Historical Background
Marsimartnan, associated with Mattisdag (February 24th), can be traced back to the Viking Age. Around the year 1750, more than 1500 Swedish farmers with horses attended the market and traded with fishermen, fish farmers, and other merchants.

Levanger is an hour away from Trondheim and half an hour from Trondheim Airport Værnes. Situated in the heart of beautiful Innherred, Levanger is a hub for trade and culture, tradition, and history. Levanger's town center boasts picturesque wooden buildings, green spaces near the sea, piers, and a ferry to Ytterøy.

Marsimartnan is Innherred's premier cultural market with a focus on "genuine quality" in all aspects, including trade, culture, and communal celebrations.
