Produce in Berlin: Food Assembly

Last week, I had the most amazing creamy and fresh Frischkäse I ever had in Berlin, I ate it directly out of the glass, I spread it on sliced Kohlrabi, I had it with currant jam on fresh toast, I finished the whole jar in less than 3 days.

Did I drive there just for a glass of fresh cheese? It would’ve been worth it, but I didn’t, it was way easier: I got it at Food Assembly.

Farmers’ Market in Berlin: Südstern

Food in Berlin: Die dicke Linda

When I first read about Die dicke Linda, the name of this new farmers’ market already made me smile. Linda is the name of one of the most popular potato varieties due to a huge media attention some years ago. It was barely saved from extinction by an enormous support from many farmers and movements like Slow Food. Now Linda became the name giver of something new and special happening in Neukölln.
