Food­ies Wanted

Where Berlin - - SHOPPING -

One of the last re­main­ing mar­ket halls from the late 19th cen­tury, Mark­thalle Neun was saved from the clutches of com­mer­cial chains and res­ur­rected once again into a bustling food-lovers' des­ti­na­tion. Fri­day and Satur­day see the weekly farm­ers' mar­ket of­fer­ing pri­mar­ily re­gional spe­cial­ties, in­clud­ing fish and meat smok­eries and an on-site craft brew­ery. At Street Food Thurs­day, go be­yond to sam­ple the cos­mopoli­tan cuisines that have be­come city main­stays, such as Amer­i­can bar­be­cue and warm Tai­wanese warm buns stuffed with your choice of meat. The third Sun­day of the month hosts the widely pop­u­lar break­fast mar­ket that lets you taste what it's like to wake up around the globe, with dishes such as eggs Bene­dict and Viet­namese por­ridge. (Come early, be­fore the line wraps around the block.) Once your belly is filled, shop around the stalls selling ev­ery­thing from cook­books to porce­lain teacups.
