Central Market, Ljubljana
Concierge.com's insider take:
One of Plečnik's greatest designs is the colonnaded Central Market along Adamič-Lundrovo Nabrežje, just behind the cathedral. The stalls of the market fill the squares of Vodnikov Trg (mostly fruits and vegetables) and the adjacent Pogačarjev Trg (crafts and spices). A lot of the produce is imported from Spain and the Netherlands, but there is local stock, too. Some stalls sell nothing but salad leaves, great sacks of arugula, frisée, and oak-leaf lettuce. There are displays of honey and beeswax candles, dried mushrooms, hand-made farm implements, baskets, hand-knits and sheepskins (Mon.–Sat.). On Sundays, there's an eclectic flea market running south from the Triple Bridge along the Cankarjevo Nabrežje riverside walk, where there are lots of enticing café tables.
