This is where I used to buy my stuff when I lived there. 'Guete bonjour' was the greeting I got. Folk brought the stuff over from their farms in Alsace to sell. Earlier, they used to tramp round the streets with their cart. Alas, I guess no more.

Re: Farmers market in Basel area ?

Marktplatz in Basel is nice, beautiful flowers and lovely seasonal stuff, as well as great Swiss cheese etc, and I love the mushroom stall, but the market in St Louis is much more easygoing and - for me personally - a more enjoyable experience. About 15 mins walk from the end of the no. 11 tram at St Louis Grenze or a dead easy bike ride. Keep your eyes peeled for adrianlondon's frequent trips for market and coffee in the events. There are a few stalls around in Tellplatz and at Heiliggeistkirche in Gundeldingen on a Saturday morning too.
