I’m lucky to live in the neighborhood of Halės market which I do think is one of the best out there. And the oldest one in Vilnius to be mentioned. I go there at least twice a week for various reasons. But most of the time I head there for seasonal veggies from local farmers or tasty cheeses from my beloved shop called Roots.
However that’s only a small amount of things you can find in the market. I haven’t mentioned the large amount of produce such as fruits, meat, fish, nuts, spices, fresh juice or other treats for your table. Besides those, there’s a bunch of clothing and shoe shops. Not a big fan of them myself, but some people find them quite amusing and relatively cheap.
The market also hosts great eating spots like: City chef – everything meat and bbq, Wingis – jerk chicken paradise, Beigelistai – for your bagel crave, and the list goes on and on. There’s even a bar that opens up only after the regular market closes! Grab a beer or a cocktail from Youngs’ Club and enjoy the market from a different perspective.
Ultimately – marketplaces are always fun to visit. Even if you’re not looking for anything in specific. At the time you leave the market you won’t be empty-handed. Verified in practice for a thousand times.
