Six Wonderful Markets in Vienna

Markets are places for meeting old and new friends. Here you find inspiration – and the missing ingredients for lunch! And a piece of cheese for dinner, after the seller has tempted you with a sample. No matter how ordinary it might be for some, each visit is an experience for all senses. It smells of exotic spices. The farmer’s fresh vegetables shine in all colors and the tomatoes have such an enticing scent! Who can resist?

We looked around Vienna’s markets and made a list of six wonderful markets in Vienna for you.

Naschmarkt

Let’s start with the most famous market in the city. Vienna’s Naschmarkt has a centuries-long tradition and is called the “belly of Vienna”. “If the Naschmarkt doesn’t have it, you don’t need it,” is the market’s slogan, and residents are still convinced by it. Over 120 stalls and restaurants offer an enormous variety of delicacies from the region and all over the world. Vegetables, fish, meat, spices – everything fresh! Restaurants in particular have enjoyed a great boom here in recent years, which gives visitors many superb options for (at least) culinary travels to other countries. This makes the Naschmarkt a popular meeting point for young and old. And for good reason, many consider the flea market on Saturdays a must-see event.

Kutschkermarkt

In Vienna's 18th district, the Kutschkermarkt is one of only two street markets that remain. The stalls offer high-quality products in keeping with the district’s well-off mileu. The focus is on delicacies from all over the world as well as organic products. The famer’s market each Saturday is a weekly highlight. On Saturdays the Kutschkermarkt’s regular stalls are supplemented by regional farmers with vegetables directly from the field, fresh fruit and various meat products. The cafés and restaurants around the market are popular meeting places with high-quality fare on offer.

Meidlinger Markt

The Meidlinger Markt was founded in the period between the world wars and is still there today. Located in the 12th district, the market has retained much of its old flair. In recent years, the large, traditional selection of products such as fruit, vegetables and meat have been complemented by several more unusual stalls with vegan or gluten-free products. The restaurant business around the Meidlinger Markt is even more colorful. Many special restaurants with unconventional concepts recently opened up in the area. It all creates a wonderful mix of the traditional and modernism.

Brunnenmarkt

Let’s continue with the second and also largest street market in Vienna. The Brunnenmarkt between Thaliastrasse and Ottakringer Strasse has an international flair. Here you can get delicacies from all over the world, exotic spices and enticing fruit at reasonable prices. The area around the Brunnenmarkt has evolved into a trendy district in recent years. Many artists have settled here. Hip and modern restaurants continue to pop up between the traditional cafés. It’s always a pleasure to be swept along and inspired by the multicultural setting of the Brunnenmarkt and its surroundings.

Karmelitermarkt

A 10-minute walk to the Karmelitermarkt is a nice way to follow up a sightseeing tour in the city center. This will take you right into a burgeoning Viennese neighborhood. Not only the typical market activities but also the local restaurants draw many visitors. New and innovative dining concepts are emerging constantly. The relaxed atmosphere at the Karmelitermarkt gives you many delightful opportunities to sample the wares. At the farmer’s market each Saturday, local producers supplement the delicious offers.

Rochusmarkt 

Last of all, we’ll visit the 3rd district of Vienna. A trade route passed by today’s Rochusmarkt as early as 1192. Today the Rochusmarkt is an important local supplier. It features not just many different food stalls but a striking number of flower shops. It’s no wonder, since it was originally exclusively a flower market. The food was only added gradually. On the rare occasion that you don’t find what you need at the market, you can get lucky in the directly adjacent shopping mile.
