Naschmarkt in Vienna
Edible Vienna History
The Naschmarkt in Vienna is our best deli, food and flea market, and a tasty part of Vienna history. Here is a guide to the more than 100 landmarked stands, bars and restaurants.
Apart from selling all types of regional Austrian food, the market is also Vienna's window to the Balkan. Turkish butchers sell next to Polish sweet shops and Austrian farmers, while Mediterranean and Asian restaurants and snackbars mingle with Viennese cafés one row further. The upper section, further towards the Wiental, is dedicated to a flea market which takes place every Saturday. It's my insider tip for buying dirndl dresses for kids.
The Naschmarkt dates back to the 16th century, reflecting 500 years of popular Vienna history. Many of its current stalls are from the 1920s.
What To Buy At Naschmarkt
Austrian Food and Regional Produce
My mother, a passionate cook and street market addict, visits the Naschmarkt in Vienna almost every Saturday. Here is our shopping guide for travellers. It focuses on the best regional produce and local food brands:
If you want to try Eastern European food, go for the Turkish lamb sausages, the spices, and baklava and other sweets from the Near East.
Opening times: weekdays (06.00am to 6.30pm); Saturdays (06.00am to 05.00pm)
Covering the sights and sounds of Naschmarkt in the depth it deserves is best undertaken on-site.
There are experienced local guides walking small groups of maximum 10 travellers through the market's 500 years of history.
You will stop at various stalls to taste new food and flavours: from our good old Viennese gherkins to cheeses, Turkish honey, Balkanese kebabs and exotic spices.
The guides also provide culinary tips on how to use the herbs and spices you'll see.
