The National Organic Week 2013 will take place all over Denmark. The largest celebration of this kind in the country will find the collaboration of interest groups, businesses, retail and organic enthusiasts in rural areas as well as in large cities.

The Organic Week will be kicked off with the large organic food market ØkoFest in Copenhagen on the weekend of 24 - 25 August. Admission to the food market is free, where food lovers can taste and buy organic food. The variety of organics will be presented from meat, fish, dairy products to juice, ice cream, coffee, beer, chocolate, cereals and fruit and vegetables. Various associations - among those is Organic Denmark - will be present to inform the public on the benefits of organic. The market is accompanied by organic cooking workshops, among other events. A program for children will be offered too.
In Aarhus, the week dedicated to organics will start on 26 August. Organic promotion and growing sales in retail trade, organic growth in commercial kitchens such as canteens, restaurants and institutions, and the growing interest in the organic food label can all be read in Jægergårdsgade. Therefore, it makes perfect sense that the street is the center of the ecological festivities during the week.
At the same time, organic farms all over Denmark will open their barn doors. The festival will end with the famous organic harvest markets on the week-end of 31 August - 1 September, when about 70,000 people are expected.
