The impressive town hall, which serves as the administrative center for Basel-Stadt Canton, dominates the Marktplatz (market square). Vegetables, fruits, and flowers are sold directly on the square during the week.
The brightly painted town hall is the focal point of the square. Nonetheless, the locals of Basel rely on this location on a daily basis, as the market held here every weekday is a welcome addition to the central business district’s supermarkets. Numerous regional, Swiss, and international specialties are available for gourmets.
