Since 1949, the Isemarkt lures around 6.000 visitors to Eppendorf to do their weekly grocery shopping, or just to stroll along and chat with other visitors under the Hochbahn bridge.

Those who want to do their weekly groceries at the market usually should better be morning persons. But the Hamburger Isemarkt even gets the late risers out of bed to buy fresh and regional products. 

Every Tuesday and Friday at dawn the Isestraße turns into a paradise of market stalls. The highlight of this market is not only its spectacular range of stalls but also its special location: The Isemarkt runs along one kilometer underneath the bridge of the Hochbahn of the line U3 from Hoheluftbrücke to Eppendorfer Baum.  

There is nothing that you can’t purchase

Among the more or less 200 retailers there is nothing that you can’t purchase. From fish to juicy apples from the old land, colorful flowers, aromatic cheese and exotic tee up to sweet herbs and delicious vegetables locals can get everything they need for their daily life as well as what brings little joy to life. Even lyric from Hamburg is offered to the customers – if you’re lucky presented in a live performance.  

Strolling around and drinking coffee

Even if you don’t have anything urgent on your shopping list, it’s always a pleasure to visit the market just for strolling around and drinking coffee. In between the numerous retailors and visitors a very special atmosphere arises, one that can’t be found at the 100 other markets in the city.

CITY AREA PORTRAIT Eimsbüttel & Eppendorf

Here, one can find magnificent old building façades, local and exquisite restaurants as well as fancy boutiques and owner-operated shops. While Eppendorf is rather fancy, one can feel the hanseatic serenity in Eimsbüttel. Both districts offer much green and water and are hence with good reason very popular neighbourhoods in Hamburg.
