The ability to interact, chat a little or just swap a smile with vendors in the easy-going world of a market in Düsseldorf is a great experience. As is the opportunity to taste, smell or perhaps touch rather just purchasing prepacked goods.
Open Monday to Saturday, one of the most popular markets is on the centrally located Carlsplatz in the Altstadt (old town). Ambitious demands for ingredients such as fresh fruit and vegetables, meat and poultry, fish and herbs are most likely to be fulfilled. Many more markets offering fresh produce can be discovered in most districts. A large variety of flowers and potted plants can also be purchased.
