Autumn is the best time of the year when it comes to fresh vegetables. Marketplaces all over the country are sprawling with fresh veggies. Pumpkins, Brussels sprouts, root vegetables and a real apple extravaganza. But most of modern Polish marketplaces are not only about carrots and apples. You can buy local goods in jars which work great as souvenirs, try something tasty (like a traditional stuffed jacket potato) or simply go eye shopping. There’s plenty of markets in Krakow and some of them are definitely worth a visit. Here’s our top 5!

Even though summer is still a couple of months away, we know that great things are waiting along the way—and, like most great things, they’re edible! Come join us in the search for Polish springtime must-haves.
