The May Market is the largest regional consumer exhibition of Germany, which always begins on last Saturday in April and lasts for eleven days. The traditionally last day is therefore called May Market Tuesday.
The May Market has a long history beginning in 1613 in Mannheim after John II, Count Palatine of Zweibrücken granted it privileges. The market was originally used for shopkeepers and cattle dealers.
