POSTCITY will be welcoming farmers on Saturday. These men and women will be bringing along regional, organic products that festivalgoers can taste and, if they like, purchase. In addition to sustainably produced foodstuffs, the focus here is on alternative future agricultural scenarios in which technological innovations play an essential role.
The organic farmers’ market at Ars Electronica will be staged by members of BIO AUSTRIA, Europe’s largest organic agricultural association. Market visitors can buy organic foodstuffs directly from the producers and taste-test a whole smorgasbord of delicacies—organic ice cream from Putzleinsdorf, vegetarian seitan from Biohof Auger in Sarmingstein, edible oils refined with poppy, hemp, thistle and sunflowers in Neukirchen, home-distilled spirits from Biohof Thauerböck, and lots of other delicacies made right here in Upper Austria. And this is also the perfect place to engage in informative conversations about healthy, sustainable nutrition.
