The Farmers’ Market in the middle of Frankfurt is known locally as ‘Erzeugermarkt Konstablerwache’.
It a well priced proper market, as well as bustling local tourist attraction, offering culinary treats and regional produce.
Every Thursday and Saturday, farmers from the rural areas come to sell seasonal fruits, vegetables, meat, fish, cheese, dairy products, flowers, mushrooms, honey and anything edible within a radius of probably 100 kilometres.
The Farmers Market is a great place for lunch. The stalls offer a variety of sausages and steaks, there’s even vegetarian sausages, and peculiarities like onion tart, potato puffs (kartofel puffer). You can eat as if you’re in a resturaunt.
Most appealing is the atmosphere at the regional wine stalls, selling the best of German white wines and warm apple wine.
At the wine stalls there is quite a bit of chatter between the locals, so before embarking on a wine tasting tour of Hessen’s regional wines, be sure to line your stomach. The vibe is like in a wine bar, or beer garden, if you’re drinking fine beers.
On the south west corner of the square are ATMS.
