Bauernmarkt - Epcot Flower & Garden 2017
As a part of the Festival edition of the eatDisney Challenge, every weekend we will share another stop or two around the food booths at the Flower and Garden Festival. This week, we are making a stop at Bauernmarkt- Farmer's Market, as we follow along with the Festival Passport. (Check out our previous Flower & Garden 2017 posts here!) We are huge German Food fans, so this stop was right up our alley!
The Germany Pavilion is one of our favorite stops around the World Showcase any time of year, but Flower and Garden added fun with a few new treats. This year, Schöfferhofer provided a special German treat for the festival - Zitron Weizen-mix. If you are a fan of the grapefruit bier, this would be your new favorite, if it were still available. Think a lemon version (like a lemon shandy but better) of the grapefruit bier. We were told they ran out and that it might be out for the rest of the festival. We also found out from our local shop that it was a Epcot exclusive import, but as that was how the grapefruit started out, we are hopeful that it will be available more places in the future.
We enjoyed a couple other items for this booth that are still available. Both the Currywurst with Paprika chips and Potato Pancakes with caramelized ham are great German treats. If you are a fan of German meats the Currywurst, which is a roasted bratwurst with a curry ketchup, is so good. The paprika chips where our little's favorite savory treat of the festival.
The potato pancake with caramelized ham was so delicious that we have picked it up several more times. The combination of the herb sour cream, onions, and caramelized ham with potato pancake gave a creamy savory goodness that was almost too good to share. If you are not sure about German faire, this is a great introduction even for those who are less adventurous.
We love this stop, even with the Zitrone out (grapefruit is a great second). If you are a German food fan or new to the German cuisine, this stop is a must try.

Tips and Overall Review
- Our favorite item here, the Zitrone Weizen-Mix, is possibly sold out for the rest of the festival. As as it was an Epcot exclusive import, we are hoping it comes back soon.
- If you are not sure of a beer to try, you can't go wrong with the Beer Flight!
- The potato pancake is classic comfort food so be sure to give it a try with either the ham or apple sauce.
