UPDATE: Unfortunately the Easter market has to be cancelled due to the Corona epidemic!
It's that time again: With the meteorological beginning of spring the anticipation for Easter is increasing! And what better way to increase this anticipation than by visiting the popular Frankfurt Easter Market, which is taking place for the 36th time this year. On Saturday, 14 March and Sunday, 15 March, numerous exhibitors will be offering colourful and creatively designed Easter eggs, Easter decorations and other spring-like decorative items in the Dominican Monastery from 11 am to 6 pm. Colourful, creative, cheerful - this is the Easter Market, which is organised on a voluntary basis and for a good cause: The net proceeds will be donated to the DMSG Hessen and will benefit the counselling work of the MS self-help organisation, which is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year. </For me, the Easter market is a first herald of spring: After the grey of winter, things are finally getting more colourful again and spring is moving in", says volunteer coordinator Ingrid Bauer full of anticipation for the "36th Frankfurt Easter Market", which she has been preparing for months with her co-organiser Käte Westphal and her volunteer team. Thus, Ingrid Bauer and her team have once again succeeded this year in attracting a diverse mix of exhibitors to the approximately 65 stands. Especially lovers of traditional and unusual art on eggs in all variations will get their money's worth. </It is close to my heart to show old handicraft traditions and egg decorating techniques at the Easter Market and thus contribute to their preservation", says organiser Bauer. That's why visitors can not only buy handicrafts, but also experience their creation at first hand. Because at the Easter market, you can look over the artists' shoulders as they paint eggs and other works. One of them is the world champion confectioner Bernd Siefert from Michelstadt in the Odenwald, who will again be represented with sweet temptations at the "Frankfurt Easter Market" in 2020. Watching him creating sweet Easter gifts is really always a highlight. </p>
All in all, there is a wide range of handicrafts to discover at the many stands in the Dominican monastery: glass art, floristry, Tiffany, lace-making, turnery, ceramics, glassblowing, patchwork, pewter figures, porcelain painting, stuffed animals, origami, cards, candles, embroidery and other handicrafts. "For the first time the calligrapher, who has been participating in the autumn market for two years, will also be present at the Easter Market," announces organizer Bauer. The selection is completed by homemade jams, pestos, chocolates, vinegars and oils.
And of course the DMSG Hessen will also be represented with an information stand: There interested parties can inform themselves about the close consulting network, the annual programme and the various other offers such as the new "Functional Training with MS" or the online acquaintance platform "MS Connect". In addition, MS self-help groups take over the cash desk service on the weekend and receive a part of the proceeds for their group cash desk.
So, get yourself in a spring mood and visit the 36th Frankfurt Easter Market! </The cafeteria is open on Saturday, 14th and Sunday, 15th March 2020, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. in the Dominican Monastery, Kurt-Schumacher-Straße 23, 60311 Frankfurt.</The entrance fee is two euros for adults, children up to twelve years are free: <a href="http://www.ostermarkt-frankfurt.de" target="_blank" rel="noopener">www.ostermarkt-frankfurt.de
