Saturday Morning Organic Market at the Mall

Panorama is one of 5 malls in Vilnius and every Saturday it hosts a small farmers' market that offers fruits, meats, vegetables, honey, and herbs from local sources. Local organic produce is not difficult to find in this country full on family owned gardens and farms. There are six farmers' markets in Vilnius which offers seasonal products. The variety of apples and flavors are extraordinary. Honey production has a deep history and the varieties and quality is outstanding... some of the best I have tasted. My neighbor brought me pumpkin, beets, onions, apples, and honey from their parent's garden. Gardens provide an enormous amount of Lithuanian's food, especially with the recent sky-rocketing prices of food over the last several years.
