 Swan Market

Swan Market is a platform for starting, creative entrepreneurs who want to show their products to the larger public. This is reflected in a lifestyle market where a very diverse creative offer can be found. Handmade jewelry, accessories, fashion, vintage, kids items, affordable art and cool interior items are offered by the creative participants of Swan Market. In addition to all the shopping pleasure, you are spoiled for food and drink, offered by authentic food trucks and live music from emerging to renowned artists. There is also plenty of fun for the little Swanners!
In short, we stand for one:
Creative off-line marketplace
