The Indoor Market - freshness in retro style

Just a few steps from shop windows displaying fashion collections on the second floor is The Indoor Market, reviving the atmosphere of a 19th century market with some traditional products of our grandmothers, the quality of fresh natural foods, the taste of the old recipes and the comfort of the setting of past centuries.

Among the atmosphere of the old town square near a real fountain neat shops offer 365 days a year on their stands halal meat, over 500 types of wines and spirits, coffee, fragrant herbs and medicinal teas, while the stalls around overflow with fresh fruits and vegetables, honey and delicious nuts. Alongside these operates a culinary shop for vegan and vegetarian foods, while in the bakery skilled craftsmen make bread and cakes by a technology, proven centuries ago.

Bakery
The Indoor Market is the second home of the Boutique Bakery, making bread on the spot by a 19th century technology - without any chemical additives, kneaded with natural yeasts and baked on a hot plate. Besides popular types of bread from white, dark and wholegrain flour, the bakery offers products from yellow flours and bread from the ancient variety of wheat einkorn.

Lovers of sweets can choose from a variety of sweets prepared by recipes collected from around the world and made with high quality products of the highest grade. The products are prepared on the spot in front of customers and are tasted by clients prior to purchase.


Lemas Halal meat
Lamb and veal from animals ritually prepared according to the canons of Islam can now be bought from the indoor market. Muslim demands are met also by all products in the Lemas Halal store. Regardless of which area of Bulgaria the animals were bred, all fresh and chilled meat, the ready minced meat and the mince prepared in front of customers, as well as all other items from the shop windows and shelves are certified as "halal".

However, the followers of Allah will hardly be the only ones tempted by the offered culinary diversity, among which one can find Adana kebab, oriental sausage and various oriental meatballs.


Culinary abundance for vegetarians and vegans
The store for vegetarian and vegan foods at the Indoor market sells take-away dishes made entirely with vegetarian products. Much of the menu is consistent with the requirements of vegans who exclude not only meat but also fish, seafood, eggs and dairy products, and even honey, from their diet.

Soups, appetizers, salads, main dishes and desserts are made on site, most of them follow old and long forgotten Bulgarian recipes. For the preparaion of other meals the experience of little-known traditions is borrowed, but in any case the technology of processing strictly complies with the requirements of vegetarian cuisine.

Vegetarian "tripe soup" vegan "chops", peppers stuffed with beans, bulgur and chickpeas, vegetarian Russian salad and a whole range of vegan cakes are only a small part of the range of the culinary shop at the indoor market.

The teas and herbs of the Droga shop
Loose teas and tea accessories, spices and herbs in bulk, dried and packkaged so as to preserve their healing ingredients, nuts and dried fruit - all this you will find in the Droga shop at the indoor market. Moreover, here you can stock up with bio- and superfoods and supplements that do not pump your muscles but keep you healthy.

Besides the fruits of the powerful antioxidant goji berry, you will also find here the less popular in Bulgaria but widely consumed worldwide seeds of the "traveling Indian food" Chia. The little black and white seeds were among the main products used by the Incas, Mayas, Aztecs and many other tribes from the southwestern part of America because of the incredible energy with which they fuel the body.

Chia is also the favorite food of people on a diet because when added to dishes, it swells and fills the stomach, replacing the calories and fat without changing the taste of the dishes. World luminaries in dietetics claim that even if you're not on a diet, you can easily reduce calories by half by enrihing your food with Chia.

Santa Fe Coffee
32 kinds of coffee, delivered from all corners of Latin America, Southeast Asia and Africa, freshly roasted and ground just prior to take home. This is the tempting offer of the Santa Fe coffee shop at the indoor market.

To balance it and increase the caffeine content you can mix it with  robusta coffee from Ivory Coast.
