The name says it all at the BESONDERS market in Hamburg - there are all kinds of design treasures and culinary highlights to marvel at, to try and buy.

A pleasure for the eyes and the palate. At BESONDERS Markt the name says it all. This market stands for varied, lively shopping experiences. It is Hamburg's very special Design & Food market. The selection of exhibitors is carefully curated. They come from Hamburg and all over Germany. Design lovers and gourmets can try, taste and buy and experience the interesting stories of the designers, manufacturers and retailers in direct exchange. Exciting small, fine workshops on everything to do with lettering and a tasty gastronomic offer make the event an enjoyable day for the whole family.
Around 80 exhibitors present their special products and favourite pieces far away from the mainstream in the beautiful halls of the Museum der Arbeit on Sunday, 8 April and Sunday, 28 October. Exciting handmade labels, manufactories and traders of special goods will be there. In addition to Hamburg's local heroes and popular labels from elsewhere, there are also numerous newcomers to discover. There are especially tasty delicacies from fine food manufacturers, beverage specialists and suppliers of regional delicacies who will be available for tasting and sale. Outside on the museum courtyard, various food trucks offer hearty and sweet snacks. Inside there are drinks from Elbler with cider and spritzers from the old country and Black Delight with the best coffee specialities.
It is all about taking part in small, fine workshops on the subject of writing: Printing - Embossing - Handlettering. Anyone who, after so much creativity on the part of the exhibitors, itches in their fingers can, for example, print a card with their own lettering, emboss it or practise handwriting. As a partner of BESONDERS Hamburg, the Museum der Arbeit itself is represented on the action area with a historic printing press. Experienced printers will provide visitors with expert support. Lettering queen Martina Johanna shows the first steps towards putting beautiful handwriting on paper. Nataša from the stationery label NAVUCKO. brings her foil embossing machine with her and demonstrates how paper can be refined with it.

Hamburg North is a wonderful place to live. The city centre can be reached in no time, and there is plenty of nature nearby. Everything goes at a slightly slower pace here. But there are still many things to see and do.
