Fodor's Expert Review Markthalle Neun
Thanks to the efforts of local activists, this century-old market hall (sometimes spelled Markthalle IX) was saved from becoming a chain supermarket and instead turned into a center for local food vendors, chefs, wine dealers, and brewers. Tuesday to Saturday, popular Big Stuff Smoked BBQ sells scrumptious meat samplers and pulled pork sandwiches next to Glut & Späne, where you can find smoked fish platters and ceviche. The Italian bakery is open every day except Sunday and sells wonderful foccacias, huge loaves of bread, and pastries. In one ocorner is the craft beer producer Heidenpeters, which brews unusual beers like Thirsty Lady and Spiced Ale in the basement. The space also hosts a dazzling array of rotating events like the popular Street Food Thursday or the bimonthly, sweets-only Naschmarkt, so it's best to check what's on before heading there.
