Market of Ideas

Handicrafts from all over the world and international dishes

Tollwood’s „Market of Ideas“ stands for organic culinary delights and artisan craftwork from all over the world. It belongs to Tollwood like the theater, concerts, art and environmental activities.

At lovingly designed stalls, visitors can discover fascinating crafts and try organic certified food from around the world. 50 food stalls offer organic food and drinks from over 20 nations, including many vegetarian and vegan treats. Visitors can buy international handicrafts and local goods with a clear conscience: goods that come from the so-called developing countries bear the “fair trade” seal.
