The Story of Market

Christine Fichtl

Welcome to warm weather! This is the season of new beginnings, growth, and gathering together around the neighborhood for parties, potlucks, and good times. It's these wonderful experiences that inspired me to create Market.

Way Before APOTHEKE...

Years ago, I spent my summers on a farm in the Hamptons with my husband Sebastian. While he worked long shifts as a chef and I grinded away as a personal assistant, we found peace from our stressful jobs by growing fresh fruits and vegetables, planning parties for our friends and neighbors, and taking long drives down summer roads surrounded by fresh air and fresh food.

We Wanted to Capture Those Little Moments of Joy.

Now, as a proud city girl, I do all I can to capture those little moments of nature and joy brought about by gathering around the dinner table and cooking a meal with people I love. Every sunny weekend I bring my kids to the gorgeous farmers markets in Brooklyn, and every month we invite our neighbors over to try Sebastian's new recipes.

A Recipe in Every Box.

As I sat crafting our new scents, all I could think about were Sebastian's favorite, go-to dinners. Fennel salads, summer gazpachos, and adorable little frozen lemonades. It only felt natural that I shared a recipe in each box.

Community is What We Really Need Right Now.

It's the key to happy, healthy life. Spending time with our friends and families lets us slow down and enjoy the little things we miss so often. Gathering like this reduces stress, gets us active, and builds important relationships. I wanted our new Market collection to inspire you to come together with friends, family, acquaintances, lovers, and neighbors and share something special: a home cooked meal, joyful conversation, and maybe a glass of wine or two. 

I find myself reminiscing about long nights with friends, and now I want to share those moments with you.

Grab a Tomato Tarragon candle (or for the real foodies- Purple Basil!) and try one of our delicious recipes printed on the inside of your box with your best friend. I promise you'll feel refreshed, renewed, and ready for summer in no time.
