Those looking for a taste of local life in Zagreb should head to the daily Dolac Market, the capital’s oldest and busiest food market, overlooking the central Jelačića Square. With dozens of stalls spread throughout the lower covered market-hall and upper open-air plaza, Dolac Market has become something of a local institution and farmers from the surrounding villages have been bringing their home-grown produce to the bustling marketplace for over eighty years.

This is the place to pick up homemade Sir i Vrhnje (cream covered cheese), colorful bunches of freshly cut flowers and an array of meat, seafood and vegetables, but the market is also a popular spot to eat lunch. Gableci – cheap yet hearty meals, popular among local workers – are ideal for those on a budget and there are an abundance of makeshift cafés and street food outlets dotted around the marketplace. The traditional menus often change daily, but look out for local specialties like Grah (thick bean stew), Purica s Mlincima (roasted turkey with Zagorje noodles) or Krautflekerli (pasta and roasted cabbage).
