This huge market has been for more than 200 years in the heart of our city. The Viktualienmarkt is one of Munich’s biggest attractions and offers a huge variety of products. It’s a tourist-y place and therefore prices are rather high. Still – if you’re searching for an exotic fruit, gourmet foods, colourful veggies or just a chill place to enjoy a fresh juice, coffee or cold beer, this is where you should go.
Sadly you won’t be able to overlook the many butcher shops (some are famous for selling horse meat) and fish restaurants. Places like Sababa will make up for it, though. They offer some of the yummiest falafel in town in my opinion, served with amazing veggies, hummus and salads. The soup kitchen often offers delicious vegan soups and the coffee house there serves a mean espresso.
There’s also a whole market stall dedicated to vegan spreads, dips, pestos, delicious breads, and so on. It’s called ‘Lebe Gesund’ and they grow all their products on farms without any keeping of animals. It must be noted that they’re a religious cult called ‘Universelles Leben’, though. I haven’t made up my mind yet how I feel about buying their stuff. One thing’s for sure, it’s definitely delicious.
