Do you have any idea what chickweed is and that you can actually eat it? I didn’t, but I’ve seen it on offer at Winterfeldt market and it at least looked delicious, which tells you a lot about this market.

This flea market is located very conveniently just next to lovely Thai market and just next to a subway station.
First things first, this small diner is making no secret of its religious alignment. Some might be able to ignore this, but I found it rather weird eating my Bibimbap in a room wallpapered with hand-written bible quotes from floor to ceiling.
As stated before, flea marketing in Berlin can be difficult. Knowing that, I planned some serious research in the outskirts of my normal Berlin circles and went to Lichterfelde, a district that is part of Steglitz-Zehlendorf, which has a lot of people with a rather high income and a high age – perfect flea market district, so to say.
Arriving there, the scenery is bleak – on a huge parking lot of one of those huge hardware stores, small stands are set up in between cars and orange shopping carts. No trees or pictorial food stands to beautify the picture. So we focussed on the offered goods.
I’ve been telling you that what I like most about Berlin are its absurd things you find off the beaten tracks, like the Thai Market. What is equally interesting in terms of foreign food, is the Intermarket Stolitschniy in Lichtenberg.
