  • The early jump on buying fresh vegetables, fruit and fish. Most of the products are local. We got a couple of species of passion fruit-bananovou, pine-Apple, Orange, lime and tomátovou. Excellent! Price 19.90 EUR/Kg Even we bought banano-pineapple, the special shape but taste great. Otherwise, the tomatoes home 1.9 EUR/kg and sweet potato. The fish are from 5-6 EUR/kg and above. Sea bass for € 7/kg, tuna steaks, wonderful 19 EUR/kg. Smaller pieces of levější. From pekářství we tasted Boca do Caco with cheese and with English, price 2EUR/SC and super baked on stone. For flowers, we're just nahledli but the whirlwind of colors will impress everyone.
