The monastery market idea has its origins in Bludenz. In the meantime, there are monastery markets all over Europe, all of which follow the Bludenz model. The Bludenzer monastery market is absolutely unique and is now known far beyond Austria.
Already on Thursday evening, 06. September at 19 o'clock find the market participants and the population to get in the mood for a festive service in the Franciscan monastery. Afterwards everyone is invited to the agape in the monastery garden.
On Friday, 07. and Saturday, 08. September the representatives of the participating monasteries from Austria, Germany, France, Poland and Belarus will meet in the old town of Bludenz to present their own products and offers. The Bludenzer monastery market not only focuses on selling and buying, but has become a meeting place for many people interested in monastic life. It is not the religious content, but the importance of the monasteries and their businesses that are in the foreground.
The market extends over the entire old town. The product range is just as diverse as the monasteries themselves. There are wines, liqueurs and beers from our own production, as well as cheeses, breads, jams and honey. But also wooden toys, ceramics, upholstery, ointments, candles and cloths as well as bags and jewelery are offered for sale. Almost everything is lovingly crafted by the sisters and fathers themselves. The gastronomic products are all also available for tasting.
The market will be officially opened on Friday, 7th September at 10:00am. Then the bread is broken and wine is served. The market is then open until 19:00pm. On Saturdays, the market is open from 09:00am to 16:00pm.
