Now, this is a market! The closest you’re going to find to a bazaar in Vienna, where markets are orderly and neat. Situated in the multicultural 10th district, this place is one of our favourite markets and we felt like we’d left Vienna as soon as we approached it. If you’ve travelled to far-off exotic places in the world, you’ll know that the prerequisites of a real market requires a little grit, a little multicultural colour, pigeons humping on stand roofs. The Viktor-Adler-Markt ticks all of these boxes – the mélange of languages being spoken, the turban wearing men selling sunglasses, the smell of incense and spices, the shearing sound of the meat bansaw, the mix of Balkan, Turkish, Oriental, Asian and Austrian. And, you’ll be hard pressed to find fruit and veg and meat produce this cheap anywhere else in the city. It also boasts a collection of the best, and most reasonably priced seafood restaurants in the city. The real highlight of Viktor Adler Markt is the “pop-up” farmer’s market on the neighbouring street, Leibnizgasse. This place is loud and crowded, but where you’ll find the real deals on produce. An eclectic mix of Turkish housewives and restaurant chefs jostle for the best deals.
Our favourite features of the market
+ The fish restaurant Aura (with its rooftop terrace)
+ The small Bosnian grill stand, the Old Bridge imbiss.
+ The most amazing Turkish Gozleme’s we’ve tasted in town at Türkische Küche – you can watch them making it fresh!
+ Stopping at Rudy’s Imbiss for a moring spritzer and käsekrainer where Falco, or DJ Oetzi are often blaring on the speakers.
