Flea Market at the Naschmarkt

Every Saturday there is a Flea Market at the Naschmarkt. 

Now the Naschmarkt is a produce market in the city.  It began as a milk market in the 16th century.  It is a wonderful place to get spices, produce, cheese, vinegars (bring your own bottle and turn one of the taps), sauerkraut (the real stuff sold by the kilo from a barrel) and all manner of other delicacies: black bread, mohn (poppy-seed) strudel, sausages, cheeses, olives.

A little aside: the papayas are 3.99? per kilo (that’s $A6.60 or $6.20).  Ja wahnsinn (ya vawnzinn)! That is 20 Malaysian Ringgit per kilo. In Malaysia you pay around  1.50 Ringgit per kilo or $A0.75)

It was a gorgeous spring day when we visited the flea market (after coffee…of course…at Cafe Sperl )

The goods were interesting if not outrageously priced !!!

Oh my gosh; I had forgotten the Naschmarket! It was a a wonderful place when I was there; no flea market then, just beautiful breads, vegetables, pickles, olives, cheese…no better cheese have I ever had.
Enjoy, G!
