28.11.2022 Onion Market

The Zibelemärit is a traditional folk festival held on the fourth Monday of every November. Farmers from the surrounding areas head to the Swiss capital with more than 50 metric tons of onions and garlic in artistically woven braids.

When the scent of onion tarts and mulled wine wafts through the streets of Switzerland’s capital, the day of Bern’s traditional “Zibelemärit” (Onion Market) has come. Thousands of visitors get up early in the morning to stroll through the upper part of the Old City and enjoy the combination of farmer’s market and fair. The many food and goods stalls sell creatively braided onion strands, delicious onion tarts, wonderfully fragrant “Chnoblibrot” (garlic bread), steaming mulled wine and other warm beverages.

Here are our tips for all onion fans.
