Kalnciema iela Market

Kalnciema iela Market

The farmers' market at the intersection of Kalnciema iela and Melnsila iela provides Rigans with a much-appreciated alternative to standard supermarket fare. 80-140 merchants take part in an average market day, selling their wares in the gentle shade of the courtyard's apple trees. Some of the favourite products include bread baked on maple leaves from Atis' bakery in the town of Vecpiebalga and Jānis Joma's dairy products. A recent addition is the persuasive Jānis Burba, who can sell a large piece of halva to nearly anyone.
Some market days have a special theme, including decorations and musical entertainment. For example, an Italian market takes place in autumn and a Lithuanian market takes place in the spring. The Kalnciema iela Market also organises special events for children and to mark the traditional Latvian holidays. In warmer weather the market grounds are used for concerts by local musicians and as an open-air cinema. Also, see what's new in the art scene at the Kalnciema kvartāls (Kalnciems Quarter) gallery.
