Náplavka Farmers Market

Náplavka is a traditional farmers market located off the Vltava riverbank in Prague. The name which literally translates to “at the riverbank” is a great place for tourists as well as residents to stroll and buy some fresh foods for the family. It is the most central market in the city and makes for a great weekend outing.

The Náplavka market features some interesting artisan shops selling both food and artisan goods from local people. Depending on the season, tourists will get to bask in a whole new environment of fresh seasonal fruits & vegetables, fish, meat and dairy products. Seasonal favorites such as fresh green asparagus from Mělník, strawberries from Kunratic and freshly picked fruits are a rage here. The baked goods sold at the market are sourced from local bakeries and therefore much better in quality than those sold in grocery stores. Shoppers can also shop for dairy products, eggs, cheeses and fresh milk that are of significantly good quality. The vibes at the farmers market are very positive and relaxed as you see the sellers enthusiastically promoting their goods along the way helping the economy and reducing the carbon footprint.
