In the first months after the opening, the main focus was on the assortment -i.e. organic products and regional fresh produce. A total of 198 suppliers from the surrounding area bring their products to the 14 stores of the merchants. The hallmark of the vegetable department is the vertical positioning of goods in glass cabinets. Some of the herbs and greens are growing here, on the spot, in the market. This has been made possible by a partnership with the internationally successful start-up company InFarm from Berlin.

On request, the customer can bring along a reusable container for shopping at the fresh food counters, have their goods packaged in it, thus helping to reduce waste packaging.
