Trešnjevka market in Osaljska street, Zagreb / Croatia

Zagreb, capital of Croatia, has several nice markets full of fresh produce and Croatian specialities.

The Trešnjevka market in Ozaljska street (scroll down for map) is embedded in a busy environment not in a historical setting as the main market Dolac. It looks very much like a farmers’ market and offers daily seasonal fruits, vegetables, honey and other products on temporary stands, whereas some butchers, cheese sellers etc. are on permanent buildings on the Eastern wing. On the Western wing some cafés, bars and Cevapcici stands are located. The latter ones are open till late, a nice offer when going home late from work.

In the morning the sellers come to a central building at the market to pick up standardized umbrellas and scales (for a fee?). All temporary structures look alike which gives very much a sense of order.

All in all: a very fine market for daily consumption, a place to pick up some local food souvenirs and eat great Cevapcici. Or to get flowers for a nice person.
