Brunnenmarkt is one of Vienna’s markets where you find real life, and is one to which I return time and again when the family requests grilled lamb cutlets for dinner. Last week was one such occasion, and I thought to take a few snaps along the way. (“My” Halal butcher is superb; I once explained that I wanted “beautiful cutlets” for a dinner party, and he hand trimmed each one. Now I routinely ask for beautiful cutlets. I am spoiled like that.)
My New Farmer’s Market Crush. It is no secret that I
enjoy love wandering markets, and often use the time for dinner inspiration. Though I have my favorite stops in Vienna depending on what I am seeking, I’ll rarely if ever turn down the occasion to make a new market friend. Especially a market as enjoyable as this one.
On beautiful days especially, a favorite sport of mine is to roam a market for supper inspiration. Today’s market was Kutschkermarkt, one of the last two true street farmer’s markets remaining in Vienna and located in Währing, the city’s 18th district. Though I routinely drop in at the other street market, Brunnenmarkt, today’s visit to Kutschkermarkt was my first, and not to be my last.
