November to the 60th time at the Berlin exhibition center. More than 320 exhibitors from 55 countries present high-quality products with special stories.


From 2nd to 6th November, the exhibition halls under the radio tower will once again be transformed into a colorful marketplace for beautiful and handmade.

“We are very pleased that Bazaar Berlin will reopen to guests on Wednesday. With exhibitors from near and far, colorful lights, rhythmic drums and diverse products, the fair makes November a little more colorful every year. Here, guests immerse themselves in other cultures and discover treasures that can otherwise only be found on holiday. It is great that we can celebrate our anniversary together with old acquaintances, but also with interesting new exhibitors such as women-managed companies from India and Jordan, says Esther Piehl, project manager of Bazaar Berlin.


Cultural diversity and masterful craftsmanship for 60 years


Since 1962, exhibitors from all over the world have been presenting handicrafts, design, natural goods and fair trade products at Bazaar Berlin. The eventful history of the traditional fair can be traced on a total of four anniversary walls in the exhibition halls – from the beginnings as a development policy event in 1962 under the name “Partner of Progress” to the name change in “Import Messe Berlin” in the 1990s to today’s “Bazaar Berlin”.



With over 320 exhibitors from 55 countries, Bazaar Berlin will take place from the 2nd to the 6th. November 2022 at the exhibition center in Berlin.




Traditional knitting craft from Scandinavia and unusual headgear from Ukraine


For the first time this year, the Swedish design and manufacturing company “Öjbro Vantfabrik” is represented at Bazaar Berlin. In Hall 20, booth 116, they present knitwear made according to traditional Nordic craftsmanship: from warming merino cardigans and fists to caps and cuddly blankets. At Öjbro Vantfabrik, every product tells a story. The creative designs always focus on traditional patterns and colorful colors rooted in Swedish cultural heritage. Warming caps are also available in hall 20 at booth 118. Ukrainian Mary Groz Feltmaker from “Kazbekova Karina” shows her unique and handmade creations there. The felt hats and caps, which are creatively handmade in Kiev, are a special eye-catcher due to their colorful animal and monster motifs.


Culinary specialties and diverse goods from Africa


The Africa Hall 11.2 “Living Africa” invites you to an extraordinary journey to the multifaceted continent. Exhibitors from countries such as Madagascar, Tunisia or Burkina Faso present typical products here, including handmade masks, baskets and drums. In the restaurant in the Afrika-Halle, visitors can expect a culinary journey with traditional dishes and the typical fruit beer from Ghana.


Fair fashion in the halls and on the catwalk


For the third time, a fashion show will take place at Bazaar Berlin, which shows exclusively fairly produced and traded fashion. On Friday and Saturday (4th and 5th November) at 2 and 5 pm in Hall 19, Cambodian designers from MEDC (Modern Ethnic Design Center) from Phnom Penh will show a selection of their collections. At Bazaar Berlin, fair fashion can not only be admired on the catwalk – in the theme world Fair & Social (Halle Palais), visitors will find further offers from fair trade. At the same time, this segment is about conscious consumption and the topic of sustainability: Under the motto “Reuse instead of throwing away”, the initiative of the Berlin Senate Environment Administration “Re-Use Berlin” promotes awareness of resource-saving consumption. At its booth 217 in the palace, the initiative informs about its previous activities, offers and planned actions such as networking with local zero-waste initiatives.


Shopping like on vacation – without traveling


If you are looking for original Christmas gifts to give away, you will surely find them at Bazaar Berlin. Like on a real bazaar, visitors can discover, browse and buy in five theme worlds. The offer ranges from the World Market with typical products from all five continents (halls 18 and 20) to Art & Style with individual fashion, jewelry and accessories (Palais) to Fair & Social with fair trade and socially produced products (Palais). If you are looking for ecological products around a healthy life, you will find them in the Natural Living segment (Hall 20). In the theme world Winter at Home (Hall 20), visitors can expect an atmospheric pre-Christmas ambience. If you are looking for the Living Africa exhibition hall, all you have to do is follow the call of the drums (Hall 11.2). On this shopping tour around the world, there is something for every taste and budget.
