Lecker! Lecker! Lecker! - Türkischer Markt in Berlin Neukölln
If you like Turkish or Near-Eastern food, or just love the bustle and variety of markets, then a Top-Tipp is to head down to the Maybachufer in Neuköln (nearest U-Bahns Kottbusser Tor and Schönleinstraße ) any Tuesday or Friday between 11:00 and 18:30 (6.30pm).
It is not a large market - just along both sides of one short road beside the canal - but crammed into this space are stalls selling everything imaginable for a market (and on the periphery, the unimaginable too!).
Colourful, noisy, with wafts of delicious and tempting smells, and the stall-holders calling out 'Lecker! Lecker! Lecker!' and offering you slices of produce to probieren.
Okay, some of the prices can be a bit steep, so don't get carried away. But the street-food is tasty and cheap enough. And as long as you keep your head and don't buy a 2 kilo bag of olives in the heat of the moment, you'll find it a most enjoyable experience.
