The French market, full of goodies such as croissants, pain au chocolat, and refreshing wine, is back at full operation on Kampa this week. The market will run from July 12 to July 17 without restrictions or limits.
Swing by whenever you have a free slot and a desire to taste the true paradise of French culture.
What is the French market in Kampa anyway?
The French Market of Kampa is an annual event celebrated by hundreds, if not thousands, of residents and visitors of Prague. People can discover various activities at the event, including the exhibitors, food caterers, talented newbies, and just plain enthusiasts inspired by French culture.
It is not a secret that organizers prepare something special for their visitors every year, and we love the effort and passion they put into it. “As every year, we hope that many of you will join us in our friendly, greedy, festive, relaxed, colorful, shady, and multilingual atmosphere of the French market on Kampa,’ said event coordinators.
This is the 15th time the French market has taken place on the lively Kampa island. It was one of the first food festivals in Prague, the pioneer of food markets if we can say so. That is why you could see some officials here, including the Mayor of Prague 1, giving public visits or even conferences on the stage.
We took a sneak peek and are thrilled to announce that everything is ready for visitors—from stands with delicious snacks to podiums and parasols where you can lean back and relax with a refreshing French wine.
Our favorite venues in French market
In 2022, roughly twenty-three exhibitors will aim to show off their French authenticity. Some of them you might already see around Prague, and some are entirely new to the market.
Which ones are a must-have to visit? That is the dilemma we will try to solve today with our foodie experience and cultural heritage. Let’s bring it on!
La Cave d’Adrien
A hidden gem of Prague 2, a cozy French wine bar, has finally made it to the French Market on Kampa. We are proud of you, pals!
You can try various French wines available for different budgets, whether you are a broke student, a successful entrepreneur, or a wine critic. Red, white, rosé—you choose!
On top of that, you could have small snacks that go perfectly with the wine selection. Cheese, jambon, and nougat—what can be better?
Le Marché: classic but timeless
Buddies from Le Marché have been around the French market for a while, and we love them to the fridge and back.
Originating from the Vinohrady district, Le Marché is full of French goodies for true foodies in Prague. The spot offers high-quality gastronomic food and delicatessen from all over France. The cider from Normandy and the wine from the South of France—Le Marché have it all.
Furthermore, you can try a variety of specials coming from local farms! For instance, cheese, cold cuts, foie gras, and even oysters. Don’t forget that they also sell fresh bread and pastries daily—a true paradise.
This spot is perfect for people obsessed with lavender, its calming effect, and its mind-blowing smell. It is also one of the gorgeous vendors we have ever met – their place is always decorated with high design and top-notch standards, making it thrilling.
Here, visitors can buy lavender products (who would have thought so, right?). Perfumes, soaps, decorations, and flowers are available for purchase.
Sometimes, the venue sells lavender lemonade, perfect for the weather wave approaching the city this week.
Admission, tickets, and the program
Admission to the French Market is free of charge. You only need to pay for the goodies—snacks and drinks.
The event is accompanied by a cultural program, perfect for adults and kids alike. To learn more about the agenda for this day, we advise you to visit the official website of the event-just here!
