STUTTGART WHOLESALE MARKET
A sound partner for a sound region
Handling 520,000 tonnes of produce a year, Stuttgart wholesale market is the nation’s third largest, after Munich and Hamburg. Every day more than 1,430 tonnes of fruit and vegetables arrive at the market. More than 100 growers, 85 flower traders and gardeners sell regional products. Additionally, 110 wholesalers cooperate with countless suppliers from all over the world. An Italian commercial bakery rounds off the wide range. Some 4,000 traders, restaurant buyers, caterers and top chefs in the region place their faith in the quality assurance procedures.
The sales floor occupies 197,000 m², where the wide range of fresh produce is attractively presented in a clearly laid-out setting. The infrastructure serving the wholesale market on the banks of the river Neckar is good and guarantees rapid access to all parts of the region for an optimal supply service.
In early 2013 a 2nd PV system was installed on two other roofs; its output is 802 kWp. Part of the energy generated serves the market’s own needs and part is fed into the grid. This brings the total of roofs fitted with solar modules to 3, and combined output to 2,000 kWp.
