  1. Some bargaining, but most things seem to have prices.

    Went to Plac Nowy in Kazimierz after writing this post when all the food stalls closed and the entire square filled mostly with clothing sellers, some jewelry and trinkets. That was primarily a bargaining market.

    Kelley felt like she cleaned up on bargains.

    Also, I will edit this post to say that nearly every stall closed at Stary Kleparz on Sunday at 11am when we stopped by today. Only a couple of food stalls open. And we stopped by there on Saturday afternoon to find many of the stalls closed. I don’t know if the clothing shops had opened at all on Saturday and many shops closed at noon or 13:00 on Saturday.

    Go to Stary Kleparz on a weekday to get the market on full swing,
