There is hardly anything that you cannot get on the markets of Vienna, from fruit, vegetables and flowers to Persian caviar, from Japanese sushi to Indian tandoori chicken, from döner kebab to oysters and meat loaf. Vienna's markets are in season throughout the year, reflecting the charisma of the city at all times. Vienna's markets are about much more than just shopping. They are the lifeblood of the districts they serve, attracting a young, creative and lively scene.
Vienna’s largest and best known market offers a mixture of Viennese and international specialities. Naschmarkt is the undisputed jewel in the crown of Vienna's permanent markets. Set between Karlsplatz and Kettenbrückengasse, the Naschmarkt is the mainspring one of the city's most interesting districts. Culinary specialities are always fresh and in bountiful supply here, no matter whether they are typically Viennese or exotic.
Saturdays with organic corner and flea market

Also just a few minutes from the Old Town, near Schwedenplatz, is Karmelitermarkt. The district around this old-style local market had been rather off the map, but with growing numbers of bars, studios and galleries springing up it has seen a renaissance in recent years.
Friday and Saturday with farmers' market
A colourful, newly fashionable district is springing up around Brunnenmarkt, a little further from the city centre, in Ottakring (16th district). The market exudes South European flair with a strong Turkish flavour. Numerous young artists have set up shop in the surrounding area, making Brunnenmarkt and nearby Yppenmarkt one of the most electric neighbourhoods in the city today.
On an attractive shopping street: groceries, fruit, vegetables, flowers and a wide range of cheeses.
