In Mariahilf, the 6th district of Vienna, Vienna’s largest inner-city market is located between Linker and Rechter Wienzeile. It extends from the Secession at the grain market to the U4 station Kettenbrückengasse.
The Naschmarkt is at the same time a sight, outdoor shopping oasis, (Saturday) flea market and fattening mile – and popular meeting place by day and night.
Naschmarkt – a culinary pleasure tour
Here you get all kinds of international goods, exotic spices and fruits, vegetables, cheese, fish and meat, baked goods, Asian items, sweets or coffee specialties and organic products. And if you do not feel like shopping for a Krügerl, sausages, sushi or a cozy cup of tea, you can take a break in one of the restaurants. Especially in summer you can even stay here until 11 pm. There is always a reason to visit the Naschmarkt!
The Viennese Naschmarkt: history
Since 1780, mainly dairy products were traded on the former farmer’s market on the right bank of the Wien River, known as Kärntnertormarkt. Whether the name Naschmarkt goes back to the name “Asch” and the milk container made of ash wood, or at least to the original use as ash dump under the title Aschenmarkt, is not clear.At any rate, the name Naschmarkt first appears about 1820 on.
