Freshmarket is the first farmers’ marketplace in Bratislava. It is a hot place to be for those who like a concept of healthy lifestyle and of quality local ingredients. We like to spend quite some time here recently. Why is it so? What you can find here?
In all cases, get off at the bus stop “Trnavská.” From all the directions it will take you between 10-20 minutes. You will recognize the Freshmarket easily, thanks to its grey and green colors. A client centre of Ministry of Interior lies right next to it as well as a supermarket called Yeme which also offers a healthier and local alternative compared to bigger chains.
The upper floor hosts mostly restaurants and is super full during week lunch hours – people working around like to come here for their lunch, so it might be tough to find a parking spot at this time. There is also a children’s corner.
WHAT DO WE LIKE IN FRESHMARKET?
Recently we’ve had the tendency to come here several times a week and have already found our favorite places! For instance, Fertucha is a bakery offering a wide range of delicious cakes. You have to try their chocolate cake with raspberries, the chocolate brownie, poppy-seed spongecake or their carrot cakes!
Brew Bar is a place that has the best latte in town. Huge, smooth and creamy with a lot of milk and with the right temperature, so you can drink it immediately. The winery Víno Hruška has gained our like for their dealcoholized wine (no worries, they have the normal one as well) and for their grape juice.
We also enjoy shopping at Davidkovo Korenie which offers spices without added nonsense. Our recent finding is a poke place Doll Fin that offers the only authentic Hawaiian poke in Bratislava (all the other places serve “poké” in the Hawaiian style but with a Japanese twist). The owner is super funny and will turn each rigid vegan into a marinated-fish-eater.
There are around 25 eating places and over 50 shops, so you will find your favorite spot for sure:) We still have plenty to try out, too!
