Since 2003, thanks to the Association of the inhabitants of the old town, Sion has revived its market and its ancient traditions. The market is held every Friday of the year from 8:00 to 14:00, in all weathers.
The merchants mainly offer local products and crafts. The market takes place in the streets of Grand-Pont, Lausanne, the Rhône and at the Espace des Remparts in Sion.
Every year in Sion, on Good Friday, just before Easter, the market has its party: Le Grand Marché de Pâques. It lasts all day and welcome around 12,000 people.
