Fresh Fruit / Veg Market in Zurich

Hi,

Arrived in Zurich very recently. Currently staying in oerlinkon in fully serviced apartment.

Wondering if there are any fresh fruit/veg markets around in Zurich.It would be good to get some of this stuff.

Also, in the UK we have car boot sales - anything like that in Zurich.

Any help would be much appreciated.

thanks

Buerkliplatz is Friday, you must be thinking of Oerlikon on Saturday...

Here's a link which should help you find the area markets, OP.

No, this one that I just ran past on my morning route...

Unless I was hallucinating, there was fresh produce and stuff like cheeses on offer as well as the car boot type stuff which she was also looking for.

There used to be, and may still be, a Saturday morning market in the square in Oerlikon, right next to the Swiss Hotel.

Re: Fresh Fruit / Veg Market in Zurich

The Swiss don't really do car boot sales. The flea markets are the closest you'll find, but by no means the same model. Sometimes villages hold their own local equivalents, but publicity for these will rarely spread beyond word of mouth or, at best, the local newspaper.
