Saturday morning is the best time to shop in Germany. This is where you will experience shopping in Germany at its finest.
Market in Germany
What’s good thing about shopping in Germany is that you can smell fresh products the vendors are selling. The weather is fine, the prices are great, and the fragrance of food is truly appetizing. The vendors can perfectly explain to you the components of what they are selling; be it fruits, veggies, or your favorite cheese and sausages. If you really want to experience how it feels like living and shopping in Germany, then I strongly suggest that you spend at least a year in the country. That way, you will know the best season to do your shopping, especially if you are shopping for particular goods.
If you know how to do your research right, then you will be able to find independent bakers and pastry chefs in the country. There are so many big companies in Germany and their products are being resold in smaller shops. However, if you want to taste the best tasting pastries and breads, then you can find it at small independent bakeshops. You have to remember that the bigger the production, the lower the quality. Once you find a highly reputable mini bakeshop, then you will truly differentiate the taste.
What should you keep in mind?
If you are in Germany, then you have to keep in mind that meat is one of the most expensive things to purchase. You have to literally find an independent butcher as most big stores are selling pre-packaged meat. If you are in a hurry, then shop at Lidl, Aldi, and other big grocery stores.
These stores sell almost anything you want, but you have to be aware that there products are pricy. These stores have longer working hours as compared with small stores. Most stores in Germany are close on Saturday afternoons, but big stores like the ones mentioned above are open even in the afternoon of Saturdays.
