Marheineke Market, Berlin

Marheineke Market, Berlin

Situated on the lively and idyllic Marheinekeplatz, this market hall is as much a landmark of Kreuzberg as the TV Tower is that of Alexanderplatz. It is relatively quiet during a week, not quite "touristy", catering mainly to the locals, seeing the most "action" on Saturday afternoons. There certainly may be some tourists here as well, but overall the authentic "gritty" vibe of the place suggests that it's not too much designated for out-of-towners, serving more like a community forum.

The vast (up to 3,000 m²) space is jam-packed with nearly 50 different shops (meat, vegetable, and fruit stalls, bakers, fishmongers and food booths) offering exclusively fresh organic products and delicacies from Germany and other parts of the world – China, Vietnam, France, Greece, Italy, Spain (stop at Lola for delicious tapas!), Switzerland, Arab countries, etc. – as well as an upstairs with only vegetarian stands. Whatever you're hungry for, you'll likely find it here at generally affordable prices.

Definitely worth a stop for anyone interested in putting their own Berlin foodie tour together!

Tip:
On weekends, there is usually an organic market and a flea market of sorts in the courtyard.

Opening Hours:
Mon-Fri: 8am-8pm; Sat: 8am-6pm
