In Skopje there are several green bazaars. If you want to experience the real life in Skopje, you should visit one of them. My favorite one is this Bazaar located in one of the oldest neighborhood “Debar Maalo” in Skopje. It is in the center of the city.
At this Green Bazaar you can buy everything, from vegetables and fruits to cloths. I love to go there every Saturday. Most of the food is organic, there are still old people who produce their food (they are not resellers).
This is one of the more expensive bazaars; the quality of the products is perfect. But in comparison with other countries, the green bazaars in Skopje are cheap. In summer you can buy a 10kg watermelon for 60 MKD (this is around 1 euro).
I must recommend buying the Macedonian cheese. It is one of a kind, it is a must taste. You must try the cherries, peaches, and all the fruit that is produced in Macedonia. And I don’t want to forget the tomato produced in Skopje region (“Skopski Jabuchar”), you must try that.
I highly recommend visiting this place and feeling the soul of Macedonian common people.
