COLOGNE WHOLESALE MARKET

International trade relations
Cologne Wholesale Market is one of Germany’s largest markets. The wholesale market hall is an impressive structure, it is listed for preservation as the construction method is especially interesting.

Since its opening on 1st November 1940, the wholesale market has spread out over privately owned and municipal land, growing in size from 70,000 m² to 230,000 m².

Since the late 1950s most growth has been in the import business. International business relations guarantee the variety and excellent quality of the produce sold. The catchment area covers the region within a 200 km radius of the market.
