The colorful Farmers Market in Graz
It says quite a bit about the culinary culture of Graz that the busiest part of town is the old farmers market on a Saturday morning. People of all ages meander between the food-stands where local farmers sell their delicious products. Organically grown fruit and vegetables, meat, bread, fish and cheese are only some of the amazing things you will find in abundance on the beautiful square tucked away behind the opera house. Buying at Kaiser-Josef Markt doesn’t only guarantee top quality, but also an exciting shopping experience, which is why Graz swears by its favorite market and many gourmet restaurants get their products there as well. You could easily spend an hour wandering the square, sampling the food and maybe even stopping for a drink at one of the pop-up bars – and honestly, you should.
