farmers' market seelower strasse

to whoever had the idea of having a farmers' market on seelower strasse: thank you! that certainly was an inspired move and a real alternative to the crowded market on kollwitzplatz.

i love strolling down the - still tiny - market, buying organic heirloom tomatoes, red chard, apples, jam and flowers. have a chat with the stall holders and round it all up with an armful of beautiful flowers and a coffee at sgaminegg, right next to the stalls, marvelling at my finds.

if you happen to live in the neighbourhood or visit prenzlauer berg: do come here. every customer is appreciated and we need markets like this!

oh, and before i forget - there are also stalls selling fresh fish, others for meat or for cheese. at sgaminegg, you can also have lunch, and buy fresh bread and wine.

famers' market on seelower strasse, sat 10.00-16.00 h

find it here: seelower strasse (between daenenstrasse and schivelbeiner strasse), prenzlauer berg, 10439 berlin. public transport: schoenhauser allee, walk into daenenstrasse, take the first street to the right and you're there. less than 5 mins walk from the station.

I love farmers markets. They are way to rare here. Remember the ones in Berlin and Paris, it's such a joy to stroll, smell, taste and buy some to make lunch or dinner from.
Lucky you! :)

Oh I'm so glad you posted this. It's wonderful, isn't it? I can't believe we finally have something like this in the neighborhood. PS: I owe you an email! Chalk it down to Umzugsdemenz -- I just realized I saved what I wrote as a draft.

Did you take your spoils and go for a picnic? (I assume that is your yellow basket with the camembert?)

Gorgeous photos! Markets are so fun. We have a small Saturday morning market here, and I just love all the interesting things they sell.

Love the "Leihstand" photo! I used to live on Maybachufer - the farmer's market was in front of our door. These lovely photos bring back great memories...
