Streed Food Thursday
It gets very crowded every Thursday evening (from 5–10 pm) at “Street Food Thursday”. The various stalls compete with each other with their culinary delicacies, but it's the visitors who are the winners. Excerpt from the menu: British pies, Thai tapioca dumplings, Mexican tacos, Allgäu cheese spaetzle or Nigerian FuFu.
The "Breakfast Market" is held every third Sunday of the month. Everything you need to prepare breakfast, from hand-forged knives and cookbooks to coffee roasted in small independent shops, is on offer here. But the market also features all of the delights associated with breakfast, including all sorts of goodies from local producers, cooks and pastry chefs that are available to be tasted all day.
Once a quarter, your childhood dreams finally come true: Markthalle IX becomes a full-on "Naschmarkt" (snack market)! Numerous stalls showcase their sweet and savoury sweets, including cakes, biscuits, chocolates, macaroons, honeys and chocolates. Quality is key and only "good, clean and fair" ingredients in line with the slow-food concept are used here.
Coffee, Cheese, Sausages and Beer
Besides the events already named, Market Hall Nine hosts food festivals like "Stadt Land Food", taking place every two years, as well as the "Berlin Coffee Festival", the "Cheese Festival" and the "Wurst&Bier" (Sausages and Beer).
