Kalnciema Quarter Market
Every Saturday is celebrated in the Kalnciema wooden architecture quarter with a traditional market – a nice highlight for Pārdaugava residents.
Craftsmen fair at the open-air venue Egle
In the craftsmen fair at the open-air venue Egle, which is located at the Old Town right next to the Town Hall Square, you can see and buy interesting and wonderful souvenirs from Riga and Latvia, made by our craftsmen.
The key value of Čiekurkalns Market lies in its constant cooperation with Latvian farmers, offering to customers local home-grown fruits and vegetables, meat and diary products and much more.
Vidzemes or Matīsa Market
When entering Vidzemes or Matīsa Market from Brīvības Street, the first thing you see is the numerous mannequin legs with tights as if dancing the can-can. However, the first impression is misleading: the place has a slow and quiet rhythm. In the market pavilion, you can even hear the music of ringing cash registers mingling with the rhythmical sound of meat-slicing machines. Local farmers sell onion and garlic strings and freshly smoked meat.
The Āgenskalns Market building is a splendid sample of early 20th century rational Art Nouveau; it was constructed in 1911 according to the design of Riga Chief Architect Reinhold Schmaeling. The pavilion features red brick walls with white decoration, vertical windows and an ornamented chimney; the interior still bears marks from the Soviet period.
Saktas Flower Market
If you want to find Saktas Flower Market, trust your nose. Take the very beginning of Brīvības Street and turn first right (Tērbatas Street). Here your nose will smell a scent of pastries, followed by a flow of flowers. Every day the rainbow-coloured flower market right next to Vērmanes Garden Park delights passers-by and bewilders customers not knowing where to stop and what to buy.
Riga Central Market
Tourist guides in many cities are forced to explain that, “once, in this spot, there was a market!” In Riga we can proudly scratch the ‘was’ and say ‘is’! A huge one, downtown, on the banks of the Daugava.
