traditional-food-products-martisor-fair-2011Between February 24 and March 1st, 2011, in the Central Market from Piatra Neamt will take place a Traditional Food Products and Martisor Fair. The celebration of martisor is an old Romanian tradition that lasts for more than 2000 years.

Although there are many stories that talk about the significance of martisor, this messenger of spring, made from two strings – one white and one red – is usually worn at the beginning of spring for health, good luck and protection. That is why, every year, at the beginning of March, Romanians give martisoare as gifts, celebrating the arrival of spring.

Beside martisoare made by artisans, you’ll also see traditional food products, from different areas of the country. All the products are carefully selected and are the result of traditional food recipes.
