Most shoppers like to partake of one stop shopping for whatever reason, be it time, convenience or price. The opportunity to purchase fresh produce on an open air market stand still exists in Neuss for consumers that enjoy the alternative.

Market stalls and stands can be found on Markt in front of the Rathaus. At the time of writing from Tuesday to Friday and Saturdays on Münsterplatz.



The ability to interact, chat a little or just swap a smile with vendors in the easy-going world of open air markets in Düsseldorf is a great experience. It is an opportunity to taste and often hand pick food instead of purchasing prepackaged goods The final step in a chain of events that starts with a farmer or producer, via the Düsseldorf’s wholesale market and onto vendor’s stalls.

Open Monday to Saturday, one of the most popular markets is on the centrally located Carlsplatz in the old town, Altstadt. Ambitious demands for good quality ingredients such as fresh fruit and vegetables, meat and poultry, fish or herbs are most likely to be fulfilled here. A variety of flowers and potted plants can also be purchased.

Many more markets offering fresh produce can be discovered at some twenty five locations throughout the districts and are run by the city. Expat favourites are on Rochusmarkt in Pempelfort, Barbarossaplatz in Oberkassel, Marktplatz in Kaiserswerth and Fürstenplatz in Bilk.

We stand in a foreign culture finding ourselves pointing, gesticulating and hoping to be understood. Germans mostly speak at least some English. However, some expats relocating to Düsseldorf may wish to carry a few basic but helpful words with them for use in awkward moments.

Original language movies are popular among expats in Düsseldorf. Films are frequently screened in English at a variety of cinemas in original with subtitles, known as OmU or Original mit Untertitel and without, portrayed as OV or Original Version
