The unforgettable 8th season!
Like many other aspects of our lives, this year’s Odprta kuhna was very special. In brief, we are immensely grateful to be able to carry it out at all.
In 2020, we met at Pogačarjev square 15 times while 48 partners joined the Odprta kuhna’s team during the season. We enjoyed the marvellous offer of well known and popular vendors but were also charmed by seven new eateries. We are glad to welcome them in our midst.
We are proud to achieve an important milestone. Despite the situation, we were able to shape Odprta kuhna as an example of a sustainable food market that provides the offer solely in biodegradable and recyclable materials. We were also able to adapt to the new circumstances by offering the option of cashless payment.
In its 8th season, Odprta kuhna continued successful collaboration with the professional and kind teams of Municipality of Ljubljana, JP LPT and Voka Snaga. We also reduced the amount of leftover food by handing out the meals to those in need with the help of Slovenska filantropija organisation.
It was great to see the city centre fill up with life again after the mellow spring months. We were touched by all of you who proved that Odprta kuhna’s crowd forms a caring, happy and most importantly responsible community, following all the necessary precautions regarding this year's corona season and providing a safe experience for all. Please, take care of yourself and your loved ones hereafter as well.
So, our sincere thanks go out to our dear vendors from near and far, all the companies and organisations with whom we look forward cooperate in the seasons to come, the extended team of Odprta kuhna, and mostly you, dear visitors, who made it all possible.
The time has come to sharpen our minds and mull over some new ideas. We promise to return - bigger, stronger and better than ever before.
Thank you for being with us.
