Traditional food markets of Split

Scroll down to content

My favorite places in Dalmatia are food markets. Especially the traditional fish markets. Lively. Colorful. Noisy. The essential thing then visiting these places is to be there early but the crowds are here till early afternoon hours. Except on the fish market where arriving early means crucial advantage when picking the best pieces of last night’s catch. Of course, the top pieces go straight to “big players” and restaurants but there is plenty of fresh fish for everyone!

Market of Split, or Pazar is a special place: the people from entire hinterland and islands are here bringing their produce. Strawberries of Vrgorac or tangerines of Brac are among the hottest stuff when their season arrives.
Last Saturday, the local traditional food fair was held at the Diocletian’s cellars. That was a wonderful exhibition of local products made out of love and enthusiasm: scented olive oil soaps and cosmetics, wines and honey, sweets, ham and cheese… and plenty of people in traditional costumes.

Next to the wall of the Palace, merchants still sell their stuff. Probably as their predecessors did for centuries..

Pazar of Split is a great place to find locally grown (often ecologically) vegetables and fruits. When in Split, it is nice just to walk among the desks and to enjoy the traditional Mediterranean atmosphere this city is famous for!
