The Merano Market takes place every saturday starting from March 30 to October 26, 2024.

Held under the motto "Local by nature", the Merano Market successfully brings together agriculture, traditional crafts, tourism and local urban life.

The Merano market is a weekly attraction dedicated to regionalism and sustainability.

At the Merano Market you can find natura and handicraft products grown or made exclusively in South Tyrol. The market stalls were designed by Martino Gamper, an internationally renowned designer of Merano origin who established himself in London, winner of the "Icon Awards Designer of the Year 2014".

The Merano Market provides locals and guests with a new, highly attractive shopping experience. It is set apart by the following features:

Local products
Only locally grown or handcrafted goods may be sold at the Merano Market. The market actively encourages farmer-to-consumer direct marketing. The range of goods on sale at the Market Market includes seasonal farm products, smoked bacon (Speck) and meat specialities, wild berries, wine, spirits and bread. Handcrafted items made of wool and felt, lace and jewelry, glass objects, and aromatic herbs.

Seasonal variety
A section of the market is reserved for infrequent market vendors next to the stalls for regular vendors (those present every market day). This ensures a diversity and variety of products which change depending on the season and the individual’s rate of production.
The stall holders’ selection by a specially appointed committee was based on a set of criteria defined in the market guidelines. Regular controls and assessments will ensure a high level of quality.

The market stalls were designed by Martino Gamper, a designer born and raised in Merano, who has since made a name for himself internationally – in 2014 he was named “Icon Awards Designer of the Year”. His design concept for the Merano Market creates a dialogue between an urban context and South Tyrolean traditions.
