  1. Amazing pictures. I don't know why I'm still here and not in Vienna. Next year I'm going to leave earlier, in May and not in June. I'm leaving in 3 days....

  9. I didn't make it to this market, but I know I'll be back to Vienna (must save some things for next time!). It looks really lovely. Those stacks of chairs are very pleasing.

  20. All of these photos have beautifully vivid colors. The apricot and cherries photo is terrific, as are all the others.

    1. One of the reasons I go to the market early is the wonderful light. Later in the morning, it loses its crispiness. That's when I start shopping or/and drinking coffee. ;-)

  26. Those chairs are just amazing! And the green bike . . . is it yours? How lovely to ride a green bike off to a farmers market and return home laden with delectable food and beautiful flowers!

  27. Sorry I'm getting here late but wow, what a gorgeous series of photos! Your first shot should go on a tourist website, it's picture-perfect. And the chairs piled high are quite a find. No wonder it's your favorite part of town, it would be mine too! If I ever visit Viennna (I'm sure I will, eventually) I'll make sure I go there. I understand the market is on Saturday mornings?
