Definitely avoid rude saleswomen at the touristy shops/stands!
Nov 2021 • Solo
Viktualienmarkt is a nice place to walk around and buy some snacks. Not all the prices are so high so shop around. The Beergarden is a great chance to meet some locals. They serve various Munich beers depending on the day.

Tourists should beware of the extremely rude saleswomen at the “Holzwaren - Birgit Peter” stand and “Gifts Made in Heimat” shop. These women treat foreign and local customers with contempt. As their businesses rely on us to shop there, they should be more pleasant. They show the ugly side of Bavarians, who are otherwise nice people.

Don’t miss lovely Gärtnerplatz nearby:-)

There is nothing special in the market.. the prices are not cheap.. the supermarket has more and cheaper goods.. I don't know why it was rated higher than its real value..

It is currently closed. I do not know if that is because it is a Sunday. I will find out tomorrow and if it is open tomorrow (a Monday) I will edit my review.

go if you look for gourmet food
Jul 2021
Viktualienmarkt is a popular place for both locals and tourists, adjacent to Marienplatz; go to buy specialty foods, not only from Bavaria, but also Spanish ham or sausages, French cheese, wine etc. The square is lines on the side by countless bars and restaurants which are quickly packed after work, especially so on the weekend. Many food or flower stalls close by around 6 p.m., which is fairly early....

We arrived 6pm ish, most stalls were still open but you could see plenty closing so need to go earlier if you want to buy anything. We just wanted to walk around so it was fine. We had a beer in the middle of the market. The waitress was amazing and when she said they didn't have English menus she then went through the whole menu for me and explained everything. I felt pretty bad for her when I then just ordered pork knuckle but she was still cheery.
Great place to see. Prices looked a bit steep in stalls but that's what you expect at a market like this. Worth a visit for sure.

Must-see for tourists
May 2020
This market is a tourist magnet, and also rightfully so. There are a lot of booths where you can try various food, you can buy flowers, drinks, and a lot of other items.

It's kind of a must-see when you're visiting Munich, but be aware that most items here aren't exactly cheap at all.

Don’t miss this market!
Jul 2020 • Couples
We stumbled onto this market while walking around Munich. It had 20-30 open air market stands with everything from fresh veggies & fruit to flowers to meats and cheeses to crafts. So much to see! Definitely give this place a try. A great place to casually shop and grab a bite to eat. We’d definitely go back.

Lovely smells in the air!

Walked through here on accident when roaming around the Old Town. The aromas wafting through the air made me hungry, and I already had a full belly! Would recommend to anyone in the area.

Open Market
Dec 2019
The market is very close to Marienplatz. We walked past a day after Christmas and it was closed. We came back the next day and it was open. It is a combination of solid buildings and tents.
There were quite a few stalls around the area. They sold lots of different items, from fresh produce to pretzels, to cheese. It was quite a nice market to walk around to see all the different items on offer. There are also a variety of shops around the market area.
There is also a bar in the middle with seating which was a nice place to just take a break. The restaurant within the market are set in tents, but this was during winter.
The area itself was also quite interesting with statues and other sculptures scattered around the area. Quite a nice place for food or some sights, particularly since it is down the road from Marienplatz.
