The rustic hall of the Fabrik in Altona is considered the first and most well-known cultural and communication center in Germany. It was founded in 1971 in the building of a former machine factory. Every Saturday the “Marktzeit” appears as the Ottenser indoor farmer’s market. This colourful event couldn’t work better anywhere else than here! A market along the lines of the so-called “neighborhood markets” as they are known in New York, San Francisco, Cape Town and Melbourne. The Marktzeit kidnaps you on a culinary getaway – packed with up to 35 exhibitors, who do their job with passion.
“Back to the roots” is this season’s credo, after an open air summer premiere at the Rindermarkthalle. Drift away, forget time, nibble tasty treats just following the scent of salty or sweet things, whether traditional wood-fired bread, gourmet distillates, cake pops, freshly baked tarts, French macarons or the best Serrano ham and organic mountain-cheese. Beautiful stalls with creative designs round off the offerings so you can shop for selected custom products in textile design, photography and screen printing on ceramics, you will surely find something special for yourself or to give away. A fishmonger revives the forecourt and once in a while alternating food trucks.
Yummy compiled breakfast baskets, while stock lasts, are perfect to ring in the weekend with family and friends. On the gallery you can pleasantly relax and at the same time enjoy the live music while the kids can have fun on the painting table.
Get the weekend started!
