Seasonal or organic fruit and fresh vegetables, locally farmed meat, cheeses, mouth-watering pastries, craft beers, beautiful bouquets, and the list goes on.

If your weekly shop needs a little perking up, why not try one of Luxembourg’s regular fresh produce markets? Or if you're after a bargain antique, some unusual bric-a-brac, or a bit of local art, there's also a host of flea markets that bring together artisan crafts and artworks.

In the capital.....

Head to the Stater Maart at Place Hamilius every Wednesday and Saturday for regional and seasonal produce, organic items, flowers, plants, fish, meat, bread, pastries and craft products from 7.30 until 14.00. 

There’s also a market at Bonnevoie on Place Leon XIII on Tuesday afternoons, 16.00 to 19.00. The number of stalls has increased at this market and you can pick up regional products including flowers, plants, honey and jam, wines and clothing. 

Work is now complete at Place de Paris and the regular market has returned on Thursdays from 7.30 to 14.00. 

Glacismaart is the mother of all markets in Luxembourg, bringing together hundreds of fresh food stalls, second-hand and clothing dealers as well as household items, flowers and plants, and traditional flea market fare. It takes place on the third Sunday of the month from March to November (except August) and you’ll find the dates here.  If the Glacis car park is closed or occupied, the market moves to August Laurent Square in the parking area of the Victor Hugo Hall in Limpertsberg.

Looking for a hidden treasure to brighten up your home? Look no further than the second-hand flea market every second and fourth Saturday of the month in Place D’Armes which starts again on 11 March and runs from 8.00 until 18.00. You can enjoy live music performances as you browse. There’s also an attic sale (vide-grenier) market at Glacis on the first Sunday of the month from April to October. You’ll find the dates here.

Trinkets, curiosities, antiques and collectables are all on offer from The Federation of Antique Dealers who organises the fairs or stalls at markets across Luxembourg from January to September. Dates and locations for the 2023 season can be found here.  The Federation also hosts fairs selling antiques and bric-a-brac at LuxExpo the Box, covering a space of 3,200m², whilst from 27 to 30 January the is hosting an Antiques and Art Fair at the same venue. 

The Octave market has its origins in the religious holiday to honour the Virgin Mary who is also a patroness of Luxembourg City. It takes place annually before Pentecost (in April/May) and was originally a chance for fasting pilgrims from rural areas to take advantage of the shopping opportunities in the big city. Thousands of visitors come for the festival-cum-market each year which ends with a procession. You can find more information about dates and times here

Luxembourg has a long history of “brocante” and you can find more (in French and German) here.

The bohemian Grund quarter holds an art marketKonscht am Gronn – on the first Sunday of the month from May to October from 10.00 to 18.00, while you’ll find a vinyl record fair (also DVDs and CDs) held at Rotondes, this year on 26 March, in addition to the regular street food markets they host.
