All year round, three times a week, the people of Mainz go to the oldest and most attractive markets in Germany to buy their food. The markets take place on the picturesque squares around Mainz Cathedral and invite locals and visitors alike to stroll and shop in a most relaxed atmosphere.

The people of Mainz are known for their openness and wit, and visitors are bound to end up in conversation with locals, as a market square is the perfect place to meet other people. Food markets can also be found in other parts of the city.
