Defying industry monopolies, this family-run artisanal dairy embodies Denmark’s heritage of quality dairy. In a world dominated by large producers, their regenerative dairy practices and handcrafted cheeses stand out as a beacon of conscious farming. Regularly present at Grønt Marked, they exemplify how small-scale producers can thrive while embracing values of sustainability and craftsmanship. From their distinct goat cheese offerings to holistic grazing methods, they prioritize both animal welfare and exquisite taste.

Kysøko is an organic and pesticide-free farm run by Anders and Susanne. Spanning 17 hectares of land, the farm dedicates 6 hectares solely to fruit production. The story of this beautiful farm goes back generations and has been in the family’s possession as far back as 1797.

Have you ever wondered what goes into running a farm that not only produces organic vegetables but also adheres to principles of non-violent farming?

Join us on a journey to Brinkholm, a Danish farm that’s not just a place of cultivation, but a reflection of its owners’ values, ambitions, and a spiritual connection to the land.

As a small-scale, low-impact regenerative farm, there’s an inevitable synergy then between
Søagergård’s produce; primarily eggs, pork, milk, and honey. 

As Marianne explains, “The bees make
nectar from the clover flower, and the clover fields provide nutrition for the cows… and with the
cows eating the taller grasses and the chickens scratching the ground eating insects, they all have

different effects in terms of how they ruminate”.

As he walked me around his farm in Denmark’s Central Zealand, I interviewed Adam to find out about what he does at Planteskolen Evigt Liv.

He told me how he believes in doing things differently in order to contribute to a world where farming follows the cycles of nature, and mitigates the release of greenhouse gases, all the while enhancing the beauty of the landscape and the diversity of our diet.

In this article, I compare the nutritional benefits of organic and regenerative ingredients bought from the Grønt Marked to conventionally produced ingredients purchased in the supermarket. I do so through the lens of a Danish classic: a flæskesteg sandwich.

At Lindegaarden, Ida-Marie is on a mission to reconnect people with nature through farming while regenerating the soil and growing healthy food.

Lindegaardens methods of farming are not just practical ways of producing healthy food, but embodiments of their beliefs, beliefs that they want to share with others.

An ode to the Grønt Marked

By Daiva Saffron Friedmann, March 1st, 2024

I’ve written a poem, as an ode to this market: 

 

From soft to squash,

The escalation of the dirt’s offering,

Hands fosterings,

July Strawberries laughing themselves to tears.

Because we’ll wake up on sundays

following

Matching the seasons,

Becoming practice 

Again.

We’ve been living in Copenhagen for almost two years – and volunteering just as long.

For us, the routine of the Sunday market makes it very easy to keep up with the faces we recognise, get to know them even better and meet new volunteers. We’re really looking forward to starting it all over again.

At the heart of our community is the Grønt Marked kitchen. We cook using the best seasonal, local ingredients. But we’re more than just a kitchen – we’re a culinary movement dedicated to transforming the way we think about food.
Our mission is to highlight the beauty and importance of seasonal eating, showcasing how delicious and sustainable meals can be crafted from locally-sourced produce.

FAQ

Why a Farmers Market?

We believe all farmers should have the possibility to sell at a fair price directly to the consumers – at the same time, consumers should have access to fresh, seasonal, local and healthy food. In this sense, Farmers Market are an important step towards connecting local farmers and end-consumers, cutting out the middleman. Moreover, Farmers Market are places where to build relations – they contribute to creating a transparent food-shopping alternative where human connection and community comes first.

Which kind of products can I find at the market?

Local, Seasonal and Sustainable grown veggies, fruits, mushrooms, grains and flowers. Ethical and Sustainable animal produce such as eggs, cheese, milk, meat and charcuterie. Processed handcrafted produce such as vinegars, spirits, jams, ferments etc. made using local and sustainable raw materials. For more info, please feel free to check our guidelines.

How do you select the producers?

Please feel free to check our guidelines here.

How can I get involved?

You can write to us or swing by one of our markets. We are always happy to meet new faces and discuss great ideas! You are also welcome to volunteer at the markets 🙂 for more info please check the volunteers page!

Who is behind the markets?

A community made by farmers, volunteers, friends, colleagues and believers – each one ready to support the project and contribute with their skills, enthusiasm and great ideas! Read more about the origin of Grønt Market and the team right here!

Can Grønt Marked organize a market for my event?

We don’t do events. Farmers Markets are not an event for entertainment, but a regular monthly or weekly appointment for people to buy their groceries. The main goal is for producers to sell while establishing connections and for consumers to buy good and healthy food while learning about our food system. In order to guarantee successful markets, the focus should always be on the farmers and their produce.

What forms of payment do you take?

All the producers take MobilePay & cash. Some of them also accept cards. 

Do you sell plastic bags?

We suggest you bring your own bags from home. Most producers use reusable or no packaging when possible. But cheese & juices are sometimes in plastic. All the producers use biodegradable materials to wrap produce when up to Health & Safety standards.

Is there a sheltered area in case of rain?

Grønt Marked is an open air market, so there are no covered areas.
