On the Naschmarkt, a colorful crowd buys fruit, vegetables and various delicacies from every country from dawn till dusk. Increasing numbers of trendy "in" places are also finding somewhere to set up in the more than 120 market stands, and even offer free WLAN.
Do-An and Naschmarkt Deli were gastronomic pioneers. They have succeeded in making the Naschmarkt an interesting place for a young, urban crowd. DJs also provide entertainment here on the weekend. Since then, numerous old market stands have become popular places to meet thanks to their modern architecture.
Tewa on the Naschmarkt offers organic cuisine, Neni serves Israeli-Oriental specialties from shakshuka (eggs with vegetables) to taboulleh (Lebanses salad), while at Orient & Occident the wives of the owner whip up Turkish home cooking. Fish lovers get their money's worth at Umar. Many people considered it to be the best fish restaurant in Vienna. The Fischviertel is also worth recommending.
Apart from all the diverse market stalls, a visit to "Kim kocht. Shop und Studio" makes for an interesting detour. Here, toque-winning cook Sohyi Kim, who runs her restaurant "Kim kocht" in the ninth district, sells home-made chutneys, sauces, soups, dressings as well as herbs and spices. In the new wine bar "Kim kocht. Wineclass", the focus is on sparkling wines. In addition to sparkling wine and champagne and the seminars about them, small snacks are also served here.
Many other premises have also opened in the immediate vicinity of the Naschmarkt. On the Rechte Wienzeile, right across from the Naschmarkt, is Café Amacord. Excellent Viennese cuisine in a cozy ambience is the order of the day here. On the opposite side, on the Linke Wienzeile, is Café Drechsler. Designed by star designer Terence Conran, it is considered a modern twist on the typical Vienna coffeehouse. The ON Market is also a restaurant that never sleeps. The visually impressive restaurant with the colorful textile artworks on its walls offers fine cuisine from the coasts of Asia, from breakfast to the late-night snack. The Theatercafé offers traditional Viennese cuisine in the not-to-be-missed ambience of the architect Hermann Czech.
There's lots going on at the Naschmarkt, especially on Saturdays, also because of the weekly flea market. The colorful throng is worth seeing, even if you don't want to buy anything. Particularly pleasant is sitting outdoors on the Naschmarkt in summer, eating, drinking and watching people go about their business.
