Definitely go early! The market is open from 8a-1p Mon-Sat and it is a very popular attraction. Local fresh produce to the left, stands selling kitschy things mainly to the right, as well as local overflow in the summer.

Weekday from about 8 to 1 o'clock and Saturdays, maybe about the say time. I live in Freiburg and when I need fresh produce I always walk through the market to get it because the quality is better than in grocery stores. If you like olives, pickled artichokes and stuff like that, go to the stands on the south side.... More

In Munsterplatz (the plaza around Freiburg Minster) every day (but sunday) there is a farmers market till noon. Flowers, fruits, wooden art, cheeses, breads and of course many kind of sausages are all around. It is best to come hungry :-)

We were lucky to stay in Freiburg during the wine festival. The Munsterplatz was transformed into a foodie heaven. What a wonderful city.

I impose myself upon relatives in Freiburg at least once a year and a visit to Munsterplatz and particularly the Farmers Market is a must. The sausage stalls begin setting up around 4.30 am. to make sure of a good pitch and, if the thought of sausage appeals then I would suggest a morning visit as the vendors tend to... More

Make sure you go there before noon. (1 pm on Saturdays) there is a nice farmer's market. You can buy berries, and almost anything else. Really nice. Just a little stroll.

this square is very beautiful, the colors of the nearby buildings and the coblestoned street with the cathedral is the perfect setting for nice photos or a romantic dinner at a restaurant with this view!
