Why locals love it

Opened in 1891 as one of 14 market halls built to supply Berlin with fresh groceries, this architectural gem has survived the war and then almost fell victim to dumping-price shops. A citizens' organisation recently decided to take over and it's slowly becoming THE place to go for conscious and fresh shopping.

Why you should visit it

Apart from being interesting to look at, the hallway to the toilet is lined with a comprehensive history of the market hall. Furthermore, there's a street kitchen and cafe open every day from 12:00 to 16:00. Markets are held on Friday and Saturday.

Special tip

Check out Street Food Thursday as well as their calender: They often have special events in the weekends, usually around organic/fair trade shopping.

I swung by Markthalle IX for Street Food Thursday at around 8 pm. I was almost put off by the insane crowds (the experience brought back memories of navigating the streets of New Delhi), but took a deep breath and dived in. Unable to see most of what was on offer because of the swarming mass of people, I randomly jumped in a very long line for some Taiwanese bao. And it was totally worth the wait. Two pieces of advice: arrive early and make a beeline for the bao.
