Zāļu Tirgus - Midsummer herbs and grass market at the Dome Square in Riga
Riga

The Herbs and grass market is held at the very "heart" of Old Riga on the 22th of June, one day before the summer solstice, or Jani°(pronounced Yaany), as this traditional and hugely popular feast is called in Latvian. Here you can find flower and oak leave wreaths for your all-nighter celebration around the bonfire, buy herbs and beautiful flower bouquets to decorate the house and generally enjoy that unique moment when Latvian meadows and gardens make their way to the city.

More About Riga

Originated from a small fishermen village, for centuries Riga has been an important part of the trade chain between Russia and Western Europe. A lively crossroad of cultures and backgrounds for over 800 years, the historical centre of Riga has accumulated an impressive cultural baggage and today is justly included in the UNESCO’s World Heritage list.
