Zurich has a long tradition of weekly markets, which are popular meeting places for epicureans. Their varied offerings, usually going beyond food products, leave little to be desired. In addition to classic market stalls with fresh fruit and vegetables from the region, meat, fish, cheese and other dairy products, there is also a respectable delicatessen range. Enjoy seasonal delicacies directly from the producer and be inspired by the hustle and bustle of these markets.
