Service Description

In the context of the approval procedure, weekly, annual or special markets in particular are considered events.

  • A weekly market is a regularly recurring, time-limited event at which a large number of vendors offer, for example, food and raw natural products.
  • A specialty market is one at which certain goods are usually offered at regular intervals at a temporary event.
  • All kinds of goods are offered at fairs. In general, fairs are events that recur regularly at longer intervals and are limited in time.
  • If you as an organizer wish to offer a weekly, annual or special market, you must apply for a permit from the responsible authority. The permit means that you as the organizer are exempt from certain commercial obligations (e.g. travel fabric card, compliance with store closing times).
  • Organizers are natural and legal persons. Cities also often act as organizers, mainly for weekly markets. If the market takes place in a public space, a special use permit is required. During the application process, the competent authority checks the applicant's reliability.
