Artisan market – the second Sunday of every month at the Sárga Borház Restaurant on the Disznókő estate
It’s spring in the Tokaj Wine Region! Come and celebrate – and see a way to commemorate the Hungarian national holiday, the 1848 revolution of March 15th. There will be revolutionary and spring poems, stilt performers, horse riding and the Sárga Borház spring market menu packed with fresh spring greens.
On market day the popular artisan market arrives to animate the Sárga Borház Restaurant and the Disznókő estate. The Tokaj-Hegyalja Market has become a true meeting place for locals and tourists curious about the handmade products brought by 60 local craftsmen and women, the perfect chance to discover the local cheeses and cured meats, jams and honeys, vinegars and oils, (organic) fruits and vegetables, chocolates and homemade cakes just like Grandma used to make… (And often it is a grandma who makes them – and she has very sparkly eyes! As well as all manner of crafts of the highest quality: jewellery, clothes, wooden toys and tools, pottery, soap, – and very much more!
Meet local artisans – they really are local. They arrived from around Borsod-Abaúj-Zemplén County plus a 40km radius, bringing products they have created. It’s a great opportunity to discover the treasures here in the historic Tokaj Wine Region, and meet their skilled creators. The perfect opportunity to find out more about the products, whether they be artisan cheeses matured in a cellar nearby or traditional mangalica pork sausages from the “Hungarian hairy pigs” who live in a forest and have a mud bath all to themselves! Or perhaps you’d like organic pumpkin seed oil and Tokaj wine vinegar to make your salads more exciting. Perhaps a designer bag – hand-sewn patchwork or top quality leather? Beautifully turned wooden trains? An expressive puppet? Fragrant soaps? Rag rugs, pottery and fun signs. There’s a great choice for all.
Not only products … Live music, exhibitions, talks, seasonal market menu at the Sárga Borház Restaurant and – we are in the Tokaj Wine Region! – guided tours around the Disznókő estate and winery as well as thematic wine tastings. This is a highlight of the month in the Tokaj Wine Region.
And the warmth of the Sárga Borház Restaurant makes this top restaurant a great place to relax with friends. Or, if the sun still has enough strength, then on the terrace.
Hope to meet you there soon so you can taste for yourself the delights on offer!
How to find it? The Disznókő estate lies along the road 37 and starts by the Mád/Mezőzombor roundabout.
