Even though I was going to be busy all weekend at The Hive, I simply HAD to pay a quick visit to the food market at Boxhagener Platz in Friedrichshain.
I only had time to take a quick round + I arrived just as they opened up (8 am), so I didn't have a chance to take a closer look and actually buy something, but I could tell right away that it was fabulous. Lots of fresh food; vegetables, fruit, bread, foreign specialties, herbs and much more.
You can easily have breakfast here, since there are several places which sell coffee and bread, and you can buy beautiful flowers to bring home with you. A real local jewel.
The market is open every Saturday from 8 am to 14 pm.
Boxhagener Platz, Friedrichshain.
