Sankt Wendel is known to sponsor a variety of markets throughout the year. The city now will add a new one, the farmers’, craftsmen’s and vintners’ market starting 11 a.m. Sunday.

The city center will turn into a display window of the region. More than 120 farmers, vintners and vendors will present high quality products from the neighborhood and deliver insight into modern agriculture.

“Nowadays, customers appreciate sustainability in cultivation, transparency in buying and short transportation ways,” said Peter Klaer, Sankt Wendel’s mayor.

They will learn from exhibitors how products are being created, receive cooking tips and receive food samples. Craftsmen will demonstrate former techniques that almost were forgotten.

“I try to promote this new market in its full diversity across borders and to inspire our visitors. Our goal is to strengthen Sankt Wendel’s reputation as city of markets and to boost tourism,” said Klaer.

Gourmets will find various culinary specialties made of regional products. The market will offer fresh vegetables, fruit, meat, wurst, eggs, pasta, honey, cheese, spices, herbs, marmalades, pastries, bread, liquors, wines and juices. Also for sale will be art objects and handcrafted items.

Parking will be available in City-Garage from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. More parking spots are available in Missionshausstrasse.

Sankt Wendel is located north of Neunkirchen, in the state of Saarland.
