MARKET GARDENERS, STREET VENDORS, LOCAL SPECIALITIES OF ALL KINDS - THE THONON MARKETS (YES, THERE ARE SEVERAL!) WILL DELIGHT YOU. Markets on Monday and on Thursday in Thonon !
Fruits, vegetable, and more !
The large Thursday market brings together market gardeners, small producers and a lot of traditional local products and products from elsewhere! You will also find a large number of very varied stalls here (clothing, accessories, crafts, decoration, etc.). It extends across the ‘Rénovation de Thonon’ area. Vibrant and with traditional local products during all four seasons, including berries, soup herbs and cardoons, etc. The market is almost international as people from Switzerland like to come and look around! The Monday market is smaller with different stalls, but just as pleasant.
Arts & Crafts markets
If you are not such ‘fine food-lovers’ (which would surprise us!) you would perhaps prefer the Léman Créativ’ association market. This is an association of more than forty artisans from the Chablais region. Its aim is to promote local arts and crafts in different exhibition venues, such as Port de Rives in Thonon-les-Bains every Sunday from March to September.
To complete an article on markets, the most typical and largest market in the region must have a mention. The huge, traditional and famous Crête Fair takes place just once a year on the 1st Thursday in September.
