Since it was first held in April 2013, the renewed fair became a successful event. This October, you have a chance to discover places on Chapter Street or neighbouring St. Nicholas Square with the book market and gastro zone in the very heart of Trnava Region capital. Once being here you realize this is how people enjoy autumn in Trnava.

Various markets have a long story in Trnava, traditional Trnava Fair being the most famous one. However, there were also other popular markets, including the square market. While jarmok comes from 'Jahr Markt', yearly market in German, the Slovak word for square fair "rínok" - or "rínek" in local Trnava dialect - comes from 'ring', both German and Slovak for circle, because tables were placed in a circle as the market-holders sold their wares at the town or village central square.

This modern urban market, based on a tradition of Saturday square markets and nowadays usually held every three moths in one of historical streets in the centre of Trnava, provides original handmade products from local producers and farmers - vegetable, fruit, meal products, wine, honey, cakes, decorations, fashion accessories, original clothes, jewelry and every other thing made with love. Every event has its own atmosphere - spring, summer, autumn or Christmas theme. Accompanying programme is also prepared - live folk or jazz music, theater, workshops for kids or discussions.

At the market where people meet with delicous food, great music, workshops and hand made products, children can take part at a workshop programme in the gallery at the historical venue of Trnava synagogue, enjoy theatrical pergformances or make their own pumpkin bogey right at the fair.

If you like to spend a nice Saturday afternoon, feel the amazing atmosphere, meet friends, buy healthy goodies or an original product, at Trnava Square Fair you are at the right place.
