At this market in the centre of Plovdiv, you can find all the different kinds of vegetables we have in Bulgaria. Also, if you need citrus fruits, you can buy them there because we import a lot of fruit from other countries.

Market places are very important and famous places for Bulgarian people. In Plovdiv, we have a huge and very interesting market.

It is about 10,000 square feet big and is situated in the centre of the city.

If you want to go shopping at the market, you do not need a car. You can use public transportation or just walk if the weather is nice. I used to live near this place, so I usually walked or rode my bicycle.

In Plovdiv, we have a huge and very interesting market. It is about 10,000 square feet big and is situated in the centre of the city.

But the most attractive things are the vegetables because we grow many different kinds of vegetables in my country.

You can see red peppers, orange carrots, green peppers, purple eggplants, red and green tomatoes, yellow lemons, and green watermelons.

I think the best time for shopping is in the morning, before the market is crowed. After five p.m., when people leave their jobs, you will see many customers talking about the products and prices.

I think that there is something romantic about this market. It is a symbol of my hometown, and I sometimes feel nostalgic about it.
