9.3 Shopping in Berlin
Many of the supermarkets and shops in the centre of Berlin are open from Monday to Saturday from 9.00 to 20.00. Meanwhile many supermarkets, such as Kaiser's, are open until 22.00 or even midnight.
Late night shops (Spätverkaufsstellen), also known as ‘Spätis’, are open for 24 hours a day and most also on Sundays. Their ranges vary from a basic product offering to a supermarket level range of products.
A reasonable and ecological alternative is the many neighbourhood markets, which often offer locally sourced products. At the weekends there are also many flea markets throughout the city.
