Bauernmarkt: Farmer’s Market Menu & Review (2023 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.

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 2023 Baurenmarkt must-trys, photos, full reviews, and ratings below.

Photos & Reviews

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 Pancake Applesauce Bauernmarkt
  • Price: $5.00
  • 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.
Allyson: The potato pancakes are well down. The applesauce is an interesting combo but you can’t go wrong with the potato pancakes.

Potato Pancake with Caramelized Ham

Similar to the plant-based version, but instead this potato pancake is served with caramelized ham, onions, and herb sour cream.

Potato Pancake With Ham Bauernmarkt
  • Price: $5.25
  • Special Diets: Gluten-Friendly
  • Rating: 3.7/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Much prefer this savory potato pancake. Better texture and flavors.
Heather: Very tasty I’m just a little thrown off by the uniform size of the ham. That’s weird.
Felicia: This is okay. Potato pancake is a lot like hash browns. The topping doesn’t add much and the sour cream is cold which doesn’t go well with the hot food. Just fine.

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 Bauernmarkt
  • Price: $5.75
  • 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 Bauernmarkt
  • 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.
Allyson: The pastry is nice and flaky, but I wanted the cheese to be melted a little bit more. It’s good but nothing to rave about.

Flensburger Dunkel

This beer is a Munich-style Dunkel that is brewed by Flensburger Brauerei in Germany. This is a new 2023 Festival beer.
Note: this drink is also available in a flight.

Flensburger Dunkel Bauernmarkt
  • Price: $5.50 (6 oz) / $9.50 (12 oz)
  • Made with alcohol? Yes
  • Rating: 3.8/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Light, enjoy this option
Heather: Nice beer flavor. Nothing special, but a good option if you just want a good beer.
Felicia: Great dunkel that is full of flavor. Overall a fun and good flight.
Allyson: A good dunkel with a good flavor.

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.

Premium Pils Bauernmarkt
  • Price: $5.50 (6 oz) / $9.50 (12 oz)
  • Made with alcohol? Yes
  • Rating: 3.3/5

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.
Allyson: Nothing fantastic. Tastes like your typical Pilsner. Not impressive.

Stiegl Brewery Radler Raspberry

The Radler Raspberry is a fruity beer brewed by Stiegl Brewery in Salzburg, Austria.
Note: this drink is also available in a flight.

Raspberry Radler Bauernmarkt
  • Price: $5.50 (6 oz) / $9.50 (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.
Allyson: This was my favorite drink at this booth but some might think it tastes too much like cough syrup (I didn’t). It has a good raspberry flavor.


Apfelschaumwein is a Sparkling Wine and Apple Liqueur.

Apfelschaumwein Bauernmarkt
  • Price: $10.00
  • 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.
Allyson: Way too sweet. Definitely avoid if you’re not a sweet person. It’s kind of gross, if I’m being honest.
