June 19, 2018 – As we are slowly reaching mid-summer, the farmers' market is becoming fuller and more diverse, offering multiple sorts of fruits and vegetables. Now it’s time to enjoy a visit to the market.

What’s in season

It’s a berry time! Wild and cultivated, red and blue, they are juicy and full of flavor now the most. Raspberry, blackberry, blueberry – take all of them and mix them in a bowl or decorate a lovely Pavlova cake with them. A beautiful colorful addition to your breakfast, berries are a great source of vitamins and energy. If you live in Montenegro, store them in a freezer for a nice winter treat.

Figs (especially the blue ones) are just irresistible. Try them with local cheese as an appetizer.

Buy local

Among many locally produced vegetables, this sort of green pepper is very special. Middle-sized and a mild yellow-green color, the Somborka peppers have an amazing spicy taste. This sort is mainly used in local and Serbian cuisine for winter pickles. Plain or stuffed with a kind of sour cream, these peppers are something very special and typical for the southern Balkans.

5 years ago, thick stem celery was only imported from Italy. Now you can have it locally grown almost all year round.

Sunny summer treats - sweet corn finally arrived at the market. Now you can buy it cooked at the promenade kiosk without a doubt.

People say June is a bit early for melons, however, the ones coming from Ulcinj seem to be ripe and sweet.
