Prague is the city of handmade items and creativity; people are very talented in making things, and creating handmade dolls, clothes, household goods, accessories; and more.. Therefore, Prague is famous for its handmade markets which are happening throughout the year in certain places and dates, but also it happens occasionally in cafes and schools.
Mint Market started as a small business a couple of years ago, which began to grow and become famous. By the end of 2016; they started a new routine for the market. It became a weekly weekend event, every Saturday, hosted in a very big hall, which used to be a stable before, but it’s now very nicely painted and decorated.

What to expect
When you go there, you’ll find all kinds of products that are unique. There are accessories, fashion, household goods, decorations, and food of course.
Expect to spend a long time there if you are planning to see each booth, which is worth it, because of the variety of products that are also generally not expensive.
However, expect the beautiful handmade jewellery to be expensive.
