Market place Zadvarje

We took a half day trip to traditional Croatian home producer market in Zadvarje.

This market is organised every Tuesday throughout the year. This is one of the most interesting markets we ever visited.

Decided to go early in the morning we choose to drive on the highway, because this is the fast and easy option from the campsite to Zadvarje, the ride lasted approx. 15 minutes. There is also another option we we did on our way back. We took the local road from Zadvarje to Šestanovac - Zagvozd. The drive lasted approx. 30 minutes and the road was really good (we used this road again for our day trips).

We arrived in Zadvarje around 08:00 and this was a great time because it wasn’t crowded at all. Parked our car on the side of the road (this is what everybody is doing so we did the same), close to INA gas station.

We started with a cup of good coffee and local sweet – fritule. Btw. we loved Croatian food. In this market we had lunch, we got to choose between wide variety of fresh meat, fish, cheese, eggs, seasonal herbs, olives, fruits (depending on season you can find different fruits like: cherries, strawberries, peach, apricots, figs, honey melon, watermelon, grapes, plums, tangerines, pomegranates directly from fields. Taste is amazing. We tasted “Puževi na gradele” (grilled snails) here for the first time. We also tasted traditionally made lamb. It was possible to buy smaller or bigger pieces. It was so good.

You can also find olive oil, homemade vine, rakija (rakija is local snaps) and other goods to take home or buy as souvenirs.

After coffee we took a slow walk between the stands and different products. You can see and buy so many things there).

We met interesting local people who are producing handmade tools and other stuff from iron and wood. Many people are selling antique things there. There is separated area where local farmers are changing and selling animals like cows, seeps, lambs, chickens, goats, ducks and others. This is morning market; we decide to go after 13:00 because we saw all of the products and tasted almost all food there☺. So we walked about 5 minutes to the “Vidikovac Križ”( you can also drive to get here, it’s on the main road, there are 4 parking places). It is really nice viewpoint from where you can see Cetina river canyon. It is worth to see it. After viewpoint we went back to our car and drove to Gubavica waterfall. We followed the signs from the main road (close to the place we parked our car). There is also a small viewpoint from where you can see the flow of Cetina River and waterfall. You can park the car here, there is enough free places.

We had such a great time, we forgot to take photos, so photos we pasted here are taken from Internet.
