Here comes my favorite time of any trip.  This lovely local market, Stary Kleparz, was literally around the corner from my apartment.

Poland is definitely big on berries. Used in all kinds of dishes.

I saw a few of these even in supermarkets and wondered how you're supposed to use them.  Have not looked up yet.

Some of the shops were sectioned off like this one with windows but often sold similar products. Did not bother to check if prices were different but this shop’s products just look more expensive.

I bought dried lavender sachets from her.  She spoke good English but said her French was better.

Someone told me the season was nearly over but I still saw lots of chanterelle mushrooms.
