If you’re looking for a real taste of the local culture and a glimpse into Vienna's famous market, the bustling Naschmarkt is the place to visit. It is an interesting mixture of Austrian traditions and oriental influences which dates back to the 16th century. We spend a few delightful hours here, wandering from one booth to another.
The massive market houses knick knacks, ornaments, antiques, clothes, fresh produce , foodstuff and almost everything under the sun.
There are some fabulous gourmet stands and cafes lining its streets and with the vast array of food and savouries all wonderfully laid out, I found myself in gastronomic haven. What I like about the place is the setting and the food tastes much better and cheaper than in other regular restaurants we patronized.
A delightful array of yummy delicacies stuffed with creamy cheese. It was interesting to look at the display of vibrant coloured delights even if you were not buying anything.
A lot of local people get their grocery shopping done here, as it has the best quality fresh produce than any supermarkets could ever offer. Yeah, any octopus I see now reminds me of Paul after he became a media star. I've never tried octopus before and I would be scared to prepare and cook it, and wouldn't order it off a menu.
Every kind of flavourful dried fruits you could possibly need
A colourful array of dried figs, dates and pickle fruits
Fresh fruits and vegetables as far as the eye could see
wonderful spread of Viennese desserts in a riot of flavours and fillings
And no Viennese meal is complete without several varieties of cheese.
