The Old Market in Kleparz, is just a few steps from Kraków’s Old Town. It is a magical place and a paradise for the lovers of natural, traditional Polish food.
The Kleparz dictrict have been a market place since centuries. Even its name Kleparz, came from the word ?klepać? ? in local dialect meaning ‘to bargain?. And certainly you can do that now!
At the Kleparz market, local farmers from the surrounding villages, are selling fruits and vegetables. You can also find a real ?home made? cottage cheese, which is being sold by the older ladies, who are usually knitting, while waiting for customers! You can find real polish sausage made by local little butcher companies.
The market is always crowded and bursting with smells, sounds and colors. Most sellers are always willing to take time for small talk, which can help you find out exactly where the products you are buying came from, or how they are made. It is a great place to visit for all gourmets!
