SZIMPLA FARMERS’ MARKET

Founded by Agri Kulti, operating since 2012 in one of the world’s most famous bars in Budapest, the Sunday market in Szimpla represents a new level in linking city and countryside: effective demand could meet quality offer in a spectacular way, with more than 1 million visitors per year. Szimpla Farmers’ Market was awarded by Sozial Marie Prize in 2013 as a unique social innovation in an urban context. Many of the farmers of Szimpla market were recruited during a 2-year field research in Nógrád County performed by the Sustainable Rural Development Course of ELTE Faculty of Human Ecology and Agri Kulti.
