Prague Lifestyle > Shopping in Prague > Outdoor Markets

The wonderful outdoor market; there is something special about buying fresh fruits, vegetables, homemade goods and toys from local vendors in their outdoor stalls. The city of Prague has two permanent main outdoor shopping markets, and plenty of weekly or semi-weekly farmers markets or flea markets to enjoy in warmer weather, but during Easter and Christmas, the number of outdoor markets in Prague soars to an entirely new height. Major squares feature wooden stalls filled with goodies, souvenirs, some homemade goods, and mulled wine; the markets become places where locals and tourists gather together in the spirit of the season and in the spirit of spending.

Havel Market Detail | Prague Shopping

Havel Market

One of the oldest markets in the city, Havel Market dates back to 1232. Originally selling only produce, the market has changed over the years, mainly with tourists in mind. Lately it seems though that the produce stalls are starting to outnumber the souvenir stalls, which is a good thing as many stalls sell the same tourist junk you can find all over Old Town. Some stalls however offer inexpensive handmade Czech crystal and glass...

Located in Holesovice, next to the flowing Vltava, is the Holesovicka Trznice or the Holesovice Market. This market was once the central slaughterhouse and cattle market for the royal city of Prague under Austro-Hungarian rule.
