Green Market

Croatia > Split

Sample the local flavours and bustling energy of Split with a trip to the popular Green Market, which is open every day. This is the very heart and soul of the town, attracting hundreds of shoppers looking for fresh ingredients and tasty Croatian snacks. At Stari Pazar, as it's often called, you'll find stalls selling everything from seasonal produce, flowers and freshly baked bread to handmade goods and clothes. There's also plenty of local liqueurs, fragrant lavender and home-pressed olive oil to peruse. Whatever you're in the market for, chances are Green Market will surprise and delight - and the friendly vendors will make you fall in love with Split all over again.

Where is it?

Split's Green Market is situated on Stari pazar street right next to the walls of the former Diocletian's Palace, just a couple of blocks away from the waterfront. If you're visiting Split by cruise, it's just a hop, skip and a jump away from the ferry terminal. Navigate your way to Tommy Supermarket T-107 and you'll see the open air market just behind it.

Note: The Green Market is particularly pleasant on warmer days, as all the trees offer much needed shade from the sun's rays.

Top tips:

  • Get there early to avoid throngs of cruise ship visitors
  • Do your best to act like you've done this before, and you'll have a better chance of avoiding the vendors hawking overpriced touristy goods
  • You might want to pick up some food here and bring it up Marjan Hill - the best vista point in Split - for a picnic
