The first weekly market took place in Harburg in 1612. 400 years later it is still indispensable. Six days a week - every Monday to Saturday from 8.00 a.m. to 1.30 p.m. numerous visitors stroll along the market stalls. Vegetables and fruit stands, meat, cheese or fish sales - in Harburg you can do your week's shopping comfortably. If you need even more choice, you might find flowers, spices or clothes. Or how about a bowl of fresh crabs to wash yourself?
The stand owners are cordial and available for any conversation. Often they have known their visitors for several years and ask about the family. Even first-time visitors get a pleasant feeling of community and joy.
Every Wednesday the Biowochenmarkt takes place here from 15.00-18.00. But also on other days numerous seasonal and regional products are offered. Organic meat or fish from species-appropriate fisheries can be found, as well as goods produced directly by the producer.
Because of reconstruction measures the Harburger weekly market takes place momentarily on the city hall place. At the end of the year it is to resume its original location on the sand and shine in new splendour with more accessibility.
