An “ecomarket” has been held every Thursday since 1996 on the Kollwitzplatz in Prenzlauer Berg. There are now more than 50 vendors offering organic produce. The goods on offer range from fruit and vegetables from local Brandenburg farmers to handicrafts, children’s clothing, jewellery and even stalls offering to serve you lunch. An unusual feature of the event is that it begins at noon, to guarantee that the farmers can harvest their products and bring them for sale on the same day. Kollwitzplatz also has a Saturday market from 8.30 am, which also has mainly, though not entirely, organic produce.
