In South Tyrol – and in the Val Passiria Valley – markets have a long tradition. All year round, markets are held in the villages of the valley, inviting guests to sample, enjoy and purchase local foods. Every first Saturday in the month, farmers from the valley come to the farmer’s market in San Martino to sell their fresh produce. Another fixture in the local market diary is the Village market in Rifiano from May through to October. The cattle and grocery markets in San Leonardo and San Martino are also traditional meeting places, as is also the long-established farmer’s market in Saltusio which is held on certain days each year.
