To the 23. The historical market in the lower barn district in ebermannstadt in connection with an open sunday in the city center was attended by many visitors despite adverse weather conditions.
Eckart henzler (55) from weismain has his work cut out for him. Under the motto "I’ll carve you your favorite animal" he invites children to his stand to carve american wild animals out of wood and give them the right shape using his carving technique. "Because of the rain showers that come every now and then, i am busy rubbing the wooden figures dry again and again," he explains, tells the 55-year-old, who is attending the historic market for the first time. "The children get a sandpaper from me and were allowed to help with their animal", tells henzler. This allowed the children to identify with the material and then also with their animal. In winter, henzler makes wooden nativity figures, in summer they are wooden animals. What is particularly popular with children? "Contrary to the trend, girls today are increasingly opting for crocodiles and boys for dolphins", reports henzler. At the stand of the beekeepers association ebermannstadt cashier thomas dehler has stand duty. In addition to information about beekeeping, he also sells honey. A total of four types are offered for sale: forest and blood honey, creamy blood honey, summer blood honey and spring blood honey. "Today, people especially like to buy forest and blood honey", betrayal dehler. "The forest and blood honey has a slightly harsher taste", he explains. Right after that comes the creamy blood honey, which is particularly good as a spread on bread and rolls, says the beekeeper.
