Traditional farmer's markets
and annual markets
have been held without interruption for many centuries in the Venosta Valley. Natural groceries and traditional specialties – these are the products you will find in South Tyrolean markets: from old-style marmalade and organic bread, traditional smoked ham
, sausages, pasture cheese
and herbal teas to fresh asparagus
or organic farm-grown eggs.
On particular days, the traditional markets also become social events: on 2 November the Allerseelenmarkt market
takes place in the small medieval town of Glorenza/Glurns
, in mid-June the St. Johann market
is held in Prato/Prad
, in mid-October there is the Gollimorkt market in Malles/Mals
and at the end of November the Katharina market in Sluderno/Schluderns
takes place with a colorful array of goods, culinary products, music and events. The main focus is always on social interaction.
