The monastery of Indersdorf was founded in 1120 A.D. by count palatine Otto V. von Wittelsbach. For centuries, it used to be the economic centre of Indersdorf and the surrounding area. After the secularisation, the own establishments of the monastery passed over to private owners and have been and still are lead by able craftsmen and entrepreneurs.

The mechanisation in agriculture after the Second World War unleashed numerous skilled workers. They found work in the district town of Dachau and the big industrial firms in the north of Munich.
However, in Markt Indersdorf, too, jobs in industry, trade and commerce were created.
Gradually, a large number of domestic businesses settled down, enhanced their output and built up new ways of production. But also well-known companies from outside settled, creating many new jobs for the inhabitants of Markt Indersdorf.

The trade of the municipality is characterised by a sane mixture of different branches.
Innovation and tradition are the corner posts of the trade structure in Indersdorf.
