9.3 Shopping in Berlin
Many of the supermarkets and shops in the centre of Berlin are open from Monday to Saturday from 9am to 8pm. Many supermarkets, such as Kaiser's, are open until 10pm or even midnight.
Late night shops (Spätverkaufsstellen), also known as ‘Spätis’, are open 24 hours a day, usually even on Sundays. Their ranges vary from basic products to a supermarket level range of products.
A reasonable and ecological alternative are the many neighbourhood markets which often offer locally sourced products. There are also many flea markets held throughout the city on weekends.
