Named the “city’s stomach” by locals, the Naschmarkt, a food and flea market, has existed since the 18th century and is Vienna’s largest inner city market. The Naschmarkt is open from Monday to Saturday for strolling, admiring, discovering and sampling.
You can buy everything to do with food: fruit and vegetables, meat and fish, bread and cheese. There are also delicatessen favourites such as Persian caviar, sushi and oysters, as well as a colourful display of international produce, especially from the countries of former Yugoslavia, Greece, Turkey, Japan and China.
If the sight of all this bounty makes you hungry, you can eat right in the Naschmarkt at a choice of restaurants. And on Saturday don’t miss a visit to the most famous flea market in Vienna, which is held right next door.

Testimonial from Deborah O'Kane, UK:
"Imagine a gorgeous Saturday morning in Vienna, wandering along photographing the fabulous Art Deco buildings and architecture. And then, while looking for the subway to the Schönbrunner, coming across the Naschmarkt, full of curios and the curious. Great for browsing, people watching, and being alongside the outdoor food market, perfect for a lunch or coffee stop."
