The Viktualienmarkt is the place to be for foodies. This former farmers’ market is now home to 140 stalls offering all sorts of fruit, vegetables, bread and speck.
The Viktualienmarkt has been held daily since 1807, except on Sundays and public holidays. Over the years, the market has evolved from a farmers' market to a popular place to buy fresh food and delicacies. We like to go there to buy exotic ingredients that are not available anywhere else in the area. But the market vendors are selling more than just foreign goodies. They have everything food and market lovers need: from fresh fruits and vegetables to honey, herbs, wine, spices, and delicatessens, including an array of fresh regional produce, with specialities including speck, Schweinshaxe (ham hock), the love-it-or-hate-it Weißwurst, and locally foraged mushrooms. Experience locality at its best at the Viktualienmarkt. Make sure to stop at Karnoll's Standl and get a Bretzn - they are said to have the best in town.
