thinking to participate in September Handwerkermaerit in Bern. Any ideas?

hello everyone: ))

I am thinking to join September handmade market in Bern, with my handmade creations & gift ideas.

Would highly appreciate if you share your opinions:


- is this market popular, would there be many people? So that there's at least chance to return the investment in market place & travelling?: )))


- is September a good time for such an idea? (weather conditions, number of visitors)



I've never been to Bern before, so any feedback is highly appreciated.

By the way, if you plan to visit this market or if you know any popular handmade markets, especially aroung Geneva, please let me know.


thank you: )))

Re: thinking to participate in September Handwerkermaerit in Bern. Any ideas?

- Yes!! It is very popular (center of old town)
- September is a perfect time : people back from summer holiday, and still a lot of tourists, dry and nice weather....but
- The challenge could be to motivate visitors to buy in advance some gift for Christmas or the cold season.

Otherwise a nice experience!

If you're not sure: go and have a look in September, then register for the Weihnachtsmärit (Christmasmarket)!

Welcome to Berne!

There is also the Onion Market in November.

Zibelemärit (Onion Market) Bern

Quote:
Onion Market (Zibelemärit)
The "Zibelemärit" (Onion Market) is a traditional folk festival held on the fourth Monday of every November. Farmers from the surrounding area bring over 50 tons of onions – artistically woven into braids – to the federal capital, along with garlic. Colorful market stalls offer ceramic pots, vegetables, traditional market goodies and mementos. To help resist the winter cold, don't miss the Glühwein stand with its hot mulled wine.

The bustle gets underway at 5:00 a.m. as hundreds of visitors from home and abroad flood the city. This is the day when savory cheese tarts, onion tarts and onion soup are on offer in all the restaurants, filling the air with a heady aroma. Younger visitors scatter confetti in the streets and have fun at the fairground.

The next Zibelemärit will take place on November 26, 2012.
