This cheerful market set in the oldest market square of the city is a favorite with locals and a must-visit for tourists. A heady diversity of flavors and fragrances—in the form of fresh fruit, vegetables, meat, fish, poultry, cheese, wine, flowers and plants—are packed into as many as 60 stalls. With fresh juice, coffee, confectionery, snacks, and baked goods added to the picture, Markt am Carlsplatz pretty much sums up a perfect afternoon.

Farmers and gardeners from all over Rhineland converge here with the freshest produce straight from their farms. The range of goods at the Rheinischer Bauernmarkt includes meat and poultry, vegetables, fruit, sausage, salami, cheese, eggs, flowers, plants, herbs, liqueurs, honey etc, along with mouth-watering baked goods. The Rheinischer Bauernmarkt operates in six locations in Dusseldorf.

2. Fischmarkt

Though raw as well as deliciously cooked fish dishes from various countries are the star of the Dusseldorf Fischmarkt, flowers, soaps, vegetables, fruits, handicraft items, and a whole lot of other things fight for the attention of huge crowds. Shopping at this bustling market can always be topped off with a chilled Altbier or some snacks, while enjoying live music from talented local musicians. The market opens on specific dates only.
