Whether in the States or overseas, one of my favorite thing in the world is going to markets! I don’t care what kind they are, Christmas, food, flower, or arts and crafts markets, count me in. I love viewing beautiful art made by local craftsmen, tasting food from chefs and buying fresh produce from local farmers. I just love it! I find it is one of the best ways to experience a local culture.
David and I knew there was an extensive produce/flower market in Ljubljana from a Rick Steves show. However, when our taxi driver took us from the bus station to our beautiful hotel, he told us about a food festival on Fridays called Open Kitchen. Restaurants from all over town set up booths in the market area. Thankfully, our stay included a Friday, so I could not imagine a better scenario!
