  shopping for fresh stuff
by picek

One cannot get tired of fresh fishes. A little problem is that if you go fishing, you need to know where and when and by what... and you need a time. Plus maybe sometimes result is modest, or none at all, or you've caught something you didn't need.
Anyways, for those who like to prepare fresh fish and seafood in their own backyard - head straight to the fish market, next to vegetable and fruit market in Zadar old centre by the wall. Earliest gets the best ones, so it's worth to be there early. Later than 12 only the ugliest remain, if at all and soon after, there's nobody there anyways, just pungent smells.

What to buy: Buy any fish and seafood from the Adriatic sea, caught by local fishermen.
Zadar has the largest fish market in the wider area so the choice is great and the prices are little lowelier than in smaller towns. Worth considering if you're staying somewhere near and have chance to prepare fishes by yourself.

What to pay: Price depends on kind and size.
