This is definetly one of my favourite places in Cracow and I think none should skip that. This is where you can find unique souvenir from your travels and every time I sent someone there I get the feedback that it was awesome and that this person buy something really nice. It's open only on Sunday, because in every other day there is a Farmer Market which I also recommend to shop for fresh fruits, vegetables etc. The flea market is quite huge and have diffrent kind of things - from very expensive antiques to just a random objects that some guys found on the streets. I buy there for example this old school radio: flea_market_cracow

Or this wicker basket and blue bottles

But you can also buy jewellery, postcards, old photos, toys, clothes and more and more. I hunt for treasures all the time, so I created an album on fanpage where I post all the things that I was lucky to find at Hala Targowa.

It is open from very early in the morning (one seller told me they are there from 4 am, but I've never ever been there so ealry) and they start to pack up around 2-3 pm. Try to bargain, but not too much. They say that from Cracow are misers and they count every cent. Last time I was there, I asked the guy for the price, he said "60" and it seemed too much for me, so I asked "can I bargain?" and his sad "Yes, of course. It is 70 now". So...They will for sure tell you the higher price, if they know you're not polish, so what you can do is to stand there and let them see that you wonder whether to buy and it's possible that they will just tell you the lower price. Good luck with hunting and let me show what you got (you can send me the picture or use #planetpoland hashtag).

I recently shoot this video to show you a little bit more of Hala Targowa:

Whenever I travel I am always very interested in the everyday life of locals. I find it weirdly appealing to watch people doing normal stuff in a totally different context! All of a sudden, you see people doing regular things in totally different ways: they sell different things in shops, wear different clothes, and even have alternative ways of taking out the trash! As much as I love seeing castles and museums, I could spend hours just observing people on the streets and wondering where they go after I’ve lost sight of them. If only I could follow them and see how they live, what kind of coffee they drink, whether or not they have pets, how their homes are decorated… Of course if I did just follow people down the street and invite myself into their homes, the only place I would end up would be under police arrest.
