This is the center of the city. So much going on all the time. Lots of little vendors selling fruits and vegetables as well as local favorites. Definitely worth a peek as it is close to the local attractions.

Great market to do your shopping if you're heading off into the countryside in a camper van, looking for dinner ingredients or maybe packing a picnic lunch for the following day. Delicatessen style shops grace the edges with beautiful fresh, cured and cooked meats on display. The thing about southern Germany is the salamis and mortadella meats and the cheeses... More

It's worldwide famous Christmas market here, but it's also a very good place to enjoy people-watching and many interesting road shows or entertainments here...it is unavoidable to visit while you come to tour in Germany

There were numerous stalls in the market and most of them are fresh fruits. The tip would be not to buy fruits when the market is almost closed as those fresh ones would be sold already.

If you are preparing a meal, this is the place to shop in Nuremberg. Many vendors offer an array of colourful fruits and vegetables at the peak of ripeness.

Its nice that there is a daily market on this square. There were some plants and fruit and vegetables, sweets, gingerbread, cheese, preserves etc. I wanted to buy some gingerbread but the items were not priced up & no one seemed interested to ask if I wanted help so I bought some at the shop on the square instead for...

A neat market surrounded by other shops. A great place to people watch, the market is located in the old town section of town close to other attractions.
