Markthalle Neun Berlin

My friend Keith took me to this amazing market hall that has just re-opened after years of being empty.  It’s so cool and old and now filled with artisanal food people it makes me want to move in next store!

It’s very late here – I’m going to bed – more on this tomorrow.  In the meanwhile check out their site!

The old stalls are amazing – there is some new building the center of the market but the periphery is still very much in tact

A lot of wine stores here sell bulk wine and spirits so you can bring your bottle back and refill it.


The Raclette looked so delicious.  In a way this reminded me a little bit of the New Amsterdam market in NYC – people selling produce, meat and fish along with prepared and preserved foods

Pink mushrooms – I’d never seen these before

Soluna has a shop in Kruezberg and is considered by many here to be the some of the best bread in Berlin.

Great historic pictures of the market over the years.

About urbanfoodguy

I'm a self taught cook with a dedication to buying and eating food that is as humanely and sustainably raised as possible. Which is why in addition to recipes you will see a lot of environmental/political reporting here. I started cooking when I was about 6, it's something I always loved to do. Watching Graham Kerr - aka "The Galloping Gourmet" - was what got me started and I have never really looked back. Over the years I've been a private chef, a caterer, and a food stylist for magazines such as Bon Appétit, Food & Wine, Real Simple, Oprah, Martha Stewart's Everyday Food and many more. I've also worked in the prep kitchen for the Food Network on the Bobby Flay and Paula Deen shows. Now I work at home in my kitchen sharing with you here recipes that I create or that other people have created that inspire me and I think you will like. I love my neighborhood (the Lower East Side of Manhattan) and I love to travel. Because NYC is such a big place I tend to focus mostly on my 'hood and the ones that are close by: The East Village, Bowery, Chinatown and Williamsburg. My love of travel has no limits really, I'm always ready to get on a plane. I was lucky enough to have a business for many years that allowed me to spend a lot of time in South East Asia. These days I've been spending time in Mexico, Germany, Canada and the West Coast of the U.S., but check back you never know where I might end up. I do consulting, cooking classes, and freelance lifestyle writing so if you are interested please send me a note: urbanfoodguy@gmail.com
