The Viktualienmarkt is the largest fruit and vegetable market in Munich.
In 1807, a herb market was established at the site of the former Heiliggeistspital and has been increasing in size ever since then. Even a hundred years ago, it was sizeable.
Right next to the Viktualienmarkt is the site of the "Schrannenhalle",built under King Maximilian I according to a French model. This was a market hall with a length of over 430 metres, where grain was sold. After burning down in 1932, it was rebuilt with the original wrought-iron frames and the new "Schrannenhalle" was inaugurated in September 2005. It now houses a market, shops, restaurants and cultural venues.
