Türkischer Markt am Maybachufer
Nearest underground station Schönleinstrasse (look for the river or simply follow the crowds)
This market is what I love as a traveler-finding those unexpected, unplanned for treasures that turn out to make your day. Our trip to this market was the result of one of those ‘what are we going to do today’ chats at a coffeeshop over breakfast. Located in Neukölln, this market was interesting not only because of all of the knick-knacks, food stuffs and low (and often negotiable) prices (another good reason to venture of the tourist path) but for the people watching.
Here is a photo wrap up of the market:
Letting you know where you are.
Affordable vegetables are all throughout the market. Great place to pick up items for a picnic.
The market had several fish and seafood stalls-all with relatively fresh fish. Remember, the mark of fresh fish-clear eyes, shiny-not slimy skin and no fishy smell.
While many of the market stalls had Turkish and other “ethnic” foods for sale, this one had several different types of cheeses.
Stalls and stalls of wonderful Turkish breads.
There were open stacks of brined wine leaves all over the place.
A band was playing at the opposite end of the market.
A small crowd assembled to listen while eating some snacks from the market.
One of the food stalls. This place had a line around the corner-and I was too impatient to wait-so I didn’t get to try it. I will next time I am in Berlin.
