At the market: our first day!


And than it’s time… for the very first time in your life… at the market. Beautiful products, great flavors and of course sharing those flavors with the many visitors to the market. Sometimes it takes forever to make big decision but once you’ve made that decision it can go really hard.

Going back in time, maybe about four years ago. All of a sudden, I think it must have been a regular monday, I stopped having fun at my job. I had always been one of those guys that shouted out loud “When you go to work for a week and feel bad doing it, it is time to move on.” Which is a very true and valid advice but when you have to listen to your own advice, it is a bit of a differen story. It can take a little longer to make that final decision. Now, after four years and four employers who didn’t renew the temporary contracts I finally made that big decision.

Cranberry pomegranate pie

I think I can safely say that we had the darkest workshop every just yesterday. And it wasn’t even the workshop on artificial light… But it could have easily been. In the – normally rather light – workshop space from Greendelicious it looked like...
