Tokaj-Hegyalja Market, a popular artisan market held every second Sunday of the month at Disznókő, Tokaj. The market started in April 2012 and has grown to around 60 producers.The market provides the opportunity for local artisans (all from the county plus a 40km radius) to promote and sell their wares without travelling a great distance. Local craftsmen and women bring their handmade products: – cheese and meats, jams and honeys, vinegars and oils, (organic) fruits and vegetables, spelt flour and pillows, bakery goods… – pottery, soap, wooden toys, jewellery, clothes – and lots more!
This is also a showcase for locals and visitors alike to show some of the treasures available in the Tokaj Wine Region and the surrounding area, as well as their skilled creators. As all markets, it deepens links between producer and consumer, facilitates feedback and exchange of knowledge. It is playing an important role in community building too.
