This market is bustling on a Saturday, and has some lovely produce. However, when chatting to some Slovenians in the city, they said that it was quite expensive so not frequented that much by locals.

Main parts of this market are stalls with fresh local vegetables and fruit. Best selection is each Saturday morning. Better selection on summer. You will meet your friends and... More

A must visit if you're in Ljubljana. Lots of stalls selling everything from fresh produce, food, souvenirs... don't miss out on the food trucks. They serve really good fried fish!

Blooming bouquets and fresh fruit pack the stalls of Ljubljana’s Central Market. This bustling outdoor marketplace has everything you can imagine; from cured meats to handicrafts to chocolates. Most importantly, one of the stalls serve up some delightfully crunchy sauerkraut. I would know because during the walking tour, we were able to sample some! The bag made its round to... More

There's plenty to see at the open air market. Don't come late, the vendors start to close up by 3:30 for a 4:00 close.

Most of the market is fruit & vege and clothing/footware stalls for locals. A few stalls cater for tourism. Great if self-catering. Butcher shops in buildings next to it.

The local market is very nice to visit. I enjoyed to buy some fruit and watch the local people. There is a lot of varieties and the prices are low.

This market offers a lot, the locals from around Ljubljana bringing their products to the market. Even at the afternoon you can still have very good fruits, or sausages or cheese.

It is brilliant market. Full of local fruits, vegetables, meat (i tried even bear sausage!) and even more local products (honey, wines etc...). And a lot of bistros around, we had local version of fish and chips and it was delicious. And they had even wonderful artisanal ice-cream of extraordinary quality. I think evebody will find something good to eat... More

Brilliant array of fresh fruit and veg at good prices... Not full of tourists like other markets, here you can see all the locals doing their shopping too!
