General Rules for the medieval market

  1. All types of goods/activities/services must be approved by Medieval Week. Medieval Week approves products and materials that may have existed in the Middle Ages.

    – of medieval character and feel
    – inspired by the Middle Ages
    – made of materials that existed during the Middle Ages
    – made with medieval technology
  2. For designated space, the agreed space may not be expanded, for example through sales on the ground in front of the market stall. Control measurements will be carried out on site. Extra space will be charged afterwards. The organizer has no cash handling on site. Your marketplace must be paid for before arrival. If the organizer has not received payment before Thursday 5/8 2021, your place will not be measured.
  3. The designated space must be used at all times. If the market participant runs out of goods or for some other reason is unable to maintain his presence on the site in accordance with the specified days in the notification, the market coordinator shall be notified. Debiting takes place according to what is stated in the application. Market opening hours must be respected! For the period 8/8-15/8 2021, the following opening hours apply: Sunday to Saturday 11.00 -19.00, Sunday 15/8 at 11.00 -16.00.
  4. The market stall must be of a medieval character and in wood or wrought iron. Iron pipes are not allowed! Ceilings and walls are in fabric, wood or other timeless material. Everything modern must be camouflaged with timeless material. Make sure that the “back” of the market stall is clean and tidy. Remember to have a proper and nice shielding of work areas and storage areas. In case of rain: If you need to protect roofs / goods in case of rain, sew a duvet cover to a tarpaulin that you can put on your tents or market stalls.
  5. Signs must be designed in a medieval character. It is most contemporary to use symbols and speak for the goods. Handmade signs in wood or matte fabric (linen, cotton, etc) with text are allowed, but remember to use medieval fonts! Modern signage (refers to materials, fonts and design) is not allowed.
  6. Market goods may not be exposed on: – Paper towels or cardboard boxes – Metal cassettes – In plastic bags – In plastic carafes – In thermoses – In foil – On plastic hangers – Store inner plastic bags and disposable material visible- Plastic cutlery may no longer be used when selling and serving food. The cutlery offered must be of environmentally friendly material, such as wood or bamboo.
  7. Vendors and others staying in the stalls must be dressed in medieval clothes. Think about the shoes too! All sellers should wear headgear. A tip is also to search for movies and pictures from Medieval Week on Youtube or Google for inspiration. Simple tunic, sack or the like over modern clothes, sneakers etc. are not accepted.

  9. Vehicles in the area are only permitted for delivery and unpacking to and from the market stall outside the market’s opening hours. All vehicles must be removed from the marketplace no later than 60 minutes before the market opens. Note important! The reason for this is that it is a major safety risk for the visitor if there are cars driving around the market area after opening. The car-free area is also a very important part of the experience for the visitor. – both for the visitor who arrives at 11 and the one who arrives later in the day.
