Big Linda

‚Die Dicke Linda‘ is small and round and has a rich yellow tinge. Linda is Germany’s most popular potato variety and was even awarded “Best Potato of the Year” in 2007. Die Dicke Linda is also the name of the new weekly farmer’s market that offers produce from Brandenburg’s fields and flowerbeds and local manufacturers. Starting this Saturday, and then every first and third Saturday of the month, the Kranoldplatz – a rather unimpressive square in the midst of boomtown Neukölln – is brought to life with bustling stalls offering food galore: fresh fruit and vegetables, flowers, homemade jams, freshly baked bread and cakes, coffee and wine, game and cut meats from Brandenburg, fresh fish from the Scharmützelsee and loads of delicious snacks to polish off on the spot. Die Dicke Linda already took place three times last year. It was so successful, it earned its weekly slot, initiated and organized by Theresa Dühn. The 32-year-old lives just around the corner and strives to bring healthy, seasonal and handmade products to the neighbourhood. Wanting to create a meeting place to enjoy coffee breaks and lunch, she even asked neighbours about their wishes and ideas. They’re all very excited about having their own market again. So are we. And so be it. P.S. Make sure you meet Biobauer Klaus!
