FARMER'S MARKET - VEYRIER

In Veyrier (Geneva, Switzerland) we are very lucky to have three fruit and vegetable markets a week; on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays in different spots around the commune.

My favorite one is a farmer's market situated in a barn in the middle of the greenhouse area in Les Marais de Troinex.

There, you can find a smallish, yet nice array of vegetables, fruits, homemade jams, great artisan cheeses as well meat from the Jura region (beef, sausages, porc...). There you even have the possibility to sit down at a wooden picnic table and enjoy a cup of tea with a slice of cake or tart...

A cute and practical little market that offers good products (mostly regional or Swiss) for a reasonable price!

  1. J'adore les marchés, j'y vais dès que je peux pour trouver les ingrédients du coin. C'est bon, c'est bio et bien plus équitable pour les agriculteurs du coin que les produits distribués par les grandes surfaces, alors pourquoi s'en priver!

  10. J'imagine que tu dois trouver du bon fromage suisse : du gruyère (sans les trous évidemment ;-), du bon comté au goût fruité etc... Quelle chance ! Là, je grignoterais bien un morceau de fromage, pour changer du caoutchouc proposé par les grandes surfaces...

    Bises,

  13. Farmer's markets are the best! We have such a short growing season where we live, ours is only open for a couple of months of the year. Vancouver has the big Granville Market which is lovely to go through when we are down to the coast visiting my mother though.

  32. Lucky.

    During the summer months, I go to a local farmer's market, which carries a nice variety of fruits and vegetables, but they're only open Saturday mornings. So, if I snooze, I lose.

  36. You really are lucky to have such lovely markets. We have one, and it isn't all that good. The vegetables mostly look like they fell off of a supermarket truck!
