A brand new farmers market has joined the farmers market scene in Prague, kicking off its historic first season on March 20th, 2012. Aptly named the Trhy Tylak – or Tylak Market, using the slang term for the square – this bright new star is very conveniently located at Tylovo Náměstí, near the metro stop at IP Pavlova (on the red C line), and adjacent to the popular tram hub of the much-used daytime trams 4, 6, 10, 11, 16, and 22, as well as multiple city buses. This perfectly-accessible location is actually historic as well. In the past, Tylovo Náměstí was the central gathering point for this part of Prague 2, according to the market's manager. Recently refurbished and updated, Tylovo Náměstí has reclaimed its roots and once again become the center of traditional cultural life and meetings with friends by means of the Tylak Farmers Market. Farmers Markets in Prague provide a unique opportunity for residents and visitors of all ages to get together and buy or sell high-quality produce items at prices that benefit not only the seller – who are the actual producers of the goods – but also the buyer, since the middle-man is removed from the process. Products for sale typically include honey of different varieties, fruits and fruit juices, vegetables, flowers, as well as dairy and meat products, including fresh and cured meats like sausages. All of the products are strictly from the Czech Republic, concentrating on areas around Prague specifically, unlike the occasional international foods you find at other markets. The Tylak farmers market at IP Pavlova runs every Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday from 11:00am – 4:00pm, and on Saturdays from 9:00am – 2:00pm.
