The Country Markets of Starchiojd

Each Sunday morning at the entrance to Starchiojd, one sees a large, bustling marketplace where the peasants of the entire valley come to sell or buy grain, animals and other foodstuffs.

You have to choose: go to the market or accompany us to the Orthodox church for the recitation of the Office. It is also possible to go to both. After visiting the market, you can join us at the church.


For Romanians, the most versatile and economic products are the animals!


Your children will enjoy seeing them, and perhaps will try to persuade you to purchase one for them!

A rooster to be sold!

Corn is the most consumed produce by the animals, but it is also useful for us. With the 'malai' (maize flour), we cook 'mamaliga' (hominy), used instead of bread.
