    Vegetables and fruits at the Viennese Naschmarkt

    It is still not clear where the name »Naschmarkt« came from. Literally it means »Nibble Market« by the way. What is known is the fact that the former »Carinthian Door Market« was formerly referred to by the Viennese as "Aschenmarkt" which is literally »Ashmarket« and was then given the name "Naschmarkt" around 1820. Officially, the market was not named »Naschmarkt« until 1905.

    Originally, the market was located on the Freyung in the 1st district. Between the city of Vienna administration and the Scottish Convent in Vienna there was a dispute about htat. Therefore, the market was relocated in 1780 to the region of Operngasse, Wiedner Hauptstraße and Resselgasse and is now in the 4th and 5th district of Vienna.

    Fixed market stalls since 1916

    In the first major refurbishment phase in the years 1910 to 1916, fixed market stalls were set up at the »Naschmarkt«. Before that, the market stalls were only mixed up with horse-drawn vehicles and could change depending on the market day. Since then, the stands have also been listed as historical monuments and were not significantly changed within the scope of the renovation required after 100 years between 2010 and 2015, but only renovated and renovated.
