The Annual Markets around Laces and Val Martello
Traditional markets as convivial events in the Venosta Valley
The traditional markets in Val Venosta take place on specific days of the year and represent a social event for locals as well as visitors.
In the spring, a popular garden market is held in the small town of Glorenza. The “Londsprochmorkt” in Coldrano traditionally ushers in the spring in Venosta Valley on March 17. In Malles, the Georgimarkt market takes place in April as does the annual market in Laces, and the Arcades Market in June. The St. Veith market in Tarces and the traditional St. Johann market in Prato follow. Visitors should also not miss the gourmet market and the famous Palabiramarkt market in Glorenza in September.
In the autumn the market series begins with the Matthiasmarkt market in Prato allo Stelvio. The traditional Gollimorkt market in Malles takes place in October, which dates to the granting of permission by Catherine de Medici. Every year in November, the entire valley meets at the Sealamorkt, the traditional All Souls’ market (Allerseelenmarkt) held in Glorenza.
In the neighbouring town of Sluderno, the Katharinamarkt takes place. A true highlight of the upcoming Advent season is the "Licht-Düfte-Klänge" Advent market in Glorenza, but also the high Alpine Christmas Market held in Val Martello.
