International Food Shopping in Potsdam

If you move to foreign country, you leave behind family members, friends and the culture of your home country. Specific foods can be a huge part of our identity. Food connects us to our home country and can even define how we bond with family members. A smell of your favourite dish cooked at home by your grandmother, for example, can bring a thousand memories to the surface. We would like to help you find the nearest locations where you can purchase ingredients for your country’s cuisine, and bring your dishes to Germany.
