Try to go to local grocery market squares on Saturdays (in general stores & food markets are closed on Sundays) to catch traders when they reduce prices before the weekend. It is possible to haggle over the prices. You will end up with bargains (bread, fruit, cheese) and might also be able to buy cheap flowers if you need some, or even get them for free. In order to get bargains, a good knowledge of German is essential.
