Want to get a taste of the best of Međimurje? A brand new and totally unique shop in the continental Croatian town of Čakovec has recently been opened on Eugen Kvaternik Square (Trg) 5. The new sales space is called “Međimurski Štacun”.
As Poslovni Dnevnik writes on the 19th of July, 2019, the new store is a pleasant and charming Croatian shop, which boasts some agricultural-food products of about twenty local farmers in Međimurje on its shelves, writes Robert Radovic, with Zlatko Vrzan having taken photos for the local Međimurje portal Međimurske novine. They will offer over 150 types of seasonal products directly with local OPGs throughout the whole year.
This praiseworthy initiative which celebrates all things Međimurje was realised thanks to Valentina Hažić, the first president of the “Best of Međimurje” association, and all those who have been more than willing to place and sell their own products directly with their names and surnames proudly displayed on them.
These are OPG Hažić from Jurovčak, OPG Trupković from Novo Selo Rok, the Tomšić winery from Železna Gora, OPG Zadravec from Oporovac, OPG Biber from Podturen, the Preiner winery from Sveti Urban, OPG Lovrenčić from Palovac, and others. Other local Međimurje producers have also been invited to join this initiative.
Valentina, who has been in this field for a long time, recently opened her own company for business consulting and services in agriculture and tourism – AgroTina, which was incubated in the newly-restored attic of the TICM1 building. At the opening she said:
“Međimurski Štacun” is the first store of its kind in Croatia. It was completely sorted out by the producers themselves and this is the first organised supply chain in all of Croatia. We’d also like to thank Medjimurje County for supporting us in order for us to be able to open this store. In the store, we have products bearing the traceability mark of the product called ”Najbolje ‘z Međimurja” (the best from Međimurje).
County Prefect Matija Posavec was present on the occasion of the opening of the stop, and emphasised the fact that these projects were a great opportunity to promote local producers and their healthy products, and invited customers to come and buy products there in order to support to domestic OPGs.
This brand new Međimurje store will work on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays from 10:00 to 18:00 and on Saturdays from 08:00 to 14:00. On Sundays and Mondays, the store will be closed.
