Last week I was in Hamburg, Germany. What a great city! One of the highlights of our getaway was the Isemarket in the neighbourhood of city district Eppendorf. The people of Hamburg do their luxury and generous grocery shoppings here, every Tuesday and Friday between 8.30 and 14.00. Underneath the U-Bahn (metro) viaduct one can find this 800 meters long market, full of flowers, fruit, cheese, charcuterie, seafood, the best chocolates in town (from Zuckerbäckerei Pingel) and the food-stalls, where people come during lunch time for Tom-Kha-Kha, Bratkartoffeln (baked potatoes) or currywürst. In a photo report I’ll give you a nice impression. If I lived in Hamburg and hosted a nice party or home dinner, I know where I would go to buy fresh vegetables, fish, cheese, flowers and meat; Isemarket it is!
Isemarket can be found under the viaducts of the U-bahnhofstations between Eppendorfer Baum and Hoheluftbrücke. On Tuesday and Friday between 8.30 and 14.00 it’s the place to be for luxury grocery shoppings, or go there for lunch. I highly recommend this, together with a walk though the upmarket and chic neighbourhood Eppendorf. Walk from U-bahn Eppendorfer Baum, via the market towards U-bahn Hoheluftbrücke, but turn right half way onto Falkenried. Turn right again onto Eppendorfer Weg and continue on Eppendorfer Landstrasse. This whole neighbourhood is full of little shops, lunch cafés and old buildings. Have a look on Falkenried when you pass the Marsbar. This was the old guard’s station of the machinery factory Fahrzeugwerke. Nowadays one can have a coffee or small lunch here.
*Note: I have not been asked or invited to write about this market in Hamburg, Germany. It was my own idea. All images are mine, made with a Canon EOS M3 camera.
