At Reffen – Copenhagen Street Food gastronomy and entrepreneurship, craft and culture, intimacy and community all come together. With 6000 m2 as a playground 50+ keen chefs and creative artisans share their great passion for food and craftmanship: The new entrepreneurs have their stall for three years while learning how to stand on their own feet and the street food market has a multinational vibe with over 18 nationalities represented. At the same time, it’s a place where local Copenhageners take active part in the development of the area and weekly events bring both locals and foreign visitors together: They all gather to play bingo and quizzes, listen to talks and concerts, do workshops and much more.
Reffen must be a nesting box for new entrepreneurs, give Copenhagen back to the community and be a playground for entrepreneurs, creative artisans and the local heroes: In union we’ll develop the local food scene, new creative projects and overall the new part of Copenhagen that Refshaleøen is. And it will be done in consideration for climate, environment and man. That’s why it is part of Reffen’s vision to become the first street food market which produces its own organic ingredients: Already today a great share is being delivered by the owner and founder of Reffen Jesper Møller from his organic farm Juliangaard.
“Reduce and reuse” are the dogmas which we uphold at Reffen. All stall owners are carefully selected because of their skills, quality and concept and they have to work dedicated in accordance to the dogmas. In return they’ll have a cut in rent if they become certified with the Organic Cuisine Label. Furthermore, the main part of Reffen is built up from recycled materials and the stalls are actually old ship containers. At the same time, we are aware of reducing waste of food and energy consumption, we sort our waste, use sustainable service and take on our social responsibilities.
