Side-by-side, Brunnenmarkt and Yppenmarkt attract discerning customers who search for the finest and freshest provisions to fill their pantries. The open-air Brunnenmarkt (Fountain Market), draws crowds of bargain hunters and locals scouting the best deals on locally grown & raised food. Here you will find freshly picked produce, daily-caught fish, prime cuts of meat, Turkish Kebabs, pastries, and spices from around the world. With a heavy Mediterranean and Oriental flair, people watchers will love wandering between over 170 stalls in this unique pocket of Vienna between Thaliastrasse and Ottakringer Strasse.
 
Discover a modernized version of these pop-up shops inside Staud’s Delicatessen at the Brunnenmarkt. In 1971, Hans Staud upgraded his family’s fruit preserve and pickled vegetable business, and by earning a reputation for using the highest quality ingredients in his recipes, his products have become famous. Jars of beautiful apricot and cherry preserves topped with lids depicting famous works of Austrian art are available to take home. Seasonal fruits and vegetables are sold outside under awnings. During the weekends, pick up the perfect partner for Staud’s jams: freshly baked crusty breads and fluffy pastries made by SlowBaking member Kasses Thaya.
 
For even more handcrafted gourmet groceries, visit the northern Italian deli, wine shop & bistro, La Salvia, sells goods such as prosciutto, cheese, olive oils, and delicious truffled products. If you can’t squeeze in a seat at the counter for a delicious snack of antipasti, enjoy a meal of homemade pasta or a Panini al fresco on their sidewalk café.
