Every second Saturday within the premises of the old stable in Gdynia’s Kolibki district regional producers and experts of ecological foods gather during a small and friendly market, Jadłostajnia.
There are several markets with ecological or low-processed foods that function in the area of Tricity. They all share a similar formula – on different days of week and in different places producers set up their stands and sell their goods. Jadłostajnia market takes place every second Saturday stands out from the crowd with its unique location: the historical interior of the former stable in the palace and park complex in Kolibki, Gdynia.
The place remembers king Jan III Sobieski, and his wife Mary for whom the monarch had the complex adapted, turning it from a knight’s manor into a noble residence. The palace and the stable were built only in the second half of the 19th century, where the property had its Renaissance. Currently, the complex is excluded from everyday use. From time to time, they host artistic events and, regularly, the said gatherings of experts and amateurs of ecological food produce – Jadłostajnia.
The market is small, even intimate – there are only several producers present in the stable hall. However, they are chosen in a way that enables to purchase products from virtually almost any category. Available products range from fresh cold cuts, from a small smokery, from animals bred on a small farm, to goat cheeses, such as those from Malinowy Chruśniak farm. Those are prepared with bear’s garlic or black cumin. The beekeeper from Pasieka Wędrowna apiary from Potęgowo will treat us to lime and flower honey and just a few steps away we’ll be able to stock up on home made sourdough bread and fruit and vegetables grown using natural methods only. There is even a producer offering only preserves from ecological garlic, which he has grown on his farm for many years.
If you want to stock up on alcohol, Jadłostajnia is the place to be as well. The craft Slavic Cider (Cydr Słowiańki) comes in several flavours, including the rare strawberry, raspberry and gooseberry. Vin-Kon company from Konin offers wines made of different fruit: rowan, aronia (chokeberry), plums or dog-rose. All of them are prepared according to traditional, home methods. The next stand, run by the Cameleon company from POznań, offers oil pressed from poppy seed, flax, fenugreek or milk thistle.
Jadłostajnia invites you with regional products from all around Poland, not only from Pomorskie. For those looking for new flavours and most of all those willing to eat healthy, it’s an obligatory shopping spot and a pleasant alternative to supermarkets.
