Staré Mesto / Old Town spokesman Tomáš Halán said, as reported by the TASR newswire, that the aim is to bring back a traditional way of shopping, support community spirit and provide an opportunity for locals to meet each other. The first market was a great success, added Old Town mayor Tatiana Rosová.

The stalls will be open on Saturday, March 24, between 10:00 and 16:00. A gypsy-music band will add to the atmosphere with a live performance.
