A warm welcome to the Basel markets
Basel’s markets offer a unique shopping experience at the heart of the city all year long. Scores of stalls with delicacies and entertaining events make the markets a great place to linger.
The numerous city and neighbourhood markets in the market town of Basel offer a wide and diverse range of market experiences. At the weekly markets – the Stadtmarkt and Schlemmermarkt on Marktplatz, the new goods market on Barfüsserplatz, the flea markets on Barfüsserplatz and Petersplatz – as many as 462 market traders alternately offer regional and fresh products on 398 market days a year. If we also count Basel‘s neighbourhood markets – Märt am Tellplatz, the Erlenmatt Sunday flea market, St. Johannsmarkt, Matthäusmarkt, the Rütimeyerplatz Tuesday market and the Markthalle – the total number of market days rises to over 900.
A special shopping experience
At Basel’s fresh goods markets, customers are in direct contact with the market traders, many of whom produce their own goods. The products sold on Basel’s fresh good markets are healthy, organic and sustainable and largely produced in the surrounding tri-national region of Basel.
