The Markthalle Neun is one of the few covered Berlin markets dating back to the late 19th century and survived the bombings that the city has undergone. In 2011, after a major renovation, it reopened to bring in the everyday life of the inhabitants (and also the many tourists!) quality food and many events to share.

To make it famous, however, were not only the high quality products it offers fresh every day, but also the many events that are organized inside it.

The Vinyl & Breakfast Market, which is held on one Sunday every month and which offers a great mix of brunch and vinyls from Berlin’s record labels, the tastings of regional products once a week, children’s cooking workshops, Friday and Saturday’s market with local producers, but especially the Street Food appointment on Thursday, in short, a rich calendar of events every week of the year.

The Street Food Thursday at Markthalle Neun takes place every Thursday from 17 to 22 and has become a very popular event not only among Berliners but also among tourists. It is therefore the protagonist of a crowd of fans who pours inside each week to explore the world-wide cuisine that the market proposes with non-regular guests. Chefs and producers that change from week to week in order to offer flavors, smells and colors from very different culinary cultures.
