NileGuide Expert tip:
The specialty food market doesn't take place when there is another big train station event, such as the Zurich Christmas Market in December.
For the past thirteen years on Wednesdays, there has been a specialty food market in Zurich's Main Station. Vendors set up shop to sell rich cheeses, Swiss sausages and cold cuts, gourmet breads, fine olives and olive oils, chocolate covered fruit and other delights from 10:00 AM until 8:00 PM. Many vendors will let you sample their goods before you make a purchase. It is also possible to eat lunch and dinner at the market since there are sausage and raclette stands as well as curry and stir-fry options.
