Shopping in Poland


Shopping in Poland can be a delightful experience, as the country offers a variety of options ranging from traditional markets to modern shopping centres. 

Poland has numerous modern shopping centres, especially in larger cities like Warsaw, Krakow, Wrocław, and Gdańsk. Some popular ones include Złote Tarasy in Warsaw, Galeria Krakowska in Krakow, and Arkadia in Warsaw. These centres host various international and local brands, entertainment options and dining facilities.

Poland has emerged as a flourishing and high-powered country in northern Europe between Germany and the former Russian states of Belarus and Ukraine. Poland’s manufacturing history dates back to the past and is still regarded as the producing powerhouse for central and Eastern Europe. It is also flourishing as a commercial and retail centre, luring top brands, with numerous Polish factory outlets emerging,

Traditional outdoor markets are a great way to experience local culture and find unique products. Famous examples are the Hala Mirowska in Warsaw and the Stary Kleparz in Krakow. You can purchase fresh produce, meats, cheeses, and other local products here. The best market to visit in Poland is the Plac Nowy Flea Market, often called the Jewish Market due to its location in Krakow’s Jewish Quarter. This market has been one of the longest-running, dating back to 1808. The best time to visit this market is on Saturday mornings. The market is packed with around 300 stalls selling items from antiques, vintage cameras, books, clothing, and crafts.  

Zapiekanka is a toasted open-face sandwich made by using a sliced baguette which is then topped with sautéed mushrooms and cheese and then Served hot with ketchup; it has been a popular street food in Poland since the 1970s. Consider Polish pottery, Amber jewellery, traditional Polish wooden crafts, and regional foods like sausages and flavoured vodkas when shopping for souvenirs.

In Poland, shopping hours can vary depending on the shop size and location. During the week, larger shopping centres are generally open from 10 a.m to 9 m.
