Traditional Martisor Fair

The traditional Romanian “Martisor” feast is welcomed as gleefully, every spring. Over 300 traditional artisans, visual artists and students are expected to display their works at the Martisor Fair, starting today and running until March 1, at the Romanian Peasant’s Museum. Assorted “Martisor” gifts are on offer this spring: traditional ones from Bukovina or Bistrita, surrealist or fit for the crisis, trendy, emo or catchy ones.
Gastronomic “Martisor” gifts are also on the menu: sweetbread, comfitures, zakuska, plum jam, kürtus kalács, Alexandria and Baia Mare sweetmeats, Malancrav apple juice, honey and other goodies.


For the little ones, the fair organizers also have, in store, “Martisor” plays. On Sunday, starting 12:30, at the Peasant’s Club, the Romanian Peasant’s Museum’s drama workshop children’s troupe, coordinated by Beatrice Iordan, will present the animated play “The Three-branched Oak Fairy”. The play will be accompanied by live music.


The fair is open between 10 am and 6 pm.
