What to buy in Croatia and where?
- During the year, the markets of Croatia offer excellent fruit and vegetables from small local producers. In June, cherries are typical, in summer tomatoes and peaches, and in the fall, mandarin oranges. You can find olive oil and lavender sachets everywhere.
- Many young artists sell their works in tourist areas: jewellery, pottery, watercolours, and small frame pictures. Among the crafts, the most notable is the pottery on the island of Veli Iz.
- In the Dolac market in Zagreb and in the Zagorje region it is possible to find objects made of wood and small white painted wooden toys. In Dubrovnik, there are art galleries of naive paintings in the Croatian tradition.
