Prague’s Jirak Farmers Market: A Photo Essay & Overview

by Gigi Griffis

First things first: if you’re headed to Prague, skip the popular farmers market along the river just south of old town. It’s expensive and crowded and not nearly as good as the markets tucked away in the neighborhoods outside the center.

Like this one.

Which is smallish and darling and held in a cute little park a little ways outside old town.

What you’ll find: fresh seasonal produce, honey, nuts, cheeses, meats, bread, pastries, herbs, dried fruits, spreads, jams, coffee, food trucks.

To get there: Head toward the TV tower (Prague’s ugliest building) and you’ll find Jirak along the edges of a little park. Google Maps knows the way.

When to go: Wednesday to Friday 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. or 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).
