I always visit Copenhagen's new market, Torvehallerne, when I'm in Denmark. It is the perfect place for a lover of slow living.

Torvehallerne are divided into two buildings which you find on Israels Plads about 100 metres from Nørreport station. Years ago this square actually hosted a big outdoor market, the so called Grønttorvet ("The Green Square"), so the location couldn't be more appropriate.

Torvehallerne however differs a lot from other indoor markets, since this place is more what I would call a gastronomic mall. In here you will find some of the most famous cafes and gastronomy shops of Copenhagen and many products are organic.

In the first building you mainly find cafes, bakeries, sweet things such as chocolate and cakes, coffee shops etc. In the second building you find all the places that sell actual meals and outdoor in the square you can buy fresh flowers, vegetables and fruits.

On days with nice weather I suggest you buy your food at the market and find yourself a place in the square between the two buildings where you can sit and enjoy your lunch, tapas and a glass of wine, dinner of just a cup of coffee. 

For more info visit the website of Torvehallerne.
