Copenhagen got a bit more fabulous in September 2011 with the opening of its Torvehallerne Market on Israels Square. Torvehallerne market is an upscale, culinary emporium which is spread across two buildings and houses a mix of local delicacies and foreign goods.
From fish, and meat, to bakeries and coffee and everything in between, this new food market, in a city that is increasingly being recognized for its cuisine, is a welcomed addition to the area that was once known for pigeons and cars. Come to think of it, Prague could do with one of these! Prague architects and developers take note.
I am super excited about Torvehallerne, and when I eventually travel to Copenhagen, the market will be tops on my list of places to visit. If you are interested in reading what others are saying about Torvehallerne, there are some good reviews in the New York Times Travel Section, 60×80, The Daily Meal and CPH Private Guide.
