Opening of farmers market in Lukovica

To soboto sem bila povabljena, da na otvoritvi prve rokovnjaške tržnice v Lukovici naredim nekaj fotografij. Vas in njena okolica imajo kar nekaj kmetij, vendar do sedaj niso imeli svoje tržnice. Koncept te tržnice je prodaja izključno kvalitetnih slovenskih izdelkov, zato tu ne bo tipičnih prodajalcev, ki dobrine kupijo drugje in jih nato pripeljejo na tržnico. Tokrat so prodajali meso, salame, zelenjavo, sadje, domačo marmelado in sokove, sir, zelišča in drugo.
Nismo pričakovali tako pozitivnega odziva in toliko prodajalcev in obiskovalcev že ob otvoritvi, ampak tu so bili, prodajali, kupovali in uživali ob kvalitetnih produktih. Bilo je prijetno in z veseljem sem naredila nekaj fotografij, čeprav se skušam ogibati fotografiranju dogodkov. To ni ravno moje področje fotografije, ampak tu in tam naredim kakšno izjemo.
Dolgoročni načrt je otvoriti tudi pokrito tržnico, ki bo delovala ne glede na vreme in letni čas, a zaenkrat bo potekala na odprtem, na glavnem trgu, vsako soboto dopoldan.
Skratka, tu je manjši izbor fotografij.

This Saturday I was asked to take some photos of the opening of farmers market in Lukovica, Slovenia. It’s a village that has many farms in the area but until now they didn’t have their own farmers market. The whole point of this market is that they plan to sell only quality Slovenian products, so there will be no typical sellers that simply buy their goods somewhere else and then bring them to the market. This time there were people selling meat, salami, vegetables, fruits, home made marmalade and juice, cheese, herbs and much more.
We didn’t really expect such positive feedback and so many farmers and visitors at the opening, but there they were, selling, buying and enjoying quality products. It was nice and I gladly took some photos, even though I try to avoid event photography. It just isn’t my type of photography, but I make an exception here and there.
Long-term plan is to also open an indoor market that will work no matter the weather or season, but for now it will only be outdoors, on a main square, every Saturday morning.
Anyway, here is a smaller selection of photos.
