A special shopping experience

City Market on Marktplatz

At Basel’s fresh goods markets, customers are in direct contact with the market traders, many of whom produce their own goods. The products sold on Basel’s fresh good markets are healthy, organic and sustainable and largely produced in the surrounding tri-national region of Basel.

Adjustments due to the Corona Pandemic

In all weekly and district markets, corresponding safety precautions in connection with COVID-19 will be in place. Visitors will be informed on site about the security measures prescribed by the FOPH: A distance of 1,5 metres must be maintained from other persons; only one customer per vendor may be present at the market stall and self-service is not possible at the market stalls.

In addition, the number of visitors to the individual market places is limited to one person per four square metres. Disinfectants are available for customers at the markets.

The Department of Presidential Affairs thanks the market participants for their support in implementing these measures.
