La Chaux-de-Fonds is home to a magnificent market all year round. The variety of products on offer and the conviviality of the people of La Chaux-de-Fonds, the neighbouring towns and the tourists make La Chaux-de-Fonds a happy place.
Merchants are present in the market place on Wednesdays and Saturdays from 6.00 to 12.00.
With no fewer than 44 market stalls, you will find a colourful selection of food, including fruit and vegetables, meat, fish, cheese, bread and local produce.
On Wednesdays, the number of traders is lower, but they will offer you just as varied products.
During the winter period, the market is not so big. However, it is not less worth seeing. On the contrary, in winter the town has its own charm and warm atmosphere.
The right treatment and maturation can turn already excellent Swiss cheeses into a gourmet’s dream. Master fromager Rolf Beeler represents the avant-garde of a new generation of Swiss cheese experts. March through December he shares his rich knowledge about cheese at the Saturday market right next to the Chapel Bridge where he also sells his delicious creations. And if you visit us at Zürichstrasse 49 on a Saturday, you’ll find his Sbrinz, matured for four years, on our table.
Not every baker still kneads their own dough – Dani Amrein does. And the difference comes through in the taste of his huge selection of fresh, organic breads. If you’d like to try them – or simply try the best croissants in town – you can do so every Tuesday and Saturday at the market. Why not stock up for a picnic on the Rigi, one of Lucerne’s most enjoyable mountains?
