I visited the Naschmarkt last year, and took these photos of the tempting produce and foods. I purchased my fair share, taking items back to the apartment I was staying in and preparing a couple of healthy meal in the midst of vacation. I also purchased some of the pre-made dishes, you can't get more authentic local food than what you purchase in a farmer's market!
I was lucky enough to visit the market with my daughter, who shopped there often when she lived in Vienna. It was a trip down memory lane for her, a trip she kindly shared with me. I believe we often live and share through our foods more than we realize.
Farmer's markets everywhere have the same sense of what's fresh locally, produce that bursts with flavor and color. How lucky we are when we're able to share these markets with our children, family, and friends. We can revel in how we each have different new foods that attract us, as well as how we often share food likes and dislikes.
If you have a farmer's market close by, visit it soon. Take your family and make an outing of it. If you're traveling and happen to be in a city on the day of a farmer's market, take the time to tour. Some markets are happy to offer samples, so you can taste the local flavor. Sometimes you can find an apple or pear that makes the perfect snack.
