Many know it as the Green Market. For everyone, especially the locals, it is simply the Pazar, the wonderful Market located in the homonymous street.
For us at Kanoa it is one of the absolutely must-see places of your holiday to Split. A large open-air market that, every day, offers a wide variety of fruit, vegetables, and always fresh products.
Beautiful. Chaotic. Colored. It is one of the central places of life in Split and, today, much loved by tourists who crowd it since the early hours of the morning. It is located between Ul. Stari pazar and Hrvojeva, where stands the Church of San Domenico, east of the Diocletian's Palace.
Here you can breathe the unique and genuine atmosphere of the city and of all of Dalmatia. Very animated. Spend some time among the lights, colors and scents of this market. You will be literally enveloped in the scent of lavender. You can bargain among the various stalls and bring home a bit 'of everything. Including the inevitable souvenirs.
Although they are not the best in the city, the prices are pretty good, and the quality is really excellent. A must of Split.
