Farmers' Market Podgorica

Farmers’ Market – More than just a market

Although it does not look like it on first sight, green markets are way more than just shopping places. If you are visiting historical museums to learn more about the past of a country, going for a visit to a local farmers’ market is a great way to find out a lot about the present and about the people, too.

I personally enjoy it more when I buy from locals, because the groceries are (in most cases) healthier and more fresh than those from supermarkets. Also, it is a great way to support local farmers, and it is very important for them, because agriculture in Montenegro is not so developed, so being a farmer is really a challenge.

The atmosphere is another thing that I really like about this place. Going for a kilo of apples often turns into a conversation about different life topics or simply a chat about the weather, and all of that followed by the famous Montenegrin humor. It is not rare to receive a gift from local vendors:  I’ve come back home several times with house plants, an extra box of raspberries or homemade cookies.

There is definitely something about the farmers market “subculture” that’s worth paying a visit to. So, if you don’t usually go to these places when travelling, I suggest you start as soon as possible!
