If you’re headed to Prague, you’ll find more than a few fresh markets scattered around the city. There’s the popular one south of old town (which I recommend skipping; it’s a tourist trap and far less impressive than its local counterparts). There’s Jirak to the east.
And then there’s this lovely, lively market to the north.
What you’ll find: fresh seasonal produce, honey, nuts, cheeses, meats, fish, bread, pastries, herbs, dried fruits, plants, whole chickens, duck, turkey, coffee, food trucks.
To get there: Take the tram or walk to Prague 6 and make your way to this park.
When to go: Saturday 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. In general, the earlier you go, the less crowded it’ll be.
Language: Czech! Some vendors will speak English and pretty much all will have calculators (so they can show you the total if they don’t speak English).
