Stary Kleparz Market, Krakow

Two minutes from the city wall and a five minute stroll through the cobbled back streets from the main square, Stary Kleparz Market in Krakow is apparently one of the oldest in the country – dating back to the 14th Century.

Cheap, cheerful and brimming with fresh vegetables and local meats and cheeses the market is as good a place to people watch as it is to shop.

Local grannies grab their thermals along with their cabbage.

Who: Local farmers and producers

What: Fresh veg, meat and cheese. Plants, seeds and bits and pieces of clothing

Why: To feed the locals

When: Most mornings (by the sounds of things, though my Polish isn’t too good)

Where: Rynek Kleparski
