When I got there I was surrounded by vegan lusciousness like pecan brownies, outstanding roasted coffee, superhearty lentil soups, exquisite jelly, dandelion syrup and also other non vegan goods like freshly baked brioche, macarons or organic pork.
I kinda felt like one of those kids in ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’ with the golden ticket my hand. However Marktzeit isn't your average food market. Here you will find a lovely kids area, where your kiddos can draw, there is a little art corner, but what I like the most about this place is you can grab a basket and do some breakfast shopping. ‘Die Fabrik’ provides the perfect location to have gorgeous brunch with your family and friends. I saw people doing that and I was like WOAH I wanna do that too!
But I haven't left Marktzeit just with a fully loaded shopping bag. I also had the chance to have a little chat with Max, the Co-Founder of Marktzeit (see picture with the Von Freude Beer).
While talking with him about the concept and food, people came by and offered him their mouthwatering food. He was literally eating the most amazing snacks WHILE chatting about food and drinks. Damn Max you live my life!
I’m already looking forward to next saturday, need to restock my jam selection by Die Leckerei. Last time I bought ‘Apricot’ without any added sugar and 200 gram pod on 100 gram jam, distinctively delicious! I guess I see you there then. Happy Food Market Time!
