The prices double once they figure out you are not local. So.... beware! The food is much cheaper anywhere else. Besides, the market is poorly organized. You can only see a couple of traces from bombs - just like anywhere else in the city.

Authentic and untouristy produce market – the different fruit, flowers and vegetables make it very colourful. It is very interesting to wander round it. It does have a sad history as it was bombed twice during the siege with the loss of many lives on...More

An outstanding market open 6 am – 5pm daily directly in the center of Sarajevo’s Old Town. Visiting today, one would not guess that it was the site of two deadly attacks during the Bosnian War. The first occurred on 5 February 1994 when 68...More

A place to buy fruits, vegetables and flowers. Friendly people and good prices. Believed that more than 70 people were killed in this market during the war 1992-1995. If you don’t want to buy, short visit will be enough.

Hard to rate. If you're not interested in the Bosnian war sites, its just a fruit market. If you are, it's where a mortar was deliberately aimed at a concentrated group of innocent civilians going about their daily business. The mortar impact site remains
