Farmers markets reopening

People can once again shop for food out in the open in a relaxing atmosphere

The farmer's markets are reopening after a brief winter break. The market at Náplavka already started Feb. 3, and the one at náměstí Jiřího z Poděbrad will start Feb. 14.

The markets, in general, offer a mix of fruits and vegetables grown by local farmers, meat, and cheese both from local sources and across Europe, baked goods to eat on the spot or take home, cooked meals and snacks, beer and wine, natural health aids, and some flowers and decorative items. Often there are local bands playing live music.

The Náplavka market, in its ninth season, has proven popular with both local residents and tourist, especially when the weather by the waterfront at Rašínovo nábřeží is pleasant.

On Feb. 10, the market at Náplavka is tied to the upcoming Masopust celebration, the Czech version of Mardi Gras. There will be an emphasis on cooked pork products and microbrew beer.

Náplavka over the season will also have a festival of rosé and claret wines, a beer festival and the annual St Martin¨s Day festival in the fall. Other events will be announced during the year.

The market called Heřmaňák at Řezáčovo náměstí opened in January, and it has adopted a policy of not having single-use plastic bags.

Hours at Náplavka are from 8 am to 2 pm and at Heřmaňák from 10 am to 3 pm, both only open on Saturdays. Sometimes the times are different due to special events.

The Náplavka and Heřmaňák markets are run by the civic group Archetyp, which was established in 2006.

The náměstí Jiřího z Poděbrad market opens its season Wednesday, Feb. 14, and the market runs Wednesdays through Saturdays.

The first date at Jiřák by coincidence is Valentine’s Day. The popular sweet treat macarons from Nos Macarons Boutique will be available, among other romantic food items.

The Wednesday to Friday markets run from 8 am to 6 pm, while the Saturday editions run 8 am to 2 pm.

There will be a special edition of the Jiřák market already on Feb. 17 dedicated to pork and beer called Pivo a prase na Jiřáku. Those items will be available at retro prices. More special markets including ones dedicated to international foods will be announced throughout the year. The market at Jiřák is run by the Prague 3 district administration.

The Kulaťák farmers market at Dejvice starts its ninth season March 3.
