i took these photos a while ago - this turkish market on the canal in kreuzberg/neukölln is a riot of colours, scents and sounds. definitely not for the faint-hearted: whole families complete with pram and shopping-trolleys are haggling over boxes of grapes or tomatoes, it's always super crowded. imagine a busy saturday at ikea - and double that. just to give you a vague idea.
if you are brave enough, it's well worth a visit. not only is the choice of fruit, vegetables and flowers hard to match, the place is also a good stop if you are looking for sewing materials (fabrics, buttons, zippers) or colourful everyday kitchen utensils. at the far end of the market, you'll find stalls with organic produce, oriental sweets or savoury foods as well as coffee. a true adventure!
find it on maybachufer, 12047 berlin (neukölln), open tue & fri 11-18.30h (except public holidays).
