Markets

Much more than just a place to shop, Berlin's markets are a meeting place. A close-knit community of traders and customers who have come to know and love the personal contact that you simply do not get in the supermarkets. There are many different markets attracting both locals and visitors practically every day of the week. There's everything you could possibly think of: from traditional cobblers to organically grown vegetables from the surrounding region or tender free-range lamb. In December, a large number of Berlin Christmas Markets completes the range of markets.
