Náplavka is situated on a riverside of Vltava. It is easily accesible, for example from our Prague apartments near Charles bridge, you can have a nice walk by the river (1,8km long) or hop on a subway and go to Karlovo náměstí. But you should be prepared for many people, because this marketplace is one of the most crowded places in Prague. Market takes place every saturday from 8am to 2pm. We have one older article about Náplavka in our blog, so you can checkt it, here is the Farmers’ Markets In Prague.
Another perfect choice is Náměstí Jiřího z Poděbrad. You will go by subway to a station Náměstí Jiřího z Poděbrad and as soon as you get out of subway, you will find yourself in a beautiful park with magnificent church in the middle. All across the park there are a lot of stands, places where you can rest, such as benches and lasoplace useful to those with children (places where kids can bake potatoes etc.). At this marketplace you can spend a whole forenoon. You can start with breakfast, then look through stands , buy some sweets to your apartment, sit on a bench for some time, just look around and get that positive atmosphere feeling, and then eat a delicious lunch. Farmers Market on Jiřího z Poděbrad take place every wednesday, thursday and friday from 8am to 6pm and on saturday from 8am to 2pm.
