Bulgarian Markets

Popular vegetables grown successfully in Bulgaria include tomatoes, cucumber, peppers, chillies, cabbage, onions, potatoes, carrots, radish, lettuce, pumpkin and squash. Everything here is grown organically and is full of flavour.

There is a lot of hard work and effort put into growing a good crop of these vegetables throughout the summer season, to ensure there will be a substantial amount that can be preserved to sustain Bulgarian villagers throughout the winter.

It has frequently been said to me by Bulgarians themselves how it is sometimes not worth growing your own vegetables when you can buy them so cheap from the markets. There is at this time of year such an inexpensive abundance of produce available. So for those who have transport and are able to go and buy what they need in the vast amounts, it still allows them to pickle and preserve as they would if they had grown it themselves.

If however you are not a keen gardener the end of summer markets are amazingly cheap and for those who are into canning and bottling will be having a field day right now. Bulgarian markets have an abundance of seasonal vegetables with tomatoes down to 50 stotinki per kilo, so making soups and sauces for winter dishes such as spaghetti bolognese and lasagne are incredibly cheap.
