At the heart of the city
Since 1952 Dortmund Wholesale Market has been at the heart of the city and the region. In 1976 the wholesale market, hitherto a municipal corporation, was one of the first German markets to be privatized. Since that date it has operated as a cooperative society.
With a sales floor of more than 58,000 m² the market serves a catchment area that includes the Ruhr district, Westphalia, the Rhineland and regions beyond, providing top quality produce for more than 3.5 million people. Apart from the classic wholesale trade in fruit and vegetables, Dortmund is a major regional centre for the fish trade. The success of Dortmund Wholesale Market is founded on its central location and good transportation connections within one of Germany 's most populous regions.
