The area
Neighborhood: Friedrichshain
When you arrive at Warschauer Strasse in the heart of the district, you have found one of Berlin’s party hotspots. At night in Friedrichshain, the energy is palpable and the streets of this old worker's quarter are full of street musicians. On one hand, you may find a bar with international crowds, electronic music, long lines and panoramic views - on the other, an outside venue by old train yards featuring decrepit buildings and live alternative music. No matter your taste, the best way to end a night out in Friedrichshain is sitting by the Spree River at the East side gallery, the longest and best preserved piece of the Berlin Wall, watching the sun rise over the beautiful Oberbaum Bridge.

Had a fun time strolling around this flea market that runs all day Sunday. A mix of old and new stuff, with lots of clothes, furniture, vinyl, ornaments... There did not seem to be much room for haggling though.

Cool flea market with all sorts of retro stuff and also more contemporary handcrafted work e.g. some very nice rings made out of sea shells and printed T-shirts. When we went to the market there was live music and some sort of performance art going on. Arty and very easygoing. Lots of cafés adjacent to the market make for the perfect place to hang out, watch the locals and have some breakfast (we forgot the supermarkets are closed on Sundays).

If you want to live deeply a Sunday in Berlin, visit a flea market. The one in Boxhagener Platz (Friedrichshain) is one of the most famous. Not huge, but with a warm atmosphere. You can find many original souvenirs coming directly from the GDR's time or handcrafters manufactures.
Many bars, restaurants and cafeterias around the square offer rich brunches.
Children can play at the playground inside the square.
Relax is the motto.

this is a compact and overflowing market, with everything from cool kitsch, modern arty things, general household bits and bobs and cd's and stuffs. there is another market 5 mins away back towards the railway terminus at warschauer strasse, full of more homemade (in an arts and crafts/screenprinting sort of way) wares, where local artists are in full force. plus the surrounding area is full of all day brunch joints on a sunday.

This is a really great place to get your weekly grocery shopping - wether it is veggies, flowers, cheese or bread, you will get it there - fresh and at excellent prices.

The combination with some food places and local manufacturers of candles, T-shirts, etc and the busy yet relaxed atmosphere make this market a great place to visit and shop on a Saturday.

It's a great outing for an hour, whether or not you need anything. With a good eye and some luck, you can find some nice original art work, some old camera for your collection, cool antiques from a bakery, new postcards or original little cloth bags. The new and old books are worth mentioning, that incl academic and art books of some merit.
Loads of inexpensive, decent restaurants all around. Musical offerings. An outing for people of all ages.

Visited this market on a Saturday, it had a great vibe and unbelievable food to offer. Definitely go there hungry! There is a great range of fresh fruit, fish, cheese, pasta and cakes. The donuts were a highlight.

If you are into flea markets, this is an absolute must-go place to visit. Genuine bargains for real old stuff. Of course the best changes of finding something special is early morning, but even in the afternoon it was still great to stroll over this market. Also the neighbourhood is nice to walk through with lots of small places to eat or drink something in what is just a cosy, non-touristic area.

We didn't intend to go there, but happened to have lunch nearby. When we walked past Boxhagener Platz, the very tempting smell of food brought us there. There were so so many food stalls (and stalls selling other stuff). We wished we hadn't eaten that full. We had a very nice stroll in the market. In the middle of the Platz was a playground. It was indeed relaxing to walk around the fresh-food market and seeing the kids playing around.
