After many years of waiting, Copenhagen got a whole, new food temple in September 2011 under the name ‘Torvehallerne’.
Torvehallerne consists of two market halls with over 60 stalls with fresh fruit, vegetables, fish, meat, cheese, bread and an array of specialties from the Danish regions. In short: A Mekka for every food lover.
Besides food stalls you’ll also find small restaurants, takeaway and cafés where visitors can rest their legs and enjoy the view of the transformed urban square outside. The stall owners are mainly small and quality conscious producers of foodstuffs and they all ensure great variation.
With its 7000 square meters Torvehallerne is Copenhagen's biggest food market with over 60,000 weekly visitors.
An old market place
Israels Plads has been Copenhagen’s market place since 1889. In 1998, after being closed for several years, a group of enthusiastic locals founded a square guild where the new market place could be situated. And thirteen years later Torvehallerne opened up the doors for the first time.
Today Torvehallerne is open 7 days a week and the food market is located few minutes from Nørreport Station in the heart of Copenhagen.
