Dolac Market Overview

Dolac Market is an open-air farmer market in the Gornji Grad - Medveščak city district of Zagreb, Croatia. Opened in 1930, it is not only the oldest market but also one of Zagreb’s renowned places. You can identify the market under the umbrellas decorated in the style of the Šestine folk costume.

The market has two sections: an open-air market square and a street-level indoor market. The open-air market is for fresh fruits, eggs and vegetables, whereas the street-level indoor market is for flowers, meat, dairy products and fish.

While strolling around the market, taste and buy different kinds of flavoursome cuisines. Some must-try dairy products include sir i vrhnje (cream cheese), which is typically served with a pinch of spices or salt. You can also try some Croatian meals like grah (bean stew), grilled fish with a side serving of blitva (garlic-spiked sautéed Swiss chard and potatoes), and purica s mlincima (roasted turkey with baked noodles). Additionally, homemade cornbread from the dairy section is a must-try.
