On the eve of World War II, Berlin had 14 major municipally built inner-city neighborhood food markets, often handsome Victorian structures of brick, cast iron, and glass. After falling out of favor, those that survived World War II are being renovated and relaunched, and this one, in the winningly funky Kreuzberg district and commonly known as "Neun" (nine), is especially beloved by Berliners. The all-organic market has a terrific collection of bakers, butchers, cheese-and-dairy merchants, fishmongers, and specialty stalls like Das Berliner Frühstück (The Berliner Breakfast), which sells 12 kinds of organic muesli. The Street Food Thursdays (5 p.m.–10 p.m.) held at the market have become a local institution.
Open Mon-Wed: 8am-6pm; Thurs: 8am-10pm; Fri-Sat: 8am-8pm; closed Sunday
