Zagreb’s Beloved Dolac Market Begins Working, Here Are The Rules

Lauren Simmonds

As Poslovni Dnevnik writes on the 8th of April, 2020, in addition to the much loved Dolac market located in the very heart of Zagreb, the markets in Kvatrić, Trešnjevka, Špansko, Prečko, Jarun, Gajnice and Utrina will also be opened.

Zagreb’s popular Dolac market has begun operations today, with all the measures required to reduce the spread of coronavirus firmly in place. Ten ”cottages” have been set up on Dolac market from which Croatian OPGs are selling their fresh local products, and benches are set up, which have been placed five metres apart.

Customers can then come and buy what they need from the sellers in limited numbers with mandatory hand disinfection in place, with a maximum of one hundred people being allowed to be there, writes Vecernji list.

As previously mentioned, in addition to Dolac market, there will also be other popular Zagreb markets open in Kvatrić, Trešnjevka, Špansko, Prečko, Jarun, Gajnice and Utrina. The new cottages from which Croatian producers will sell their products will be open from 08:00 to 13:00, where the marketplaces are operating outside, while closed markets will allow for sales to take place from the benches.

On Kvatrić market, OPGs will sell their products from six cottages, on Trešnjevka market, from five cottages, and in Špansko, from two cottages, and everything will be done under the principle of cottage – one OPG.

The Green Market is becoming a drive-in. Vertical and horizontal signage has been installed, cars will enter through the carriageway, and sellers will be to the left and to the right. In front of them will be a ”showroom” of sorts with their products on display already packed, and in each box will be what they have pre-prepared, that is, what they currently have in their gardens.

When the buyer chooses a product or products he wishes to purchase, he will turn off from the lane, and the seller, who will be three metres away from the buyer at all times, will pack the package into the boot or place it on the back seat of the buyer’s car.
