Frau Gerold’s MaiMarkt is a great place to rummage for treasure and soak up early summer in the city.
Frau Gerolds Garten in Zurich’s trendy industrial MaiMarkt is a mixture of flea market, new goods and designer stuff that takes place on Saturdays (and one Sunday). Stalls are set up between the shabby-chic shipping containers and ateliers that constitute the hip hangout. This is what spring afternoons in the city are made of, with bunting and balloons strung between the trees and the cheerful sounds of visitors browsing the wares and haggling. Although sunshine can’t be guaranteed, bad weather isn’t likely to be an issue – the market is cancelled in case of rain, so check with the organisers on the day.
