If you're into plants and fresh harvest, the annual Autumn Fair at Trompenburg Gardens & Arboretum is a must-visit. Expect dozens of stalls with seasonal products and plants in the greenest setting imaginable.

The Autumn Fair is an absolute highlight in Rotterdam. In 2019, the Autumn Fair at Trompenburg Gardens and Arboretum is held for the 25th time. The annual event is quite popular attracting about 3000 visitors each year.

The annual event is a market with fair harvest products, tastings and the most beautiful plants from selected growers. What really sets it apart from other events like Swan Market, Oogstmarkt and Djemaa el Fna is not only the added focus on plants but also the fact it takes place within an enclosed, green environment.

In fact, the Autumn Fair is actually a two-in-one activity. The entrance ticket is valid for the gardens as well as for the Autumn Fair. Before, during or after visiting the market you can walk around in the botanical gardens.

What to expect at the Autumn Fair?

This year, visitors will be able to browse and shop at approximately 35 stalls. You'll find a cosy atmosphere, stalls with good food, plants from selected growers, traditional products and delicious tastings. The growers selling their plants are selected on the basis of quality and diversity. So if you're a plant lover or looking for that special plant to brighten up your home, there's bound to be something you like.

The Autumn Fair is more than a fair. Trompenburg Gardens & Arboretum is akin to a museum with a living collection. Here you will find a very special collection of trees, perennials, bulbs and tubers. The Quercus (oak), Fagus (beech), Ilex (holly) and Hosta collections belong to the NPC (Dutch Plant Collections) collections.
