The Annual Rueblimart in Aarau, Switzerland - November 5 2008
|The annual "RŁeblimart" (Carrot Market) is always held on the first Wednesday in November, the town of Aarau, in Switzerland. The first one was held in 1981. What a magnificent show of carrot colours, probably the best in the world!|
|The Carrot Museum visited the Rueblimart in 2008 and received a warm welcome from all the stall holders.
On the Day the town turns into Carrot wonderland and all manner of baked carrot products - carrot cakes, carrot muffins, carrot bread , carrot soup, carrot jam, carrot cheese, are on display, to sample and buy. Also tableware, cloths, musical instruments and, of course, carrots of every colour!
In fact I have never such a vast collection of all the carrot colours in one place, truly a great carrot show.

One stallholder produces a different carrot and vegetable piece of art every year. 2008 witnessed the beautiful butterfly.
And, naturally, Orange and a golf ball variety, Paris market!!
