The Basler Market along the Marktplatz is open 6 days a week and a great place to spend a day if you would like to sample some authentic Swiss fare like croissants, steaming hot chocolate, roast chicken and of course red wine. The vendors bring out all they have for sale: clothes, boots, souvenirs, frangipaani, scented flowers, marinated olives, blue cheese, honey, fresh organic produce and even home ware. Even if you don't want to pick up anything, come here for the sheer experience as the atmosphere is matchless and truly local!
