Outdoor Market Shopping In Vilnius

One of the nice things about living in a city with an old town is an old-fashioned weekly market. Vilnius has plenty of modern supermarkets, but buying goods from local farmers is still possible. Let's go shopping.

The market, open every Thursday afternoon, about a 10-minute walk from our apartment. How old school.

Come and get your greens, whether fresh or pickled. Agurkai!

Bread is a serious part of any Lithuanian diet, the heartier the grain, the better. The loaves weigh a ton, can be kept for weeks and require a chainsaw for cutting. Definitely not for tea sandwiches.

More colorful greens and a tray of kibins, sort of like a baked empanada.

Fresh cheese.

One more look at the bread. Ready for a slice?
