April 1, 2020 – Shop at Split’s famous green market online thanks to the new Facebook group Virtual Pazar Split.

Due to the coronavirus outbreak, the usually bustling outdoor markets are closed, the banks are empty, and only a few people can be found on the streets.

However, until things turn back to normal, we’ve discovered the beauty in the virtual world – and many small Croatian producers are getting the exposure they’ve never had before.

Namely, Slobodna Dalmacija writes that Pametno party member Marijana Puljak has done a great thing for both buyers and producers and sellers of fruits and vegetables at Split Pazar. Less than a week ago, she founded the Facebook group Virtual Pazar Split on Facebook, which already has over 8,000 members.

Due to the inflation of new members and offers, the group administrators introduced rules and asked everyone to adhere to them.

– We ask all sellers to include product prices with their offer in the announcements.

– Limit the number of posts to find everything you need as quickly as possible. If you need to change your bid or pricing, change your initial posts.

– This group serves to help each other overcome these difficult days, so keep decency and determination in communication with each other.

The idea, Puljak said, came from her Facebook friend Zoran Djurdjic, who pointed out to her that other cities are opening similar groups on social networks.

“We have seen that such groups work well, directly connecting small-scale producers of food production and home delivery with buyers who are mostly confined in their homes today. I searched for something similar for Split already and I couldn’t find one. In less than 48 hours, we had over 5000 members, which is a real surprise to me. It shows that a platform like this was really needed. You can find producers of fruits and vegetables, butchers, fish markets, even sellers of flower and vegetable seeds,” says Puljak.

Puljak is pleased that she can help people follow the recommendations of the Civil Protection Headquarters to stay home, but have the opportunity to purchase quality products under these conditions.

“On the other hand, this helps producers market their goods during these times. The group is completely open to everyone and we invite everyone to take this opportunity to connect. Leave your comments, as you are satisfied with the service; this is the best way to support all those who do their job excellently,” said Puljak and concluded:

“Take care of yourself altogether and use #VirtualPazarSplit.”

It should also be noted that the administrators of this group, along with Marijana Puljak, are two other members of the Pametno party Branimir Urlic and Nenad Introic. You can join the group HERE.
