Stary Kleparz Market Krakow for shopping deals

Stary Kleparz Market Krakow is one of the great shopping locations in the city for food, clothes, textiles and lace. The market is located north of the Barbican outside St. Florian’s Gate Stare Miasto-Old Town. Stary Kleparz tram stop by the Barbican places you within 100 meters of Stary Kleparz Market and is serviced by routes 2, 4, 14, 20, 24, 44, 64, 69.

You can walk there in five minutes from Krakow train station/Krakowska Galeria mall or around 10 minutes from Krakow Old Town Rynek Glowny market square.

Fruits and vegetables, bread and cheese are generally cheaper to buy here than in grocery stores around the city.

    Is it a bargaining type of market or are the prices set?

    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,
