markthalle neun

Markthalle Neun, Berlin Markthalle Neun, Berlin Markthalle Neun, Berlin

you have to walk a few minutes from the u-bahn to get to markthalle neun, and then watch out for the entrance, set flush into the flight facades on eisenbahnstrasse, but you will find fresh flowers, organic greens, eggs, and preserves, fresh fish and meat, great tea and coffee, home-made cake – much to while away a friday or saturday morning or afternoon, when the market is open.

there are special events like naschmarkt, hosted by slow food berlin. that the market itself was revived from its rather desolate state to a small but buzzing community, makes it even more special.

i can wholeheartedly recommend the open smoked salmon sandwich with a glass of dry white wine for lunch, but there's also pulled pork (on a platter, or a sandwich), if you can bear waiting until 12.00 pm when their stand officially opens (other stands start serving lunch earlier, so no worries if you're hungry before noon).

commendable: the small stall of the biodynamic farm in weggun. they sell eggs, berries in summer, and preserves. at certain times of the year, they sell organic meat, which you can pre-order at their stall. read more, also about their 'adopt a hen' programme, here.

markthalle IX, eisenbahnstrasse 42/43, 10997 berlin (kreuzberg). market days: friday and saturday, 10-18.00 h. closest u-bahn stops 'goerlitzer bahnhof' or 'schlesisches tor' (both on the u1).

definitely a must on my next visit.
how's the weather treating you these days? we're suffering force-stupid winds and offensively-low temperatures.

I remember when that muddy little patch was a floh markt! The cafe is a sweet little place (bit of a bee menace during certain months) with that ad-libbed, under-the-table, hey-kids-let's-put-on-a-show feeling to it that reeks wonderfully of Golden Age Berlin. We were afraid the new airport was going to wipe the last traces of Golden Age Berlin off the map but the Gods of chaos and incompetency are still with us and the airport won't be open during our lifetime, apparently!

As a chronic pain patient, I would want you to know what I did, what my life was like, what I lost as the result of my pain and subsequent disability. (I think this would be true of most patients regardless of their disorder/disease.) Quality iBeacons Online

Going as soon as in which muddy little patch had been the floh markt! This cafe is really a sweet little spot (bit of a bee risk throughout a number of months) with this ad-libbed, under-the-table, hey-kids-let's-put-on-a-show experiencing for it in which reeks wonderfully regarding Golden Age Berlin. We all were being afraid the new air port would definitely holograms erase the last traces regarding Golden Age Berlin from the map nevertheless the Gods regarding mayhem and also incompetency are still with us as well as the air port defintely won't be wide open throughout our lifetime, evidently!
