Luxembourg towns and villages invite you to discover their markets. In the morning or throughout the day, squares abound with stalls with local produce, second-hand items and antiques. Come and see the wide range of fresh produce or find treasures amidst the items sold at the markets of Luxembourg.
Fresh food markets
Seasonal fruit, fresh vegetables, local meat - Luxembourg's fresh food markets are mouth-watering. Luxembourg's fresh markets offer an extensive range of produce locally sourced in the country and from further afield. These products are very popular in Luxembourg because of their quality, and you are welcome to visit one of the weekly markets to find it out for yourself.
One of the most popular fresh produce markets is the Stater Maart, which traditionally took place on Place Guillaume II and Place de Paris in Luxembourg City. Due to the redevelopment of the Place Guillaume II, the market has moved to the Place Hamilius and its surroundings since January 2021, for an estimated period of two to three years. The market will continue to be held on Wednesdays and Saturdays from 7.30 a.m. to 2 p.m. The market offers food ranging from jam, vegetables, meat, to syrups, bread, eggs and cheese - as well as plants.
Also in Luxembourg City, the Bouneweger Maart is a small market offering regional and seasonal products in the heart of the Bonnevoie district. Since April 2021, it has taken place every Tuesday from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. on the Place Léon XIII. A real neighbourhood market, it now has a wider range of stalls: oils and jams, apple juice, honeys, wines, breads and pastries, as well as flowers and textiles.
Many other towns have their very own not-to-be-missed fresh food market once or twice a week:
- in Diekirch every Tuesday;
- in Esch-sur-Alzette on Tuesdays and Fridays;
- in Dudelange every Thursday;
- in Ettelbruck every Friday.
Aside from weekly markets, some markets take place on a monthly or bi-monthly basis in Mamer, Strassen, Hesperange, Bettembourg, Differdange, Schifflange, etc. Many places have their own market. Ask your municipal administration if you want to find out more about markets in your region.
You will find information on affiliated markets' opening hours on the website of the Lëtzebuerger Maarteverband (Luxembourg Federation of Markets).

Flea markets and antiques
Flea markets and antique stalls are always worth a visit. You will often find small dealers with delightful items and sometimes even little treasures.
The 'Antiques & Art Fair Luxembourg', which takes place every year at Luxexpo, is the largest event for antiques and second-hand items in Luxembourg, set on a surface of over 4,500m2.
Several other places - including the town of Echternach and Luxembourg City - organise their own flea markets and/or antique sales.
The Glacismaart - Luxembourg's biggest market
The Glacismaart is the biggest market in Luxembourg. The market brings together hundreds of fresh food, second-hand and textile dealers on the Glacis car park in Luxembourg-Limpertsberg. It is on every 3rd Sunday of the month from March to November (apart from August during the Schueberfouer).
Garage sales and flea markets
Luxembourg is an Aladdin's Cave for treasure hunters. Local initiatives organise many garage sales and flea markets across the country, including the famous flea market of Luxembourg City. It takes place on the 1st Sunday of the month, from May to October, on the Glacis field.
