Homemade grocery and craftsmen market GARDU MUTI

Farmers and craftsmen from the most distant parts of Latvia will be invited for the fair and asked to take with them their best products to be sold.

Valmiermuiža will gather local producers from all around Latvia, offering homemade bread, cheese, smoked goods, lamprey, honey, herbal teas, spices, homemade wine, beer, juice, candied fruit, hard candy, gingerbread cookies and lots more.

Everything offered at the fair is natural and, hence, healthy, made by locally grown plants or gathered in the clean forests and meadows of Latvia. Local craftsmen will offer woollen socks, mittens, crochets, hammered work, wooden toys and jewellery to decorate one selves or to give them as presents to friends and relatives.

Items made by local craftsmen would make our ancestors proud, as they have been made according to the best traditions. Along the fair all visitors will have an opportunity to enjoy a varied culture programme, including activities to get better acquainted with the traditions of the annual customs, learn songs and games, master some of the traditional crafts and much more. For the entertainment of the youngest visitors, as usual, horseback or pony back riding will be offered. The fair and celebration „Gardu muti” is held four times a year, honouring Latvian annual customs.
