Vevey gets into the spirit of things with its summer folk market.
The lakeside town of Vevey hosts a typical fresh produce market every Tuesday and Saturday on its vast Place du Marché (it’s nice to see the square being used as intended rather than the less picturesque car park that it usually is). However on selected Saturdays in July and August the action ramps up as the Vevey folk market sets up shop. Featuring traditional crafts, alphorn players and dancers, artisan produce and – best of all – copious wine tasting stalls set up by local winegrowers, a visit to the folk market is a real experience. Dress up in your finest cantonal costume, purchase a wine tasting glass (or get it for free if your birthday happens to fall on a market day) and join in the fun.
The 2015 folk markets take place from 11 July to 29 August.
