As it says in the name, the one thing that counts in a fresh food centre is: freshness. And here Hamburg’s wholesale market has a crucial strategic advantage with its excellent location. Directly at the port, with the main station round the corner and the motorway on the doorstep, North Germany’s largest fresh food centre has ideal transport connections.
Facts, data & figures
- 27.3 (ha) Size of the market site

You can always rely on the quality
Around 350 wholesalers offer their products in Hamburg’s wholesale market; their customers are weekly market traders, operators of specialist shops as well as restaurants, hotels and canteens. With such a selection, buyers can certainly prove to be choosy. Every wholesaler is thus keen to offer goods of the highest quality. Nothing is left to chance in the process. For example, the collection point of a residue analysis laboratory is to be found directly on site which means that any contamination, however small, can be detected.
