Germany’s way of socializing at Farmers’ marketsThe best opportunity to experience and buy regional groceries is to visit a typical farmers’ market. It almost seems as if time stood still: men and women stroll comfortably and without haste across the market square, chat among each other or to the market women and get inspirations for their lunch from the wide range of freshly harvested fruit and vegetables and homemade cheeses and sausages from organic farming.
If one cannot decide from the wide selection, the stand operators are happy to support the decision-making with small samples. In addition to the good atmosphere, the air is filled with the scents of many different products. It smells deliciously of fresh baked goods, tangy cheeses, flowers and even the vegetable stands can be identified by their own fragrance.
