The Best Street Food Markets in Dusseldorf

Anwesha Ray

One of the major upsides of Dusseldorf is its food. The city offers a wide range of gastronomic options for every taste bud. Street food markets in the city offer delicious food at affordable prices and are extremely popular with locals and tourists alike. Here are some of the best in Dusseldorf.

1. Markt am Carlsplatz

Market, Farmers' Market, Food Stall, Food Stand, German, Vegan, Vegetarian, Fast Food

Markt am Carlsplatz is one of the biggest farmer’s markets in the city, with over 60 stalls selling fresh produce. However, this market is also known for its yummy street food. Long queues, especially during lunch time, are certainly a testimony to the fact. They offer not just Dusseldorf specialties and German traditional dishes, but also international options. So, the all-time German favorites bratwurst and reibekuchen are gorged on together with Iranian yogurt with rose petals, pasta, Asian noodles, and French delicacies. The aroma of freshly brewed coffee entices shoppers to take a break from grocery shopping.

Rheinischer Bauernmarkt

Rheinischer Bauermarkt is another extremely popular farmer’s market in Dusseldorf. Though they don’t have a lot of options when it comes to ready-to-eat food, it takes a lot of self-control to leave the market without indulging in their fabulous baked goods. Locals flock to the bakery stall for oven-fresh breads, bread rolls, cakes and pastries in many flavors. Bauernmarkt operates in six locations in Dusseldorf.

2. Fischmarkt

Market, Street Food, Seafood, German

Dusseldorf Fischmarkt is heaven for foodies, especially fish lovers. The stalls at Fischmarkt sell perfectly cooked, delicious dishes, accompanied by wine and other beverages. The star point of attraction of this street food market is that signature dishes from various countries are available here. Though fish and seafood dishes are the most popular in this market, a lot of other options are available as well. The market opens on specific dates only and gets very busy.

3. Street Food Thursday

Every foodie in Dusseldorf looks forward all month to Street Food Thursday (first Thursday of every month). Food trucks offering local and regional delicacies come together to tickle the taste buds of Dusseldorfers. Pasta, noodles, burgers, fries, sausages, desserts, foodies can gorge on anything their hearts desire. With live music added to the mix, this event takes on a truly festive charm.
