Recently when I was in Lucerne, we managed to catch the weekly Saturday open-air market along the river Reuss.
I found the range of ingredients and quality of produce really inspiring. I couldn't resist trying the local Swiss cheeses, fresh seasonal fruits and deli items.
|Fresh fruit and salad goods|
|There was such a variety of vegetables and salad making ingredients|
|olives and stuffed pepperdews|
|The olives were fantastic... I took some with me to snack on for our journey to Paris|
|They have an amazing selection of meats and sausages|
|The cheeses were delicious and rich|
|All the fruits and vegetables provide such a burst of colour|
|Make sure you have enough Franks with you as they don't really have card machines|
Best of all, the atmosphere, friendliness of the people and location just made the market such a treat to wonder around and indulge. Just make sure you have enough Franks with you...
The market is open from quite early on, at least 7am until lunchtime.
