The market tradition in the Venosta Valley is where the major cultures to the north and south of the Alps have traditionally come together, as far back as the medieval period and some of the annual markets have been held every year since then. In Laces
and environs, the high point of the market season is the "Londsprochmarkt" market in Coldrano
, which always takes place on 17th March and is celebrated in Coldrano, Morter
In the Martello Valley, the traditional "Michaelimarkt" market
is held on the last Saturday in September. The more recently established markets such as the Christmas market higher up on the Gentian mountain shelter (at 2,061 m) and the Culinary Tour of the lake, are also enjoyable events in the Martello Valley.
