Croatian Eats: Green Market/Pazar

I couldn’t be happy that our hostel in Split was just a stone throw away from the Green Market [ul. Stari Pazar, Split, Croatia], or Pazar as the locals call it.

When we would pick one fruit for the day he would throw extra other items in our bag for us to try. We loved him! Our fruit came on hikes and to the beach with us, so fresh and sweet.

Walking up and down the aisles of the market you can find a whole lot more than food. This is a great place for souvenirs housing knick-knacks, clothes, hats, sunglasses, and jewelry. This place gets crowded as the day goes on, best to get there early to avoid the throngs of people in the narrow alleyways!
