In the location's words:

Markthalle Neun as a food point in Kreuzberg has set itself the goal of showing how "eating differently" and "shopping differently" can be possible in the city: In respectful treatment of people, animals and the environment, regionally and seasonally focused, combined with local added value, transparent and trustworthy. The gradual re-establishment of small-scale grocery trade and handicrafts in the area previously dominated by discounters also means the re-appropriation of the hall as a lively place in the neighborhood.

The basic offer on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays and the weekly market on Fridays and Saturdays with products for daily needs but also specialties from all over the world, is the basis of Markthalle Neun: Many of our vendors are producers from the region who accompany their food from origin to marketing. Others are traders who know the story behind their products. A glass bakery and butcher shop, a small in-house brewery, a "Tofurei" and a canteen where you can look over the chefs' shoulders take food production out of anonymity and back into the urban environment. In cooking classes, children and young people can try out how to handle food and acquire knowledge and skills. The street food market also shows Berlin as a creative metropolis when it comes to food, as a city of immigration with a great variety of authentic food cultures.

In addition to the production and sale of food, the market hall offers space for initiatives from local residents and is a platform for projects that critically address the issues of food, the city, agriculture, biodiversity and the environment. Last but not least, Markthalle Neun wants to give impulses for the "how" of food supply in the city and the socially necessary debate about a sustainable and globally just food system.

The existence of Markthalle Neun in its current form is anything but a matter of course. Between 2009 and 2011, with the support of local residents and contrary to the practice of awarding properties in Berlin at the time, it was possible to avert its conversion into a supermarket center. In the meantime, the weekly market and the theme markets are well used and contribute to the economic stabilization of regional producers and traders. The reestablishment of small-scale food retailing has created new livelihoods and jobs.
