Farmers' Markets in the City & Country

If you are looking for Styrian products at their finest, you will find these at the farmer's markets: the markets in the city and country are long-standing and popular among all Styrians to this day. When Styrians want to have fresh products during the week or at the weekend, they grab a basket and cycle to the nearest farmers' market.


Whether in the capital city or in the middle of the regions and villages, it's a pleasure to shop at the farmers' markets with a little chatting here and there. A recommendation for city tours: the market at Kaiser-Josef-Platz in Graz is a particularly popular farmers' market. It is open almost daily and is the largest and oldest farmers' market in Graz. Abundant icing-coated or spicy-savoury delicacies line up next to creative flower arrangements and other regional products here. In addition to this farmers' market, many other markets in the Green Heart of Austria sweeten the day. From the Schladming farmers' market in the north to the Leibnitz farmers' market in the south, Styria is proud of its fresh regional treats.

It is not just the taste of farmer's butter that is so special, but in particular the impression of flowers that it gets from its wooden form. It's a delight for the palate on crisp coarse rye bread. This and many other regional products can be purchased at the farmers' markets in the middle of thermal springs country, such as in Feldbach or at the Vulkanland market in Bad Gleichenberg.
