The thoroughfare on the other side of the Vanšu bridge is a treasure trove of 19th-century wooden architecture and although many of these old edifices could use some serious renovation work, the beautiful buildings at the corner of Melnsila and Kalnciema iela have been lovingly restored and now host a bustling fair every Saturday from 10:00 - 16:00 that attracts visitors from around Riga. Although the theme changes from fair to fair, you can expect plenty of food and drink, local crafts, fashion by Latvian designers and a lively atmosphere. Take bus No.53 from the National Theatre to the Melnsila iela stop or tram No.4 from Grēcinieku iela to the Kalnciema iela stop.
Every Sat 12:00–16:00
