Open on Thursday and Saturday as the largest artisan market in Frankfurt, Erzeugermarkt Konstablerwache offers everything from Lamb Skins or Riesling to handmade Sausages, Cheese and Pastry at prices that are much lower than other stands, shops or restaurants throughout the city.
A conglomeration of some fifty kiosks and carts, the bulk Cash-only and fluent only in German, it is beginning at 08h00 that the Altstadt area begins to fill with patrons, several Chefs in white seen examining Produce or organic Meats while roasters fired their grills in preparation for the nine hours to follow.
Located at Konstablerwache 12, a nearby metro stop providing access since parking fills quickly, it was after taking a look around that stop one was made at a table between Vogelsberger Kartoffel und Bärlauchbratwurst and Original Vogelsberger Holzofenbrot, the former’s Currywurst intensely spiced but a touch sweet while Pastries from two Women first impressed by way of their Caramelized Hazelnut Braid, then with soft and springy Doughnuts.
A bit underwhelmed by Vogelsberger Holzofenbrot’s Berliner, the Jam off-centered and skimpy, better bites were found amidst Bee Sting Cake shellacked in Almonds as well as their buttery Pie Crust brushed with Custard and topped with poached Rhubarb juxtaposing big chunks of Brown Sugar Streusel.
Strolling further, a few choices including made-to-order Waffles debated, it was instead on Sausage and Pastry that Euros were again spent, the handmade Brat and Rindwurst from Bio-Bauernhof Wingenfeld both snappy over a great grind while Maja’s Backwaren impressed with the best Pretzel found in Frankfurt for just 1€.
Performing equally well with Marble Cake, the Crumb course but moist with Butter, it was a bit unfortunate that most of Maja’s goods were sold in family-size portions, though the Poppy Seed Danish called Verschiedene Kaffeestückchen was delicious and managable for one while Donauwelle weighing almost half a kilogram more than justified its 4€ price by eating something like a Cream Cheese Brownie dialed up by Sour Cherries.
