// THE GREEN MARKET BERLIN: THOUGHTS OF A VEGAN CHANGE MAKER

This is a very special day - why? Because we are at episode NO 10 of the GreenMe Berlin podcast, yeah! For some it may sound little, but for me it’s a real milestone. I had no idea if I could do this, if I could keep it up, if anyone would listen at all. Especially cause I’m only doing one episode per month - but man, it’s at nearly 2500 downloads now.

Now what’s happening on todays’ show? Well, what would be more fitting to celebrate this special episode than getting the organizer of a very, very unique event in Berlin in front of the mic? It’s Stefanie from the Green Market Berlin!

The Green Market is Berlin's first and no. 1 green lifestyle market. It’s running 4 times a year, one for each season and this time, it moves to a brand new location (which we gonna tell you more about in a bit). Usually, the event draws in around 3000 people per day (which could rise quite a lot this year). There'll be around 60 vendors: a whole world full of original vegan street food, fashion, cosmetics, crafts, creative gifts, music, live presentations, workshops, cooking shows, film screenings and so much more. Promise, there’s no activism, no preaching - just heaps of flavor explosions, beautiful products and positive people. 

I’m so excited to have the hero behind it all on the show today. Stefanie Witt, a super energetic Berliner. With a big portion of passion, she built up an incredible platform for the Berlin green scene. She’s bringing together consumers with small scale producers, so we can all learn and grow. We talked about heaps of exciting things...

IN THIS EPISODE, YOU'LL LEARN MORE ABOUT:

  • What’s new for the summer market & why Steffi is taking a big risk with that
  • Why you need to choose your words wisely to get people excited for vegan products
  • Some books and films you should definitely watch to learn about food and our planet
  • Why she says no to big brands and helps small businesses instead
  • How to stay cool in a crisis moment & why you sometimes just need to take the risk
  • Why Berlin is a vegan paradise
  • Why there’s always a way, even if others tell you it won’t work
  • A special announcement on what’s next (apart from the Green Market)

Now, enough with all the pre-talk! Time to finally introduce you to Stefanie and the Green Market Berlin - here we go, let’s start the show...
