Markus market in Auer
The traditional "Markus" market in the idyllic wine town Auer in Southern South Tyrol is held every year. The market is always a big event for locals and for tourists. It exists since the 18th century and has always been held on April 25th.
At its beginnings, the market’s main purpose was the livestock trade. Nowadays you will hardly find some animals, but any other useful things you can imagine. More than 200 stalls are spread over the main square and the surrounding streets and many of them offer local delicacies.
The curious rarity hunters try their luck already at 8.30 am. After their exhausting tour they need a bracing, South Tyrolean style breakfast. At 10.00 am the so called “Frühschoppen” begins, where veal sausages, pretzels and Weißbier are served.
If you’d like to go on a comfy walk on April 25th, we recommend you to visit the traditional Markus market in Auer. There is nothing better than strolling through the stalls on a sunny day in Southern South Tyrol!
