i would consider myself a foodie - a foodaholic - a foodaddict - whatever you want to call it. i just love food - especially when it comes to getting grocery and cooking. there is nothing better than the smell of amazing and fresh food.
but food is getting more and more expensive. which makes it hard to eat healthy and diverse. that's why i like to go to turkish markets. and there are quite a few in berlin. but the most famous one is the turkish market at maybachufer and i call it the food paradise on earth. they have literally everything there (opening hours see below).
i normally get all my veggies and fruit over there: zucchini, tomatoes, avocados, salad, mangos, melon, bananas and all kinds of berries - depending on the season. and i rarely pay more than 10€ for everything. also my favorite spices such as curry and herbs are only around 1€ a bag.
you can also buy streetfood over there - that are mostly typical turkish plates. i really urge you to go to the foodtruck that sells kumpir. it's in the middle of the whole market and you will get a box of it for like 3€. if you don't know what kumpir is: it is kind of like a backed potato (sometimes it is more mashed potatoes) with a bunch of other things to add. it is just so delicious.
open tuesday and friday from 11am to 6.30pm
