Who doesn’t love a great food market? I love the amazing food markets in Vienna for many reasons, and so do many locals and tourists.

The food markets in Vienna have a large variety of culinary choices to cover all your needs. Vienna’s markets are in season throughout the year for shopping, cuisine and conversations.

1. Naschmarkt

Vienna’s most well-known and most frequented market. Here you can find almost everything your heart desires. Cheese, wine, sausages, even mushrooms from Holland! (Not that kind!)

I especially love the Naschmarkt as it has the most variety in food and drinks. The choices are endless and I have eaten at a different spot every time I have gone there. You will not be disappointed!

Clearly number 1 on my list of markets! Yeah, I am partial because Vienna is my home and this is a market I have frequented for years.

So, let’s call this one a bonus, instead of #1.

Keep reading, I have something special for you at the end of the post. 🙂 Now back to my list of 5 Bargain Food Markets In Vienna.


2. Karmelitermarkt

Located in Vienna’s second district, this is an up and coming market with a growing numbers of bars and galleries. The square is quiet and of all the Vienna markets this one is grows bigger by the day.

If you want a good breakfast on a Saturday morning, then the Karmelitermarkt is worth checking out. I recommend the Zimmer37 Cafe.


3. Brunnenmarkt

 The Brunnenmarkt is the largest street market in Vienna. Here you can find a lot of oriental spices and food. If you like Turkish food or spices, you will love this place!

A lot of locals like to come here, so if you want to meet new friends or other tourists, this is a great spot.

Brunnenmarkt is an excellent market experience that offers not only fresh fruit and vegetables, but craft items and clothing too.

4. Rochusmarkt

Formely known as the Augustinermarkt, this market changed its name after a move in the 1990’s to the vicinity of the Rochuskirche (Rochus Church). It is the main shopping avenue of Vienna’s 3rd district. 

At noon, whether during the week or on weekends, it is hard to find a place to eat as all the stalls and areas to sit are filled with hungry lunch-goers. This should tell you how wonderful the food is.

Rochusmarkt offers great value for your money and will not disappoint!

5. Alte Post

Open from January to April, this is the market to purchase the very best Viennese honey.  

On Friday evenings, the market offers both wine and beer tastings. Visit on Saturday for  breakfast and brunch.

(BONUS) Markt Am Donaukanal

This is a different kind of market as it is an open air flea market open from from May to September. Although you can get food to buy and eat here, the market is known for its Antiquarian books, prints, and sheet music. This is Vienna, the city from which many of the world’s best known composers come from and played in. So yes, expect a market dedicated to that.


And There You Have It – My Top Five Must See Markets In Vienna

All the markets are easy to get to via bus, tram, or underground train. The Vienna public transport system is extremely easy to navigate. GPSmyCity will get you places even faster.

You can make your way around the city easily and the markets have all been situated in close walking proximity to one of the public transport systems.

If there is a market you happen to visit that is not on this list but you think should be, let me know!

Enjoy your time in any or all of these great Vienna Markets and please share with me your thoughts and feedback.

Looking forward to hearing your thoughts, feedback and comments.

These look like such beautiful markets! I wish we had more of these around my area. We have some markets but they tend to become more retail over time which is a bummer because I love being able to go get fresh food and unique finds!

I love everything that you mentioned here. I am eager to purchase the Viennese honey. I mix honey with my tea. How much should be my budget in order to fully enjoy shopping in these markets?
