“Amazing indoor food market......”
Reviewed January 30, 2014

A great destination for any foodie. So glad we were staying in a condo for a week so we could purchase some of the wonderful foods. Chocolate was wrapped in clear cellophane so you could see exactly what you were getting. My grandsons loved being able to choose their favorites. Also many choices of olives, pates, cheese, breads, sausage, etc..... Advise going early because it became quite crowded while we was there shopping. Merchants very gracious about samples (glad I know a little German). Take Euros because credit cards not used in many booths. Having your own shopping bag is also a help when buying lots of items in different places.

“Global gourmet food in traditional ambience.”
Reviewed January 10, 2014

The Markthalle in Stuttgart is well worth a visit! The surroundings are traditional, German bourgeois...now housing fresh gourmet food from different countries and cultures. There is a bustling life and good atmosphere. Service is very good. The different foods are exhibited in an aesthetic way.

“Top-notch indoor food market”
Reviewed October 21, 2013

Large indoor market packed with food stalls. Naturally lots of sausages, bread and cheese, but also a lot of wider European delicatessen like olives, vegetables, oils and wine.
If you are passing, make the effort to walk through, there are exits on all sides.
Round the corner from the main square at the town hall (exit opposite the Rathaus, next to Breuninger department store)

“Has to be seen to be beileved”
Reviewed October 1, 2013

As an Englishman this was a real eyeopener. It is what you might call an indoor market but it is way beyond anything I have ever seen in the UK. The stalls are laden with fresh fruit and veg, hundreds of different cheeses, thousands of different spices and many kinds of Bread and that is just the start. I recommend a visit to anyone as a excellent example of what a Food Market should be.

The markthalle is the place to go for food friends and passionate cooks. All kinds of fruits, vegetables, bread, sausages and very exotic food ingredients are presented in a very colorful way. And rhe smell is very spicy.
