To Market! in Sofia

23 08 2015

I initially only found this smaller covered market, the Central Sofia Market Hall or Tsentralni Hali, in the very center of Sofia, Bulgaria.

Upstairs of the two-story market was occupied by a drug store where the number of detergents and other soap kind of product was overwhelming.

And a couple of days later, I found (as I was not reading closely enough) this market, Zhenski Pazar (Women’s market), the one I should have gone to in the first place.  It was towards the end of the day so it wasn’t that busy and I’m not sure that all the shops were there but it was fun.

Where I bought a couple of eggplants. I would’ve gone for the white one as that is rare in Japan but they looked too ripe and the guy selling them said I shouldn’t.

And I bought blueberries after tasting other kinds as well.

And the blueberries which were delish just as they were or with yoghurt.
