Gdansk Market Hall

Plac Dominikański 1, 80-844 Gdańsk, Poland

This 19th-century market hall is in a grand building made of brick with wrought iron details, built atop the ruins of a Dominican monastery (some of the excavations of that site can be seen in the market’s basement). While it is a few blocks beyond the heart of historic Gdansk, it’s an easy detour if you want to pick up a lunch to go sampling the best of what’s for sale from the farmers, bakers, and butchers who run the stalls here. If you are in Gdansk for only a day on a Viking cruise through the Baltic, it’s an ideal way to maximize your time in port. In the summer the scene spills out into the square in front of the market itself and offers a chance to sample the best of the seasonal bounty of cherries, berries, and other fruits.
