Markthalle Neun – A market for all

This is one of the cherries on top of the Berlin city sundae. It’s a historic market place that is finally finding its way into modern Berlin life. After getting dangerously close to becoming part of a German supermarket giant, it was rescued by neighborhood locals to make it into an inclusive marketplace representative of the city’s bountiful cultural population and young leader of the slow food movement.

It’s not only a market with delectable options for the pickiest of eaters but also a meeting place for real-time education about ethical and sustainable food production. 

It’s a lovely spot to hang out in be it winter or summer. The vegetables are of the highest quality and the food options, exciting. Indulge in a heavenly tofu burger like no other at Sunday burgers, try the mouth-watering smoked fish at Glut und Späne (carefully selected based on the recommended list from the World Wildlife Fund), dig into meat or vegetarian main courses at the Kantine or sit back and savour an aromatic pale ale at Heidenpeters. For the meat lovers out there, there are plenty of options including the famous pulled pork sandwiches at Big Stuff Barbecue. So whatever your fancy, it’s sure not to disappoint.

For a quiet walk and a nice chat with the vendors I visit on a Friday. But Saturdays are happy and lively, as well as the ever-so-popular Street food Thursdays from 17:00 – 22:00.
