karmelitermarkt

kev and i got the U bahn to the 2nd district yesterday and headed to the market at karmeliterplatz. its a cute little market that i haven't been to before. on saturdays farmers come to sell their produce. we bought a litre bottle of rosé wine from a farmer for only €2! (although we haven't actually tasted it yet).

i think its the sort of place you need to get to early as we arrived at midday and many stalls were already packing up (kev and i are really not morning people. something i need to try and change living in this city i think). but it was nice to have a little wander around. all the produce looked amazing. there was bread, wine, cheese, eggs, flowers, vegetables and loads of lovely looking fruit like cherries, raspberries and blueberries.
there are some lovely buildings overlooking the market too.

we decided to sit at a café called tewa (there is also one at naschmarkt) and have a beer... and lucky we did because about two minutes later it started chucking it down with rain. this called for another beer and lunch whilst we waited for the rain to stop!
the food pictures don't look great because we'd already tucked in before i remembered to take any! but kev had a grilled chicken mixed plate (although it mostly seemed to be a bowl of hummus?) and i had a falafel and hummus sandwich. was yummy!
