Farmer's Market, Tubingen

For a country known for its potatoes, Germany sure has some really fresh produce (even if at this time of year, the produce is coming in from Spain). One thing you will get fresh and locally grown are apples this time of year. And potatoes.

The farmers market in Tubingen is really close to where I stay and so I make it a point to go there at least once a week. They are up and running from 7 am to 1 pm on Mondays/Wednesday/Fridays. I did buy a couple of sausages at a convinience store the other day and ate just a quarter of one, and meat just doesnt agree with me anymore - feels alien after not having had it for so long! I gave the remains to a colleague, who will in turn get me some Glühwein and Sauerkraut tommorow. I'm also feeling a bit constipated - and I think it's because of that low-calorie sugar replacer pellets we have at our place - the honey's over and there is no regular sugar. So, I just had to get some honey from the farmers market today to see if that makes a difference!

Got myself some apricot jam, honey, yellow and red bell peppers and some salad leaves (don't know the name!). But was so impressed with the variety and freshness of the produce. Its got the Mumbai farmers market beat hands down.

I love love love outdoor farmer's markets. When I go to Macedonia, the first place I want to see is the outdoor farmer's/food market (looks just like the pictures above) and after that I go to visit my family! :))

I love the markets here in Paderborn, so I'm glad to hear that you're enjoying the same thing! The salad leaves you bought are Rucola in German, aka Arugala or Rocket in English. :) Viel Spass beim Einkaufem!
