Farmers' markets

Farmers' markets Review

In addition to Elisabethplatz and Viktualienmarkt, there are about 40 other weekly farmers' markets in Munich. Some are just a few fruit and vegetable stands on a side street, and some are also the weekly meeting point for the neighborhood. There's a farmers' market out near the zoo on Wednesday and Saturday, from 8 am to 1 pm: Take Bus 52, which leaves every 5–10 minutes from central Marienplatz to the Tiergarten (zoo). Get off at Mariahilfplatz, stroll the farmers' market at the foot of the church, grab a bite, and take the next bus to the zoo. Also on Saturday from 8 am to 1 pm is the farmers market near the university: take Subway 3 or 6 to Universität and walk through the university to the corner of Gabersbergerstrasse/Türkenstrasse, where the market stalls are erected on the eastern wall of the museum Pinakothek der Moderne. You can get a good glass wine from the Rhineland wine grower and a made-to-order sandwich from the butcher at the next stall then grab a place at one of the stand-up tables and you're set. Thursday afternoon is the time to visit the farmers' market with the prettiest and most historic site—and it's the closest to the city center. Take the number 4 or 5 subway from Odeonsplatz to the Lehel stop at St. Anna Platz.
