Five of the World’s Best Farmer’s Markets

Monday May 9, 2016

Depending on where we go or what we are doing, a lot of us indulge in way too much junk food during vacation. Luckily, summer is quickly approaching in most parts of the world, and this means farmer’s markets abound! Attending a market is the perfect way to enjoy fresh food while supporting the local economy of the city you are visiting. And don’t worry, you will still be able to satiate your sweet tooth at most of them, too.

Mercado De La Merced – Mexico City, Mexico

This south of the border market is nothing short of huge. Taking up more than four whole blocks, La Merced offers up treats from all over the country. Stuff yourself with regional fare, splurge on some delectable guavas, and lose yourself in the aroma of sweet Mexican vanilla. This is also the perfect place to pick up a souvenir or two from local artists and crafters.

The English Market – Cork, Ireland

If you are a cheese connoisseur, then the English Market is the place to be. Not only will you have a wide variety of both cow and goat cheeses to choose from, you can sample other famous English and Irish cuisine, like boiled tripe and blood sausage. However, this market is not limited to just regional delicacies, and the rows and rows of Moroccan spices promise to entice your taste buds.

Saxe Breteuil – Paris, France

Saxe Breteuil is widely considered to be Paris’ most beautiful market. After strolling through rows of fresh baked breads, bright red, freshly picked strawberries and fragrant flowers with a breathtaking view of the Eiffel Tower all the while, you will tend to agree. Rain or shine, this market takes place every Thursday and Saturday, and is the perfect location for sampling fresh produce and the baked good the French are so well known for.

Bolzano Market – Bolzano, Italy

One of the best things about the plethora of markets in Bolzano is they practically run year round. The scent of roasted chestnuts wafts throughout the city, enticing all who wander near the market. Once you are there, you will find the sweetest lemons, tomatoes warmed by the sun, local cheeses and cured meats, and this barely scratches the surface. Everyone knows that Italians know how to do food right!

Carmel Market – Tel Aviv, Israel

This is one of the most sought after locations in all of Israel. Its reputation precedes it, and the Carmel Market will not disappoint those who make the journey. The sheer number and variety of olives alone is reason enough to stop here, but you will also find juicy pears, plump tomatoes, freshly caught fish, and colorful flowers. You can also find a wide variety or wares, ranging from pottery to textiles, so you can bring home something to always remember your trip by.

Your palate and your wallet will be pleased when you book a cheap car rental in Israel, Italy, Ireland, France, or Mexico with Kemwel.

I absolutely LOVE farmer’s markets and they are often the highlight of my trip.

In fact, that’s one of the most wonderful things I remember about Rome. We happened to be there on a day when they had an organic farmers’ market and the culinary treats we tasted were unforgettable!

You’re making me want to go back to Italy AGAIN. I can really close my eyes with your post – after I read it of course – and be right there! Lovely writing.

While I was reading your post a thought occurred to me; “OMG, why hadn’t I ever thought about that as a option, I love farmers markets and all that they have and represent” So with that said, that is now on my to do list wherever I go on vacation.
