Bauernmarkt: Farmer’s Market Menu & Review (2024 Epcot Flower & Garden Festival)

Bauernmarkt: Farmer’s Market Menu & Review (2024 Epcot Flower & Garden Festival)

The Bauernmarkt: Farmer’s Market is located in the Germany pavilion and is known for serving a variety of Bavarian bites and beverages.

Usually, any Epcot festival booth found in Germany is a popular one.

If you’re not looking to be too adventurous food and drink-wise, Germany might be for you.

All food and drink items at Bauernmarkt 2024

This year, Bauernmarkt has the same food and drink items as last year, including the potato pancakes, warm strudel, and beverages like the not-so-good Apfelschaumwein.

Overall, this is an all-around solid booth.

Be sure to check our 2024 Bauernmarkt must-tries, photos, full reviews, and ratings below.

Overview

Location: Germany pavilion
Nearby booths: Refreshment Outpost, Primavera Kitchen

Shannon (Founder)

  • Dislikes: Beers that taste “stinky,” anything too salty
  • Dietary Restrictions: None

Heather (Editor)

  • Likes: Strong flavors, anything made out of potatoes, white wines, all beers (especially stouts and wheat beers), doesn’t mind sweet (plain fruit is NOT a dessert. Ever.)

Potato Pancakes with Applesauce

These potato pancakes are served with house-made apple sauce. This dish is also part of the Garden Graze, the food crawl where you can earn a prize.

Potato pancakes 2024
  • Price: $5.25
  • Special Diets: Plant-Based, Gluten-Friendly
  • Rating: 3.3/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Mushy apple sauce topping + soft potato pancakes = bad texture overall with pretty bland flavors.
Heather: I love potato cakes and these are good. I like the ham ones better, though.
Felicia: The applesauce tastes homemade and is delicious. The potato pancake is potato-y and fine. I don’t personally care for this flavor combination, but it’s well executed.

Toasted Pretzel Bread

This isn’t just any toasted pretzel bread, but it’s topped with Black Forest ham and melted gruyère cheese.

Toasted Pretzel Bread 2024
  • Price: $6.00
  • Special Diets: N/A
  • Rating: 3.7/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Overly salty. Tricky to eat.
Heather: Kinda hard to eat. Salty. Not bad, though.
Felicia: Absolutely delicious. The pretzel is soft. The ham is crispy and full of flavor and there is plenty of salty delicious cheese. Pretty filling, too.

Warm Cheese Strudel

A warm cheese strudel with mixed berries. This is the only sweet option on the menu.

Warm Cheese Strudel 2024
  • Price: $4.75
  • Special Diets: Kid-Friendly
  • Rating: 2.8/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Flaky pastry, decent portion, berries lacked any sweetness.
Heather: It is too chewy and the berry seeds feel funny in my teeth make it stop.
Felicia: The mixed berries were slightly artificial tasting. I didn’t care for the cream and the pastry was soggy. I don’t ever like this sort of food item though so maybe why I didn’t care for it.

Bitburger Premium Pils

The Premium Pils is a pilsner brewed by Bitburger in Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany.
Note: this drink is also available in a flight.

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Light but fairly flavorless.
Heather: This is what I’m talking about! A beer that tastes like a beer.
Felicia: Solid Pilsner. Bold flavor but easy to drink. Favorite beer from this booth.

Stiegl Brewery Radler Raspberry

The Radler Raspberry is a fruity beer brewed by Stiegl Brewery in Salzburg, Austria.

  • Price: $5.75 (6 oz) / $9.75 (12 oz)
  • Made with alcohol? Yes
  • Rating: 3.8/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Just the right balance of light and sweet.
Heather: Maybe it is too sweet but at this moment in my life, I really like it. Will I like it tomorrow? Maybe. But right NOW? Definitely yes.
Felicia: Too sweet for me, but it’s a nice light and bubbly raspberry flavored beer. Good for fans of fruity beer.

A pale amber wheat with notes of banana and clove brewed by Weihenstephaner in Bavaria, Germany

  • Made with alcohol? Yes
  • Rating: 1.0/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Whew. An overwhelming flavor and not a great one.
Heather: No.
Felicia: Disgusting. Super sweet but with an alcohol burn. And the rosemary floating in it just adds a funk. Would give it 0 if I could.
