I thoroughly enjoyed Hackescher Markt which is an open-air market mainly for fresh produce and fruit, but also great cheeses, sausages, smallgoods, olives? Just an incredible lot of international delicatessen.

I was lucky to be there on the right day because the market - located in the pedestrian area in front of the historic S-Bahn station Hackescher Markt - takes place only twice a week, on Thursdays and Saturdays from 9am until the early afternoon. If you arrive near the end of the trading hours you can make great bargains, as the stallholders try to get rid especially of fresh fruit, so you get a lot of two for one offers.

The market was instated in 2004 after locals had collected lots of signatures for an according petition.

Address: Berlin-Mitte
Directions: S-Bahn S3, 5, 7, 75 and 9, station Hackescher Markt ? and you are there ;-)
