Throughout Berlin there are a number of discount grocers. While the range of products may be limited in comparison to the more expensive supermarkets, you will find most things you need; fruit and vegetables, pantry items, dairy section, frozen foods, drinks including alcohol, meats and pre-packaged deli goods. Prices within these stores can be up to 10% cheaper.
- Netto Marken-Discount
There are also a number of more comprehensive supermarket chains throughout Berlin, providing a generous range of choice including an impressive range of bio/organic produce and limited international selections.
