Sustainable food trends with Prague’s farmer’s markets
With the onset of spring, farmers have again been setting up shop on city squares throughout Prague, boasting another season of fresh, local produce. This move toward fresh and local seems to mark a new trend in Czech food culture. While the “eating local” may be old news in places farther west, Czechs have only come to seek local food products en mass in the past few years. The farmers’ markets, which began as bi-monthly events, in some key locations have turned into highly popular weekly or even twice-a-week affairs. The markets have brought lower prices and a subsequent jump in consumer demand.
