This is a square close to the main square that plays host to the farmers market. If you want to see the market, don't go late, most of them pack up early in the evening. Many interesting shops and restaurants in the vicinity.

Close to the triple bridge (between it and the dragon bridge) and across from the cathedral, this square holds a lovely farmer's market. One can find fruits and vegetables, flowers, dry meat and even a few things for tourists.

I loved the Farmer market at Vodnik Square - they have everything starting wild organic honey and finishing fresh cheeses and cured meats. My favorite thing to buy is preserved mushrooms - I can't get it anywhere else, definitely not in the U.S. Everything is extremely affordable.

As this is the market for locals, it's open 365 days a year. Fresh fruit and vegetables. Prices are good and people are helpful.
