Fehring Earth Market – Fehring Markt der Erde

Nestled amidst the picturesque landscapes of Eastern Styria’s thermal and volcanic region, the Fehring Earth Market pulsates with life every week. Located around the historic St. Mary’s Column in the heart of Fehring’s main square, the market seamlessly blends with the surrounding shops, cafes, and inns, creating a vibrant community hub.

Since June 2024, the market has become part of the Slow Food Earth Market network. In fact, the Fehring Earth Market has always taken an approach that goes beyond mere buying and selling by valuing the opportunity to come into direct contact with producers. These come from a radius of 30 kilometres, guaranteeing maximum freshness and quality. This direct connection between consumer and producer fosters a deeper understanding of the food system and enables consumers to make informed choices. The Fehring Market, supported by the municipality, is thus a platform that brings together the best organic and sustainable offerings of the region under one roof. An effective expression of the richness of their land.

The Fehring Earth Market offers more than just a static shopping experience. A lively program of events keeps the market buzzing throughout the year. From Easter celebrations to harvest festivals and Christmas markets, there’s always something new to discover. Sustainability is a core value. The organizers are committed to minimizing waste and achieving a plastic-free market by 2025. Initiatives like the “Schad’drum’Sackerl” program, offering a second life to surplus produce, demonstrate their dedication to environmental responsibility.

The Fehring Earth Market boasts a wide range of vendors offering a delectable selection of local products, with the focus on fresh, seasonal bounty grown and produced using sustainable practices. With almost 20 producers, the market offers organic vegetables and preserves, locally-raised, organic meat and poultry, freshly baked bread and pastries, organic honey and bee products, seasonal fruits and herbs, but also unique offerings like seedings, tofu, and healthy energy balls.

The Fehring Earth Market serves as a gateway to explore the beauty of Eastern Styria. Situated at the crossroads of the Thermenland and Klöcher Wine Routes, Fehring offers easy access to stunning landscapes, charming towns, and a plethora of tourist attractions. Is a must-visit for anyone seeking a vibrant community that celebrates local and sustainable produce.
