They say that the shortest way to get to know a country and its people is the way to the local market. That’s why we invite you to short, yet unforgettable visit to the oldest market in Vilnius – Hales turgus! Prepare your tongue, nose and belly for a dance of the most enticing smells and flavors. Each season Hales turgus has its own face; each time it can offer you something special. But be sure that one thing never changes – everything you’ll find here is always made by locals and always made with love.
You’ll visit 4 or 5 different places. Begin in the Juice Bar, wich has been operating for nine years and is very popular among market visitors. Try a delicious fruit or vegetable cocktail and go straight to “Roots” where you’ll find the largest selection of Lithuanian handcrafted cheese in all country. Keep in mind, that all products are created according to authentic recipes and tastes cherished by Lithuanian farmers.
Then visit ”Kadagine“ (rustic meat products) – delicacies with the aroma of Lithuanian rustic smoke. This smoke will be one of the things you would like to bring home!
And for the last stop we invite you to Vilnius bagels. The bagel – a ring-shaped bread roll of unique flavor was invented and first baked by Jews living in the territory of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania. Looks like this is a great chance to visit Lithuania under one roof!
