Open air markets are often where cities show off their best selves.

The Naschmarkt, at the confluence of Vienna’s first, fifth, and sixth districts, pulls out all the stops. Picture this: aisles lined with colorful assortments of food from ripe red tomatoes to fresh baklava to Turkish delight to dried fruit. Booths are stacked high with hundreds of bags of curry powder. Restaurants range from fish counters to bakeries. On Saturdays, a flea market sets up shop. Beware: excessive flirting with the young vendors along the walk may get you swindled into buying an absurd amount of candied nuts. Then again, who doesn’t love candied nuts?
