Places to visit in Huedin. Languages: en

On Tuesdays, the town of Huedin, an hour's drive from Cluj, hosts a bustling farmers' market. The focal point is a central square where several streets intersect. Here, you can find a variety of goods ranging from clothing to pickled items. Farmers from the surrounding areas come to sell their produce and goods. The market offers authentic agricultural tools, particularly beneficial for those who employ traditional farming methods in remote villages. For instance, you can find wooden scythe handles for hand-mowing hay. There's also an open-air grill area where farmers can enjoy grilled meat and have a beer. Like in the town itself, the market has a significant Roma population. The market serves not just as a place for commerce but also as a snapshot of the local culture and lifestyle.

The Roma community in Romania is one of the largest in Europe and is characterized by a rich but often misunderstood culture. In Huedin, like in many parts of Romania, they form a significant part of the local population. The community often faces social marginalization and struggles with access to education and employment. However, they are also known for their crafts, music, and trades, which they bring to local markets like the one in Huedin. The market serves as a gathering place where Roma crafts and goods can be appreciated, offering a window into their vibrant culture despite the challenges they face.
