A couple of blocks north of the Westin where we stayed we found a huge food and flower market located inside and around two art nouveau market halls, anything and everything you'd want to eat can be found here. There's a traditional supermarket in the center of it but the fun part is walking around to all the different vendors and buying their specialty-bread, pastries, fresh meat, vegetables, fruits, eggs. Obviously, the market is more for locals than tourists but we were able to find provisions for breakfast and for lunch on the plane ride home, avoiding the $30US breakfast charge at the Westin and the nasty lunch served on LOT. If you have a sweet tooth, be sure to find one of the many bakeries and try a Polish specialty and reportedly the Pope's favorite dessert, kremowka, which is very similar to a napoleon.

The flower market is also quite extensive, both cut flowers and flowers to plant.
