Got milk? Fresh Milk Vending Machines Arrive in Krakow

The sign on the machines says: ‘Milk straight from the cow’ – but don’t worry, the cows remain at home on their farm in Jędrzejów; it’s only the milk that’s inside the machines.

These are the first two ‘Mlekomats’ in Krakow, at Nowy Kleparz and Borek Fałęcki. They contain milk from the Jędrzejów herd of cows, which can be bought, bottle and all, in minutes.

The bottles cost a złoty for the smallest, and to fill them costs 2ł (0.5l) or 3.50zł (1l). The milk is unpasteurised and over four per cent fat.

A spokesman for the firm EcoDolina, which is behind the machines, said two more were planned for Krakow. They will be in Kazimierz, and Wola Justowska.

    You forgot to say that this is unpasteurised milk! Which makes Krakow one of the most advanced cities in this regard – in New York, raw milk fans have to import it into the city surreptitiously and in London it’s not much better. Well done Krakow!

    I tried it last weekend. It’s the best milk I’ve had in the city.
