The latest edition of the Midsummer Market (Jarmark Świętojański) opens its doors to the public on Friday at 10am.
The summer themed market will stay open until June the 24th and will also incorporate the popular ‘Europe on a Fork’ food festival, which takes place between May 29th and June 2nd.
The Jarmark Świętojański does have a rather surreal look to it in that you generally see the same huts and wooden shop fronts from the Christmas market. To make the place look a lot more ‘summery’, small plots of turf, decorative flowers and a sand pit are incorporated into the layout.
Expect to see plenty of crockery, plus Polish delicacies such as sausages, ham and mountain cheese. The stalls won’t be just limited to traditional Polish products though, as there will also be sellers boasting fresh produce from all over Europe.
Both this and next weekend the market will host flower exhibitions and competitions, while various live cooking demos will form part of the Europe on a Fork food festival.
