Have you ever noticed that locals always give you the best options for things to do in their destination? So if you find yourself in the Latvian capital for a weekend, you should consider Lelde Benke‘s article from Life in Riga, where she recommends a list of best things to do, from brunch places to local markets and exhibitions.

For brunch, among others, Life in Riga recommends the following:

  • Bulka – According to Lelde Benke, an unexpected suburban gem, where brunch is best combined with a walk or cycle along the nearby Mārupīte river trail.
  • Trompete – an old highlight of Riga.
  • Innocent Cafe – possibly the first place to do brunch in Riga and still very popular.

If you are looking for a local market, you should visit the Kalnciems Quarter Market. Lelde states about it: “Saturday morning bliss on the left bank of the River Daugava. Go for organic produce, Latvian wine, handmade knitwear, jewellery and baby clothes. Enjoy the atmosphere and quality customer service! This is as upmarket as a market experience gets.”

Check out the full article here to find out more about more places to brunch, markets and exhibitions you can visit while in Riga.
