MUNICH
WHOLESALE MARKET

Munich Markthallen – a wholesale market with potential
Located in the heart of Europe, this international hub for handling fruit and vegetables covers an area of 310,000 m². 400 importers and wholesalers from all over the world trade trade here – and they sell not only fruit but flowers, delicatessen products and wine too. Fruit trading agencies arrange to ship goods to other European countries. A glance at the figures soon reveals the economic importance of Europe’s thirdlargest fruit and vegetable market (after Paris and Barcelona). In the wholesale market hall, which forms part of the Munich Markthallen, some 800,000 to 850,000 tonnes of produce are traded every year. The estimated turnover of all the companies based in the wholesale market hall is 1.5 bn. euros. This strong market position derives from its enormous catchment area, ranging from Munich and its surrounding region across much of South Germany and into Austria. Every day around 5 mil. people have access to produce from Munich Wholesale Market.
