Munich: For the Love of Food Markets
Furniture at Schrannenhalle
I took the time on my last day trip to Munich to just really wander around for much of the afternoon. I am not very familiar with the city so even an unplanned route (particularly in such a beautiful city) was bound to have many new sites and surprises.
One such new site for me was the Schrannenhalle, a market hall full of absolutely delicious products. I realized rather quickly that a market hall where a bag of pasta (in the grocery store at one end of the hall) could easily cost 8 euros was certainly not a place where I would be doing any sizeable grocery shopping. But I got a few morsels of goodness to take home as well as a couple of gifts.
Now this is what I call a bakery. I like buttery, rich, tiny sweet things.
And macarons. Of course, the macarons.
Beautiful macaron displays…
Two first’s in one day: experiencing a Munich market hall & a outdoor market.
The Viktualienmarkt is packed with all sorts of greatness, from a wide range of veggies & fruits, to flowers and decorative items as well as many great Bavarian specific food items.
I later had an afternoon beer at a quiet cafe near the Market, but the Nymphenburg Sekt stall in the background of the above photo was a buzzing little bar right in the middle of the market.
The sunlight was not shining into my beer so I asked the British couple next to me if I could photograph their’s.
