Street food, something most Danes traditionally know from abroad, has become increasingly popular in the Danish capital in recent years. However, open-air markets are still a rarity, and that is one of the reasons why Kødbyens Mad & Marked has quickly become Copenhagen’s coolest summer attraction. “Once summer finally arrives, all Copenhageners flock outside. It’s an amazing feeling and it was this buzzy urban summer atmosphere that generated the idea for the market,” explains marketing manager Lea Emilie Mosegaard. “We wanted to create a cool open-air market in a raw, urban atmosphere, a place where people could get together, smell, taste and feel the food, and the setting here in the meatpacking district was just perfect for that.”
