The article justifies the perception of green public procurement as a set of policies, actions and relationships with environmental contexts that emerge and shape the market for green products and services. The purpose of this study is to analyze the state of the green public procurement market in Bulgaria, to clarify the difficulties that contracting authorities (or assignors) most often encounter in the use of environmentally friendly criteria in public procurement, as well as to identify the main risks and challenges to the development of this market in the country. The regulation of the public procurement on the Bulgarian market is analyzed, the conditions for the application of the ecological criteria, stipulated in the Bulgarian law and the international directives, are specified. The status of the Bulgarian green procurement market is investigated through secondary data of the national agency and through personal interviews with Bulgarian contracting authorities. It is concluded that the Bulgarian market is at an early stage of development, has a dualistic character in terms of product affiliation and its main participants are the municipalities. The research identified some major problems on the Bulgarian market, including poor awareness of contracting authorities, lack of professional experience, budgetary constraints, the need for better organization at national level and others.
