Bricks, metal arches and gourmet exploration in good company. On Thursdays, Markthalle Neun is the must-visit neo-market that delights all foodies – from Berlin and beyond – with street food as cosmopolitan as its guests. On the menu: pretzels, ice cream, risotto and Thai curry. But why choose? The rest of the week, take your pick from natural wines and visit the fishmongers, bakers, cheesemakers and many more.
