Majmarked it such a cozy medieval event. It is framed as a medieval marked – everyone know each other because they all start the season here every year. They are a really welcoming community.
I just realised that I never put a post up on this year’s Majmarked (our home marked). I better do something about that.
We were joined by our good friends Kirstine and Michael and their three kids (10, 10 and 13 years old respectably). It was their first marked, so they were there to figure out if they wanted to do the marked thing – they were pretty sure they did. It was absolutely wonderful to be going with friends and have someone to share the experience with.
We had a wonderful time and sold almost all of our wine. The luthendrank sold especially well and it was really fun talking to people about medieval and renaissance wine. We have a few antidotes and a bit of history we share with potential buyers. We had fun cooking medieval inspired food as well as hanging out with our friends – new and old. At Saturday evening we ended up having a small party with some of the new people we meat at the event.
Impressions from the marked
The first evening in camp
Friday morning in camp
Our camp kitchen – it’s not really authentic, but as we can’t dig a firepit at most marked – this is our solution.
All the kitchen gear – we definatly had too much with us, but I just can’t get enough of the beautiful cookery.
The twins are cooking flatbread
Kasper and I in full dress up. We feel quite spiffy.
Kirstine and Michael in their beautiful gear.
Our stall selling our mulled wine
The sales went very well
One of the local farmers always brings a cow and some very young calves. You can even milk the cow – I got a bit of milk for my tea at some point.
Cooking an apple over the fire
Cooking wonderful pancakes
It gets quite dark outside the tent, but inside is a wonderful light cave
I of course admired other people’s camps
I do have a bad case of camp envy
Saturday we cooked rabbit – both as a stew-thing and as bbq’ed
