Both markets are open daily from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m, and there is no entrance fee.

Free Art Friday

The only condition is that you must share the art on social media. The goal of this event is to make both the art and artist more popular, and expose them to people who are not usually into art. The event will take place at a unique and hip place called “Kavárna co hledá jméno” (“In Search for a Name Cafe”) located at Stroupeznickeho 493/10, 15000 Prague 5.
