Among Ljubljana's marketplaces, managed by the Public Company for Ljubljana's Parking Facilities and Marketplaces (hereinafter JP LPT d.o.o.), the most well-known is the LjubljanaCentral Market, which is located in the centre of the city of Ljubljana. It consists of Plečnik's covered markets with four arcades, a colonnade, and the Zvonček shop at Adamič-Lundrovo nabrežje 2-7; a covered market in the seminary building at Pogačarjev trg 1; and an outdoor market at Vodnikov trg, Pogačarjev trg, and Dolničarjeva ulica.
Markets live on their own cycles: weekly, monthly, yearly and, most importantly, daily. Every morning, vendors fill the market with a wide variety of goods, which they display on stands, sales tables, carts, and in showcases, kiosks, etc. Markets have a special charm in all seasons. In spring, when the first rays of the sun start to appear, visitors are offered the year's first vegetables and flowers. In summer, while buying fresh fruit and vegetables, visitors like to cool off in the shade with a cold drink. In autumn, everyone rushes to stock up for the winter. And in winter, when life slows down, people like to buy hams, sausages, and sauerkraut.
There is almost no produce or product that cannot be found at the market. At the market, farmers and other vendors sell all kinds of fruit and vegetables, mushrooms and forest fruits, meats and meat products, dairy products, flowers and seedlings, and medicinal herbs. In addition, the market offers woodenware and pottery, souvenirs, textiles and footwear, and various other products.
