This small market, close to the Währingerstraße, is perhaps underrated in comparison to its bigger brothers. Not as famous as the Naschmarkt, nor as beloved-of-hipsters as the Karmelitermarkt, Yppenplatz or the nearby Brunnenmarkt, Kutschkermarkt nevertheless has a charm of its own. This is largely thanks 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. This market is for people who enjoy an extravagant weekend market, and who want to express their happiness buying organic cheese. 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.
