Croatia: Dolac Market

Croatia: Dolac Market

I decided to end of the 2015 year with one last post about my trip to Croatia.  If you ask anyone who has travelled with me, they will all tell you that I am “obsessed” (maybe obsessed is a strong word), “love” grocery stores and markets.  Every chance I got, I was exploring and trying local food items.  The largest market in Croatia, the Dolac Market, is in Zagreb located just north of Trg Bana Jelacica (Main Square).  I spent a few hours strolling through the market and below is a collection of my best photos, I hope you enjoy!  Happy Holidays!
