Some hawkers sell items of all kinds. Traditional gastronomic relays also take place during which you can eat traditional food and taste the traditional Fouerfësch. These are whiting cooked in brewer’s yeast, with chips, a cold beer or a glass of dry white wine from Moselle! Every year, shops in Luxembourg and other Luxembourgish producers offer activities related to the Fouer. Bernard Massard, producer of Cremant, sells a special cuvée for the Schueberfouer.
