Revival of Local Farmers’ Markets: Ljubljana Urban Region

9 Apr 2021

Case Study

               TThe population across Slovenia, but particularly in Ljubljana Urban Region has become increasingly urban, at least in lifestyle. The areas surrounding Ljubljana are now affected by a marked suburbanization. Many inhabitants of Ljubljana moved out to smaller
towns or rural areas within commuting range (typically up to 45 min drive) with more affordable costs of living, bringing more urban lifestyle with them. In Slovenia, locally produced food is highly valued, thus these population and spatial settlement trends along with increased health awareness have led to an increased demand for diverse locally produced food. As Farmers’ Markets provide such an opportunity, there has been a trend across the region to establish (or bring back) the Farmers’ Markets.
