This weekend we attended our first ever medieval market as part of the reenactors of the event, rather than as part of the public. We sold our spiced wine (lutendranck & hypocras) in our stall, that was a part of a larger camp, which we shared with a friend and his family. It was a bit crowded but it was fun and we had a great time. We sold most of our wine, so we were very happy about that.
Before the event I had cooked a number of hand pies for lunch. For dinner we made a quick vegetable soup and grilled some lamb sausages – which worked great – especially the soup. I will write-up the recipes for both later, but I forgot to take a picture of the soup.
Photos by me, my dad, my mom and my uncle.

We both maned our stall throughout the day. Sometimes alone and sometimes together

The stall and camp
We shared the camp with a friend and his family. He sold homemade honey and they sold other homemade products.
The girls made leve bread for the samples of honey that the people we camped with sold

Around noon a man was sleeping on a cow at the marked – yes that seriously happened. People were able to milk the cow – when he wasn’t sleeping on it.
There are so many kids at the marked in garb – it is wonderful
