Christmas Fair in the Cetății Square

The County Board of Harghita County has been focusing on the promotion of local products for years. Several projects have been started in order to make local farmers’ quality goods more attractive and available. One of the results of these projects is the Christmas Fair on the Cetății Square held for 2 days and considered already a must-event for the locals during the Winter Holidays Season.
The aim of this Fair is to have the traditional Christmas meals on the festive tables - stuffed cabbage, sweet bread with walnut filling, meat jelly, dried sausage – prepared from local farmers’ goods. There is a rich selection of different traditional and local products, such as: meat, dairy and bakery products, honey, homemade bread and cookies, eggs, jellies, syrups, fruit juices and nectars, fresh and canned vegetables, fruits and different crafts.
Usually there is a live Nativity Scene disposed on the Cetății Square with live animals in it, to entertain the children.

Market Hall of the Local Farmers

The big food market is located in the Centre of Miercurea Ciuc. The market day of the week is on Wednesdays. On these days, the assortment is usually the richest, thus the prices are more attractive than on the other days of the week. Along the outdoor stands filled with fresh fruits and vegetables, there is also an indoor hall, where dairy and meat products are available. This indoor hall has been separated in two a few years ago and one half of the hall was turned into an exclusive market for local goods: dairies, eggs, meat, bakery products. This has become one of the favorite places for the locals, since here they can always get fresh and home taste food.
