Most of what we offer is our own produce and comes directly from the field. Leeks, celeriac, potatoes, carrots, radishes, cabbage and kale are grown by my husband in Arzl.
Marianne has stood behind her stand at the Farmers’ Market for 47 years now, making her one of the longest tenants in the Markthalle. Every Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday she shares a little bench with her market neighbour Melitta from the Schmankerl Alm to chat about God and the world.
Marianne, you’ve been selling products from your farm for 47 years and are an institution here at the Farmers’ Market. What has changed over the years?
I’ve been here for almost 50 years with our products but if you also add up the time that my mother-in-law sold fruit and vegetables at Marktplatz and at Johannesplatz, we have a family business spanning almost 100 years. Back then, everything was different of course but I’m very glad of the dry, warm spot we have here in the Markthalle.
Amongst all of the vegetables, I also see a couple of different types of schnapps. Does the Unterlechner family distil too?
Most of what we offer is our own produce and comes directly from the field. Leeks, celeriac, potatoes, carrots, radishes, cabbage and kale are grown by my husband in Arzl. In season, we also have berries, apples, plums and other fruit. The schnapps is one of the few things that we buy in. But I can vouch for its quality, too. laughs
