Farmer’s Markets

Prague Farmer's MarketLuckily for those of us who live in Prague permanently, the concept of the farmer’s market has really caught on the past couple of years in the Czech capital. With regular days and times, farmer’s markets take over Prague squares in local neighborhoods, such Vínohrady, Dejvice, and Vršovice. Often times you will find local food stands here as well.
