Fischer's Meat Market Glockenspiel

It chimes every hour on the hour, but that's all. No sausage man or figurines, and no oompa music. Worth a stop just to go to the market. Didn't leave empty-handed.

Fischer's Meat Market Glockenspiel

Stopped by at 1 pm on a Thursday and the glockenspiel was working! Very cute. It has a number a figures that go around the circle, then the Meat Market sign comes back to center. It has oompah music that plays. Worth the 15 minute drive off I-35.

Fischer's Meat Market Glockenspiel

Only operates on the hour. Go inside and buy some of their German smoked sausage and their German potato salad (warm it up before you eat it for deliciousness!).

Fischer's Meat Market Glockenspiel

Was really looking forward to the Glockenspiel, but was disappointed when we got to the market and nothing happened. Not sure if the metal "Meat Market" sign on the balcony has replaced the animated event or not. I sent an email to the establishment inquiring about the Glockenspiel. If I hear back, I'll be sure to post!

Fischer's Meat Market Glockenspiel

We were here May 31, 2013 and were told that the clock must be turned on in order for it to work. We asked if it was turned on and were told it is only turned on my management and manager was not available. Oh well -- on to the next city!

... yes, better managed glockenspiels beckon.
