Nestled in the heart of Prague 10, residents will be pleased to find the Kubánské náměstí Farmers Market, locally referred to as “Kubáň” – named for the affectionate slang term for the Kubánské Náměstí square. At farmers markets in Prague, especially ones located in traditional residential areas, such as the Kubáň Market, you can truly get to know Czech culture. Many foreigners would be unacquainted with typical Czech holidays without the food traditions associated with them, especially those most traditionally celebrated in villages rather than central Prague. Farmers markets in Prague allow you have a true Czech culinary experience, such as buying a goose and dumplings for St. Martins Day, preparing for Czech Easter by weaving your own Easter wand, celebrating the arrival of fresh green Czech asparagus from Mělník in the spring, experiencing the best of Czech harvest products such as Czech apples and pears from Bohemia- as well as locally-beloved Czech garlic, celebrating the new wine Burcak with tastings and music festivals, as well as fun events such as Strawberry Festivals complete with costume contests for the kids. St. Nicholas Day, Svatý Mikuláš, in December also brings its own fun with costumes and candy galore, and late November and early December also herald the arrival of the traditional pig-killing time known and beloved to all Czechs as "zabijačka", with many traditional products like sausages and goulash (don't worry- no pigs are actually killed at the markets, just the traditional products from this time of year are offered). International fun can also be had at Czech farmers markets such as the excellent Kubáň Farmers Market in Prague 10, with such events as carve-your-own Jack o'Lantern events around Halloween. The Kubanske Namesti farmers market is held each Saturday in the warmer months from 8:00am- 2:00pm, and also on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 8:00am- 6:00pm. Trams 6, 7, 22, 24 all stop at Kubánské náměstí, which makes getting to the Kubáň Farmers Market a snap.
