Vasileostrovsky Market brings together those who created this recognizable gastronomic portrait of the Northern Palmira and residents from Moscow, who have had great success there. Creators of this project did the impossible – resolved the everlasting feud between the two capitals: 25 restaurant concepts from cities so different in their character, wonderfully complement each other here.
They say to better understand the culture of a country one should visit a local market. Many travelers say that local goods they see at Vasileostrovsky Market give a glimpse into gastronomic secrets of our culture, and the unique atmosphere lets them feel a little bit like a Petersburgian.
We know how you can fall in love and feel the magic of the City of White Nights. Almost everyone living here has been late for bridges at least once, unintentionally but gladly had to walk up and down the river embankments and come morning would rush to the market to buy freshly baked bread and an aromatic sausage to go with it. So as a visitor you too, should at least once be late for bridges during the white nights and start your day at the Vasileostrovsky Market!
