This Saturday we decided to go even more local, and visit the market in our town. We live in Dietikon, a suburb of Zürich surrounded by countryside and farms, and it has a farmers’ market every Wednesday and Saturday from 7am to 12pm. On Saturdays, there is a flea market too, so you can pick up your veg as well as a vintage spanner or vinyl record from the 1970s. It is much smaller than the Oerlikon market, with two fruit and vegetable sellers, a stand selling Spanish products (olive oil, wines etc.), a baker, a cheese counter, a fishmonger and an Italian food stand. You can find details about the different vendors here. Although it is small, there is still lots of choice and plenty to keep you going for a week!
This company sells high quality goods imported from Spain, such as olive oil, balsamic vinegar, wine and ham. You can also arrange to go to their place for a tasting, which I plan to arrange in the next few weeks! Their online shop is here.
After a tough morning shopping we were tempted by the sign at the Italian stand selling prosecco. It was the perfect way to end the morning… Standing in the sun, supping on some bubbles and enjoying some complimentary mortadella and bel paese cheese.
The final tally was 55CHF (not including the prosecco)…
