At Asia Mekong, which is, counterintuitively, a Korean grocery store in Mitte.
Two surprises awaited me this past Saturday as I took a walk from Neukölln to Kreuzberg, getting acclimated in Berlin again after a week in the heat of Spain. First, I realized that one of my favorite greenmarkets, the “Turkish market” (held on Tuesdays and Fridays on Maybachufer), has spun off a third, Saturday market dedicated to fabrics and handcrafts. There, I was doubly surprised to find an airy, minimal stand in shades of dusty green and creamy white, offering an array of strange air plants with nary a root or speck of soil in sight.
Spring on Spain’s Costa de la Luz (the Atlantic part of the coastline) is an explosion of wildflower blossoms, from red poppies and yellow-and-white daisies to purple thistles and blue borage. I plucked a few while staying in the dusty little village of El Palmar to study more closely.

In this restaurant in Berlin-Friedrichshain the other day, in the morning before the restaurant had opened for the day, a crew of plants were chilling in the window, from oranges to orchids.
