This market was so movingly delicious to eye and sense, that I had to just enjoy it rather than documenting it. Produce, baked goods, prepared foods, and hard goods stalls were mixed and profuse, which was delightful. It’s summer, so the market was full of berries and cherries.
Although I have so far not found Berliners to be nice to strangers, that was not the experience in this market, and, also interesting, this seems to be typical of farmers markets everywhere I go.
Many of the produce vendors were resellers, but many of the hard goods were local objects.
I finally got new business cards, by letterpress, at the farmers market. (Video coming.) Local food, local business cards…
So despite being hesitant and apologetic every time I needed to speak, because I do not have any German at all, I felt at home with the friendly and happy attitudes of the vendors.
