The Großmarkthalle München (Wholesale Market Munich) is an international wholesale market located in the Munich borough of Sendling. In an area of 310,000 m², 270 importing companies and wholesalers offer 140 different product classes from 83 countries with a sales volume of more than 750 million Euro. Additionally there are 65 horticultural producers, 45 florists and 15 wholesalers of miscellaneous lines. The market’s geographical sales area is virtually “boundless“: day after day it supplies a region with approximately 5 million people and delivers goods to almost every European country.

After Rungis International Market in Paris and Mercados de Abastecimientos de Barcelona, Wholesale Market Munich is the third biggest wholsale market in Europe.

Parking availability for delivery trucks is “around the clock” from Monday to Sunday, 24 hours a day; Freight handling activities: Monday to Friday, 4:00 am to 8:00 pm; Saturday, 6:00 am to 2:00 pm. Sales hours in the Wholesale Market Munich are from Monday to Thursday, 5:30 am to 1:00 pm, Friday, 5:30 am to 2:00 pm.

The main entrance of the Wholesalemarket Munich is situated directly opposite to the Munich garbage burning and recycling facility. Their three very tall chimneys are easy to see protruding into the Munich skyline. The adjoining “South Station“ with its own track infrastructure and modern unloading equipment provides an optimal and reliable connection to the railway system. Munich is an advance border entrance point, which means all import/export formalities can be transacted easily within the branch offices of the public authorities. The Mittlerer Ring, Munich’s inner-city orbital road system, runs south of the market premises, allowing easy access for cars and delivery trucks.
