Westmarket - Review
Located in Vesterbro, the Westmarket is a popular haunt for foodies that want to explore more than what a typical restaurant menu has to offer. You will be surprised at just how much finesse goes into these dishes- offering everything from 5 star quality, gourmet food to the local favourites like fish and chips, smoked meat, cinnamon rolls, cakes and pastries and everything else that spells comfort. The best thing about the place is its multi-cuisine variety- where can have a taco, a burger, a coffee and a steak and end it all with a loving serving of your favourite dessert!
The live music adds to the charm of the place and if you love Jazz, you will love the laid back yet vibrant pulse of the Westmarket.
Some of the places to not miss when here are Guilty (known for its desserts), Selma (known for its Scandinavian flavours), Kød & Bajer (try the Reindeer tongue, smoked Elk heart) and the Khorn Bakery (famous for its Cinnamon rolls).
- Bakeries & cafes: open from 8.00 am – 7.00 pm
- Food stalls: open from 10:00 am - 10:00 pm

Westmarket, Copenhagen Reviews
Unfortunately Westmarket is almost completely shut down. Only five of the possible 60 food stalls are currently occupied. That is the reason why I recommend not going there
This is a truly sad story. It seems that the establishment of WestMarket has been driven, as so many things in this broken economic system, by greed and desire to reap as much money as possible in the shortest time possible. After the completion, us Vesterbroans have been hopeful, that the area has gained a market, where we would get an access to fresh food produce from local farmers and producers. Unfortunately, WestMarket has instead been set up as an upscale food court in a borough already saturated by small food and beverage businesses. Due to extremely high prices in rent, and other unreasonable conditions, most of the business that established their venues in Westmarket are big chains and franchises that already dominate much of Copenhagen hospitality sector. There was little help for small retailers to open shops and stands with fish, meat, delicacies, fruits and vegetables, etc., which would establish a steady flow of visitors, potentially exposing restaurants in the food court area. All of them have closed by now, leaving many of them with a crushing contract that will burden them for years to come. Two stars only because of the few remaining venues that are still fighting, some of them having an exceptional offer and rigid dedication. If it wasn't for them this rating would have gone into negative stars. Greed is the source of all evil.
Could be way better, as it is seems a bit depressing, almost a metro mall type of place: very dark entrance, half the stores are closed. Go here if you really want to taste a particular quite bite. Better try any other fantastic gastronomy from Copenhagen or a (luckily) sunny terrace!
Everything seemed closed, randomly, so expect maybe 50% open when you go. I didn't eat, just walked thru. Seems it has potential but hasn't really developed yet. Worth checking out regardless.
Some good food stalls, but I imagine it will be closed soon. Most of the stalls are closed.
