The mar­ket fea­tures nat­u­rally grown fruit and veg­eta­bles, nat­u­rally raised meat (in­clud­ing chicken, pork, goat, lamb and wild game meat – red deer and wild boar), wood oven baked bread, home­style bak­ing, lo­cal honey, home­made ice cream, pre­serves, herbs and spices, pre­pared foods (Bel­gian, Ja­maican, Thai and Ar­me­nian), gar­den plants, ar­ti­sans and much more.
