A classic Polish outdoor market is a must-experience once you are in the country. Fresh fruits, vegetables, fish and fabrics are for sale here and presented under red and white striped awnings.
Although Katowice may not exactly be a shopping Mecca, there are quite a few places one may head in search for local specialties. One of the several wine shops around town are good for sampling local drinks, the Wawel chocolate factory outlet will please those with a sweet tooth, and the famous Bolesławiecka pottery at Dyrekcyjna 4 makes for great gifts and souvenirs. One ultra-trendy store not to be missed by savvy shoppers is the incredibly stylish Geszeft, selling unique designs of clothing, accessories, and stationery.
