“Heugabel Tage” in Alta Pusteria

Developed as a way to celebrate the spirit of farming and traditional craftsmanship, this event also serves to usher in the autumn.  2012 will mark the 11th “Heugabel” Farmers’ and Craftsmen’s Market, a seasonal festival that honors the gifts that nature has bestowed on us.  The event takes place in the market town of San Candido, one of the oldest in all of South Tyrol, where traditional farming has always been a way of life.  From the 1st of September through the 16th visitors can enjoy a variety of activities and events, including a Farmers’ Market on the Piazza del Magistrato/Pflegplatz square where local farmers peddle their delicious home-grown produce.  It’s a fabulous way to celebrate and embrace the past and what made this area what it is today.
