Easter narket in Krakow 

Seasonal markets in Krakow

Besides well-known Christmas market, a number of other temporary markets and fairs take place in Krakow every year. Usually their stalls mushroom in Rynek Glowny central square or the nearby Maly Rynek square (situated one block east from the vast main piazza of the Krakow historical center) but some markets happen elsewhere. They go on for a week or two except the Christmas market which starts in the end of November and continues throughout December. Typically, most stands sell varied arts and crafts. Also traditional foods such as bread and cured meats and sweets are on sale. The organizers often try to provide some extra attractions as well, such as live gigs and shows. The markets mostly take places repeatedly at the same time of the year and in the same place.
