Lots of people love to visit the Plainpalais Market on the Plaine de Plainpalais. That is why I knew I had to put together a post.
I finally went there on the first Wednesday and Friday of November and I’m so glad I did. It’s on from 6.30am, so I ate breakfast hurriedly and headed to the market.
I strolled through the market, stopping to check out goodies and try to find a treasure… There was an impressive assortment of manufactured items as well as regional gourmet food products and a few food trucks for those who want to enjoy a quick treat at this open-air market.
I left the market with a big smile on my face. I see why the locals and expats love this place so much. It’s a happy and relaxed get-together centred on the simple pleasures in life.

*Products on offer: Antique objects; furniture, paintings, crockery, knick-knacks, vinyls, CDs, cassettes, second-hand clothes.
