Berglangenbach, a village in the Baumholder Union Community, will hold its annual farmers and arts and crafts market Sunday.
“This is the 16th year our little village with 500 inhabitants will be the stage for about 100 regional farmers and vendors,” said Jessica Jung, of the Baumholder Union Community Administration Office. “Like in recent years, we again expect about 10,000 visitors coming to our most beautiful market.”
The Prime Minister of Rheinland-Pfalz Malu Dreyer will officially open the event at 11 a.m.
Visitors will find a big offering of fruits and vegetables from the local area. The wide range of products and merchandise will include a variety of wines, schnapps, liquors, juices, breads, cakes, honey, marmalade, wurst, cheeses, pasta, oils and vinegars. Artists will present their handcrafted items including jewelry, wooden toys, decorations, ceramics, hats, T-shirts, glass objects, artificial flower bouquets, wreaths and baskets.
Craftsmen such as smiths, turners, goldsmiths, basketmakers, roofers, engravers and chainsaw carvers will demonstrate their skills. The market will also present a vintage tractor show and animal show with farm animals. Children can enjoy pony rides or watch clown Kuni present magic skills and balloon games.
Farmers and vendors will offer a wide range of food specialties such as schwenk steaks, or pork steaks, fish specialties, game dishes, pizza, fresh bread, waffles and cakes.
Music associations from the local area will entertain the audience.
“We have about 150 volunteers, who help to make this market a success,” Jung said. “All participants hope for good weather to make this day a memorable one in a nice summer atmosphere.”
