Street Markets

The street markets were so interesting in Prague. I think it's because they're kind of an rare and usually only on weekends around here, to have them set up every day of the week was fun. I'm pretty sure they were only up every day because it was the end of their Easter celebrations, but either way, we enjoyed looking at all the stuff. Some of it was very touristy, and other parts super practical and local (like the fruits and vegetables). 

The candy booth was definitely a favorite of ours!  We ate our $20 worth of candy all week long :)

This clock should have it's own post complete with story but for now, these clocks are fashioned after a really cool, one-of-a-kind super old clock in downtown.

 It was so cool that entire streets were just closed off so that markets could be set up like this.

Overall, the markets were a great part of our experience with the fantastic city of Praha!

You're right... the markets in Wenceslas Square and Old Town Square were just there because of the holiday. However, the market on the "closed off" street where we bought the scarves and tried to avoid the cackling witches is open year round.

p.s. I love our faces in the candy eating photo. And we still have some of our candy!
