(NOTES FROM VIENNA)

STROLLING AND SHOPPING
AT THE "NASCHMARKT"

In 1898, Vienna decided to cover up its Vienna River.
The long, wide square they created was filled
with a lively market called the Naschmarkt
(translated "Munchies Market.")

This famous outdoor market has 2 parallel lanes --
one lined with cafe and eateries,
the other featuring Vienna's top-end produce.
(It's where chefs like to get their ingredients.)

Rare short-season white Marchfeld asparagas . . .
just picked berries and greens . . .
freshly fermented sauer kraut (so delicious) . . .
gourmet vinegars, truffles from Alba . . .
exotic fruits and mushrooms . . .
with cafe table views to take it all in.

This is Vienna's gourmet experience,
al fresco!

  3. Amei a série de fotos.
    Um mercado como esse é um excelente lugar para passear e fotografar.
    Um show de cores, texturas, formas e cheiros.
    Gostei muito das fotografias anteriores sobre os baristas. Eu também adoro um cafezinho.
    Viena é um lugar de pessoas alegres e receptivas.
    Beijinhos.

  4. The only sad thing about these photographs is the fact that I cannot go shopping at this market. So delicious. I am salivating from all the gorgeous colors.

    I knew you are the genuine kind after seeing your website. I hope someday you get your darkroom back!!!
