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.
