This small market, close to the Währingerstraße, is perhaps underrated in comparison to its bigger brothers. Not as as trendy as Yppenplatz and the nearby Brunnenmarkt, nor as dramatic as the Karmelitermarkt, Kutschkermarkt nevertheless has a charm of its own which is largely down to the variety of stalls and warmth of the sellers, and of course the fabulous location in Währing.
It must be pointed out that, by virtue of being in the posher 18th district, this market caters for people with less of a conscientious eye on their wallets as on their vergnügen. There is more than a slight whiff of affluence, but I wouldn’t like to give the impression that it’s too exclusive. It’s certainly not pervasively expensive, and the groceries are still cheaper than you’d pay in a supermarket.
There is a good range of places to eat and drink, including the excellent ‘Weltmeisterkebab’ stall – doing its best to address Vienna’s poor kebab quality compared to neighbouring Germany – and cafés such as Himmelblau, which serves a variety of organic produce. There are also flower and clothes stalls. This market is more than worth a visit.
