A quick stop in Split on our way to catch the ferry gave us the chance to wander around the city’s open air market, Split Pazar. Covered by a canopy of trees, the Green Market it is one of the prettiest markets I have seen.
To savour the full array of produce you should go early in the morning, not closer to closing time as we did. However there was still a good selection available and I was able to pick up some fresh figs for the ferry trip.
The market also has a large selection of flowers and the women are only too happy to arrange a mixed bunch for you,
But it is the fresh produce that I love to see. The dappled light plays games on the seasonal fruit and vegetables. If it is in season you will find it here. Check out the prices as you wander through the market as they can be a bit high. Buy some local cheese…the best is Paski Sir from the island of Pag and some Croatian prosciutto which is called prsut.
I’m not sure I would know how to tackle these carob pods but after tasting the country’s famous carob cake, I would like to learn!
Agave, beans or lemons or even some home made olive oil….the market sells what ever is in season
The market can be found on the eastern side of the Diocletian’s Palace just near the ferry terminal.
You can’t miss it…just look for the trees!
