Characteristic for Berlin are the old-fashioned markets and market halls. All around the city a wide variety of colorful outdoor markets take place several times weekly. During the Christmas season there are over 50 Christmas markets open seven days a week.
On weekends, at the outdoor flea-markets you can experience the diverse atmosphere of Berlin's cultural life. The most popular one is the Kunst- und Trödelmarkt on Straße des 17. Juni.
Twice a week on many squares throughout the city there are markets that sell mostly fruit and vegetables. One of the best is the turkish market on Maybachufer. For ecological products the market at Kollwitzplatz (Prenzlauer Berg) is a good one.
The big market halls, where you can buy everything from fruit and vegetables, dairy products to clothing are typical for Berlin.
