about the H farmer’s market is that it gets crowded. It opens at 8:00 AM and closes around 3 PM. Once it hits 10:00, the market is packed with people. I suggest going in the morning to enjoy the market without having to fight the crowds. Even though it may be early, the coffee from Brew Bar, will quickly wake you up.
