The fruit comes directly from the field to the market. The goods are often not so standardised as you might be used to, however, the taste is much more intensive than greenhouse goods. 

The sausages which in part are produced according to old recipes are simply delicious. 

Also offered are bacon, ham, cheese, jam, dried legumes, vegetable pastes and much more.
