Morning at the Farmers Market
Karmelitermarkt in Vienna's Leopoldstadt

A Sunny Saturday Morning
Off to a good start
at Kaas am Markt

with a Viennese Melange
in a hand-painted ceramic Gmundner mug,
served with a complimentary vanilla crescent

On the way out
of the fabulous slow food heaven,
Kaas tempts once again with
a wide range of artisan breads
and the finest walnut-filled Danish crescents

Look at this purple cauliflower,
basking in the morning sunshine:
Way more enchanting than
rounding up the usual vegetables
in plastic bags at the supermarket,
isn't it?

Seedless muscat grapes -
late autumn's golden girls -
compete with the seasons's
first Christmas door swag

Vienna's largest selection
of red-hot and yellow chili peppers?

Pale lavender Shasta daisies
competing with brilliant yellows and reds

Once more the bread basket
in front of Kaas am Market cafe and deli:
Center stage, brioche crescents decorated
with coarse sugar; at the bottom right,
the last walnut-filled Danish crescent

Saturday morning
at Kaas am Markt
and the farmers market
at Karmeliterplatz
2nd District

  1. I love visiting a Farmer's Market. Just so cool to see.

  2. Beautiful pictures! Those Danish crescents look delicious. I hope you'll have more sunny days like the one when you took the pictures!

  3. Bellissime foto, Merisi!!
    Stunning, and I felt like I was there with you in the Austrian sunshine :)

  4. What a pretty hand-painted ceramic Gmundner mug! It would be hard to walk away and leave that behind for moi...
    It looks so idylic there...

  5. Yes, going to the green market is so much better than the supermarket!
    Yours looks just as good as Union Square.
    Happy Thanksgiving.

  6. Such pretty flowers in the first photo, very happy looking.

  7. Why do your posts always make me so hungry? :)

  8. It's like the garden of Eden!

  9. I am having coffee right now and could use that vanilla crescent. Have a lovely weekend!

  10. The bread looks so good, I can nearly taste it with my cup of coffee! We love going to the farmers market on the weekend, especially now the cole crops are coming into their own!

  11. I am so thankful to be back and able to view all of your images. My computer has basically been nearly silent as I have been dealing with...stuff;))) I love this entry and ,as another said, your images always make me hungry too. Is that Rose Hips I spy in the flower arrangement, what a lovely idea for an autumn arrangement. Your images always transfer me to where they have been taken, just beautiful~
