Traditional farmers’ markets are very popular. Farmers from all over the region sell their fresh products here: fruit, vegetables, fish, meat, cheese, eggs, herbs and more. They are held at least once a week, or take place more often in many towns and suburbs.
Farmer’s markets have a long history and the towns would not be the same without them. They are more than just a place to do you grocery shopping: people of all ages like to mingle and meet at these markets. Friends, neighbours and acquaintances exchange the latest gossip over a glass of wine and some regional snacks. At the same time, they interact personally with the farmers and know where their products come from. Especially city people love their farmers’ markets: they bring a little bit of countryside to their urban homes.
Most farmers’ markets are organised by the cities and municipalities. Visit the website of your district or city to find out when and where there will be a market near you.
In addition, the Land-Partie online portal offers a search engine for Hochtaunuskreis, Main-Kinzig-Kreis, Main-Taunus-Kreis, Landkreis Offenbach, Wetteraukreis and the cities of Frankfurt and Offenbach. You can search for locations or days of the week to get the address, opening hours and brief description of all markets that match your query.
Flea markets are a special type of market: regular people sell their used goods to others at cheap prices. They are great places to find furniture, clothes, decorative items and toys – especially for children. Shopping at a flea market is a leisurely activity; many of them also offer street food stalls.
