is the old market in the center of Munich. Here you can by the freshest fruit and vegetables in the whole city. The market has a reputation of having higher prices than your average supermarket but in actual fact many goods here are cheaper than elsewhere. Wandering round the market is a delight as you are greeted with smell of spices, cheeses, and fresh veg.
The Viktualienmarkt is located in the very center of Munich. Just three minutes walk from Marienplatz
- behind the old townhall.

There is almost nothing cheaper at the Vikkie-Markt unless
you normally shop in the Hertie
gourmet sections, OR
you're a long-time regular customer at a particular stand.That said, the quality and selection are usually better than the usual city supermarkets, and you can find a lot of specialty items from multiple potato varieties to horse meat to organic food grown by a co-op.
Orignially a farmer's market, few items are actually grown/raised/made by the sellers there, but there are exceptions. Look for hand-drawn signs which have the word "eigene" but realise that this usually refers to a particular item and not the entire selection of goods at the stand.
It's definitely a place to go but be prepared for some sticker shock.
