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.
Markt am Carlsplatz
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.
