"As a stand operator, it's a part of doing something decorative," says Michael Käser from Käsers Castle in Elfingen. The spring cabbage tree has been decorated by its mother Franziska. The frame was welded by father Ruedi, especially for Rüeblimärt and fitted with nails. For the typical martian image, sellers give everything. Durchzechte craft nights are included. Andrea Muntwyler-Morgenthaler from Hirschthal discovers: "It's just Rüeblimärt."
And the visitors liked it. For pictures of the best motives, many smooth queues, Susanne Grenacher told. For her standing with little rock bags she made mobile of driftwood, leaves and of course carrots. "Look, people will take pictures again," said Susanne Grenacher with a glint.
"Everyone has beautiful, we desert"
The star was yesterday Rüeblirad by Hansueli Furrer from Schongau LU. 31 percent voted in the AZ survey for the self-rotating artwork with a mosaic of over 1000 Rüebli discs of the species Snow White, Deep Purple, Nutri Red, Küttiger and Original Rüebli. "The engine is from a bean machine," says Hansueli Furrer. After thirteen years, the farmer knows what rüebli lovers like. The butterfly made by him and his team also entered the wreaths. The effort seems worth it: "We sell about three tons of carrots in our five places."
Less attractive and therefore a catcher was Kölliker Yodler's rugged character carrots. "Everyone has nice carrots. We have the desert," said Sepp Dahinden, laughing. "Every year, he lets the farmer leave a box of" twisted sights "for rustic style deco. The demanding nickname they give to the orange sinks, the Jews would not betray.
But the 37th Rüeblimärt was not only something for the eye, but also for the taste buds. Rüebli tea, Rüebli confit, Rüebli plaice, Rüebli ravioli, Pickled carrots, Rüebli bread, Rüebli vinäger and Rüebli schnapps were all available. On the question of a customer who is a vegetable in the meat, slaughterer Walter Schneider from Möriken reported.
"We Prevent a Beizlifest"
Even before the official launch of the market, Aarau entered Rüebli city. In front of the most popular stalls, the first snakes were formed shortly after seven. From a successor's backpack, boldly grew the green carrot herb and swung with each step. Tots in the stroller nibbled on carrots and carrots for breakfast. "Everything with carrots is particularly popular. The people really ask," said Claudia Dubach, who also offered off-the-rack products at the Biberstein castle.
Not only in Aarau, Rüeblimärt is much sought after (see survey). This favors the inventor Walter Käser (66, Erlinsbach). "In the early years, Rüeblimärt was easy with just a few booths." By that time, the rush was so great that there was almost no carrots at lunch. "In terms of quality, we are better today than Zibelemärit", Käser is convinced. Make sure you have as many vegetable stalls as possible. "We want to prevent somehow Rüeblimärt a pickling party." The carrots shall remain stars.
