Tatarka Sunday Market – Groceries on the hills

This spot has been my regular Sunday destination since I moved to Tatarka neighborhood (which by the way deserves its own article). Sunday markets are a traditional thing in Kyiv – every weekend, local farmers occupy a certain street in each of the ten city districts. Locals walk around, meet neighbors, buy groceries, chat with the farmers… All these markets are more or less similar, but at Tatarka you can combine grocery shopping with a nice walk in an unobvious place. 

My advice would be to walk around, check the stalls, try something here and there – fruits, nuts, cheese, sour cabbage (yum!), buy shashlyk (grilled pieces of pork) which is cooked right on the spot, take a cup of freshly squeezed pomegranate juice and prepare for walking up and down the hills. Tatarka is quite a unique neighborhood with some nice views strange places, such as the Old Believers Cemetery and Makariivska Church, steep hills, abandoned old huts from the beginning of the 20th century, typical soviet blocks and the only mosque in Kyiv.

You can finish your walk at Closer club or proceed and explore the beautiful Podil district.
