Spices at Vienna's Naschmarkt

Your tour will begin near the Naschmarkt, where you’ll join up with your guide and head into the hustle and bustle.

Stop at the array of colorful stalls to chat with the vendors and taste the fare, which alters seasonally. You may find yourself trying anything from Viennese cucumbers to Middle Eastern kebabs, or exotic spices and ruby pomegranates.

As you go, hear about the market’s 16th-century origins, when milk bottles were the main item on supply. By the 18th century, the Naschmarkt was the city’s main hub for purchasing produce and today remains unrivaled in its culinary diversity, ranging from fresh bread and cheese to crepes and sushi.

After tasting a variety of Austrian, Mediterranean and Asian offerings at the stalls, pick up some insider tips while perusing the herbs and spices so you can experiment with new dishes back at home.

We enjoyed it so much last Christmas see posting 30 January 2016 we did it again on our return to Vienna this Christmas. We were not disappointed. Many of the same places and a couple of new. The advantage of the second tour is you know pretty much what to expect and we could settle in and really enjoy the tastings. Spices, oils, vinegars, falafels, dried fruits, ham, cheese, olives, and mushrooms to name a few of the tastings and smells enjoyed through the tour. The Naschmarkt is part of the Vienna cultural heritage and should not be missed if you are in the city. This is a particularly great way to see it for the first, and second, time.

No one could have told us how nice this was! Three hours wondering through the Naschmarket learning about the local foods from the past and imported in the more recent years. Sampling of spices, oils, meats, cabbage, candies, cheese and pastries. A great tour for your first day, you will go back to buy more:-.

Peter's wife was an amazing tour guide!! She had much knowledge about the history of the market, and also of all products sold at the market. We had an absolutely wonderful time on this tour, and would've enjoyed it to go longer. All the tastings were wonderful. Nothing but praise from our group!

Peter, our guide, met us at the beginning of the market and gave us our very own tasting spoons for the tour. We then began ambling through the market, with him describing foods, the processes involved in making them, their histories, where they come from, and how to use them in all kinds of dishes at home. His culinary background definitely shines through as he describes fabulous cooking ideas and spice combinations. We were the only 2 on the tour, so it was very personal, and Peter answered all the questions we threw at him. This tour was a delightful part of our Vienna visit and I would highly recommend it to anyone visiting the city!

Outstanding tour...Peter our tour guide met us just outside the subway stop at the entrance to the farmers market. We strolled through the farmers market for the next 2 hours. He is a chef by training...and took us into various shops to sample honey, vinegar, cheese, meats and other delicious food. We also stopped along the way for coffee. Highly recommend if you are a foodie.

I was the only person who booked onto this tour but it ran anyways. The guide was extremely knowledgeable and she took me into many of the stalls to taste their goods. The guide went above and beyond and I loved her personal stories. It was a highlight of my visit and I definitely recommended it.

If u r interested in food/cook/ingredient, good to try.
The guide was very pleasant but helpful to inform history/background..
Was fun time in general, but didn't feel VERY essential.
