Harvest Market is part of the Redesign Group with a view to enhancing local production, the Harvest market concept is a cafeteria-style restaurant with multiple points of sale kiosks serving everything from sandwiches, cheese, pizza, burgers and more to include alcohol. It was launched at the Belfast, Dublin and Amsterdam Schiphol airports, and is ready for an expansion to several other European airports. It reproduces a typical urban street market, where travelers can stroll and choose local products, fresh seasonal products like Dutch cheese, organic meat and fruits and vegetables direct from local suppliers. The Harvest Market menus are changed frequently, following the seasons, always with a strong emphasis on fresh and healthy ingredients and, whenever possible, organic. Schiphol Amsterdam airport handles more than 45 million passengers every year, and is the 4th in the ranking of Europe’s most trafficked airports, making this Harvest Market location on the of the busiest.

I was on a layover at Schiphol and though just leaving the United States where hamburgers are a mainstay to fast food American cuisine, I bypassed the sandwich section of the market and settled for the CMB Hamburger with bacon and cheddar cheese, and a Heineken beer. Normally I like my hamburger cooked from medium-rare to medium, but that option was not given and all meat had to be cooked well done. The beef did lack spice with only a small amount in taste, and the texture was bold from the organic grass-fed beef with a nice flavor going well with the beer. The dish was presented with house cut French fries and typical lettuce and tomato accompaniments.

The burger itself for being cooked well done was one of the more expensive burgers I had ever bought, but taking into account that it was an airport restaurant, the price does seem to go up. I just wish that I could have gotten more for my money. Over the experience was pleasant.
