Many of these are the place to go on Saturday, not only for Berliners. While most markets serve their purpose to keep the refrigerator filled, others invite you to browse for hours on end. We have put together our favorites.
Particularly this one is part of the largest farmers markets in Berlin. This does not solely come down to its size, but far and foremost for it’s multicultural audience, the great location and the over 100 booths that keep regulars coming back for more.Er gehört zu den ganz großen unter Berlins Wochenmärkten. Especially the culinary sector is unbeatable: Spanish churros, whole fish grilled on a stick, countless strudel varieties, Swiss raclette, and maybe the best Tiramisu in the city.
Most likely winning the price for the best name ist the Saturday market at Kranoldplatz in Neukölln. Yet this is not the only thing going for this market. Here solely produce from small manufacturers and local growers are being offered that love to chat about their products. Game meat from Baruthal Urstromtal, handmade bread from Berlin, or fresh apple juice are only a couple of highlights, you definitely need to try. Along with the freshly made Turkish, Mexican, and Italian finger food that fits to the neighborhood flair.
Whoever has time on Friday, should definitely drop by in Neukölln to explore an oriental atmosphere. Intensive fragrance from spices, tea, and nuts, vocal pitchmen, vibrant colored textiles, and handcrafted products from all over the world give this unique and authentic Bazaar-feel.
