While we were having a double family lunch at the Klug restaurant – Lend-Platzl – in Graz, Austria, I took a stroll across the street to the Lendplatz Market. Although I only caught the end of the market, I sure was happy to wander around this area for a while. It was like a feast for my senses.
“When the farmers come to town, there’s tasty fare to be had. One of the city’s many charming farmers’ markets nestles on the right bank of the Mur at Lendplatz market. With an impressive 800 urban farmers, Graz has the most market days in all of Europe. Instead of traders, farmers themselves proffer their delicious wares. Any shopper will delight in packing their bags full of crusty farmhouse loaves, cured ham or smoked sausage, fish, fruit juice, freshly cut flowers, fruit and vegetables.” – Source
I absolutely LOVE farmers markets!
I took a few pictures of the market, but they were starting to wrap up for the day, so here is a nice picture by Harry Schiffer posted on Lendplatz Market Graz Tourismus.
Freshly baked goods, jams, dried meats, flowers, herbs, jams… Need I go on? My love of photographing all things beautiful had my feeling like I was floating on clouds as I meandered around this Graz Farmers Market.
