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

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.

Potato pancakes 2024
  • Price: $5.25
  • Special Diets: Plant-Based, Gluten-Friendly
  • Rating: 3.0/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Mushy apple sauce topping + soft potato pancakes. It’s fine but I wish it had more flavor.
Heather: I don’t know why these are so limp?!!! It is more than just getting soggy because of the applesauce-it is like they are sitting in juice!
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: 4.3/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Little salty and tricky to eat, but loved the combo of ham and melted cheese flavors.
Heather: Skip the potato pancakes and get this instead! Delicious.
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: 3.3/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Flaky pastry, decent portion, berries lacked any sweetness
Heather: I do like this more than I did last year. Am I maturing? But – it is too chewy and the berry seeds feel funny in my teeth make it stop.
Felicia: The mixed berries were fresh tasting and paired with the pastry well. 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 as much as others.

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.

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Loved this one. Light but delicious.
Heather: This beer is like finding a long lost friend. It’s what a beer should be.

Apfelschaumwein is a Sparkling Wine and Apple Liqueur.

Apfelschaumwein 2024
  • Price: $10.50
  • 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.
