Each year on the second Sunday in September, Berglangenbach holds its annual farmers and arts and crafts market. For the 17th year, the village that belongs to the Baumholder Union Community will be the stage for about 100 regional farmers and vendors Sunday.
“We, again, expect more than 6,000 visitors, who come to our wonderful village with only 500 habitants,” said Jessica Jung, Baumholder Union Community administration office. “They will find decorations, souvenirs, food, drinks and the special atmosphere of a summer afternoon.”
Regional farmers will offer a big variety of vegetables and fruit from the local area. The wide range of products and merchandise will include wines, schnapps, liquors, juices, bread and cakes, honey, marmalade, pumpkin products, wurst, cheese, pasta, oil and vinegar.
Artisans will present their handcrafted items, including jewelry, wooden toys, decorations, ceramics, hats, T-shirts, glass objects, artificial flower bouquets and wreaths and baskets.
Craftsmen such as smiths, turners, goldsmiths, basket makers, roofers, engravers and chainsaw carvers will demonstrate their skills.
Children can admire birds and sheep and watch a clown.
Farmers and vendors will offer all kinds of food specialties such as schwenk steaks, wuerstchen, fish broetchen, game dishes, french fries, pizza, fresh bread, icecream specialties, waffles and cakes.
“We are looking forward to welcome many visitors to the most beautiful market in this region and promise to be good hosts,” Jung said.
