Togehter with ith all the nice salespeople, spending money is twice as easy, and not just regular customers are served here very courteous.
The great atmosphere of many different languages and offers you best enjoy with a tasty coffee and cake or something with Savoury at the booths, which are spread over the whole market. Everywhere seatings are offered, usually surrounded by florists who embellish the rest stay even more.
Placed so comfortable, you should use the opportunity to observe other visitors. It's just fund to look at the crowds and many celebrities do not miss a visit to this market, too.
Since the farmer's market is right between two metro stops, you should refrain to get there by car. You wanna park your car? You probably will look long and often in vain. Unfortunately, the same is true for toilets. If you need one, you have to ask for in some of the surrounding coffee bars. But that's in fact the only notable shortcoming of the market. So what we can just say is: Don't miss!
