Lausanne markets

Lausanne - Manifestations

Every Wednesday and Saturday, the centre of Lausanne is full of stands displaying fruit and vegetables, cheese, flowers, typical dishes and traditional cuisine, and a Mediterranean atmosphere fills the pedestrian streets. Don’t miss it!

Every Wednesday and Saturday, keen sellers and relaxed buyers create a lively atmosphere in Lausanne’s pedestrian streets.

Antique dealers, butchers, cheese-makers and market gardeners gather in a Mediterranean atmosphere on the Place de la Riponne. The heart of the Lausanne market, the Place de la Palud is full of the scent of spices and wild flowers. Here, locals meet to while away the time and share a coffee on one of the terraces. Stands with local beers, organic products and seasonal fruit and vegetables line the sloping streets of St-François and Rue de Bourg for passers-by to enjoy.

From 8 a.m. to 2.30 p.m., locals come and stock up on fresh and organic products, while tourists enjoy sampling typical dishes or local beverages.

A flea market (Place Chauderon), a craft market (Place de la Palud) and a Christmas market (Place de la Riponne).
