Krems’ Gourmet Market

Every Saturday, at the town’s Pffarplatz, a viticule market is held in Krems. Among the the wide range of traditional products and specialities fresh from the region, there are poppy seed cakes known as Mohnzelten, which are also available with a haselnut filling.

In addition to bakery products and conserves, there are all manner vegetables, fish and dairy products, with the fish for example, coming from two small producers North of Krems. See https://fisch-zucht.at/cms/ and www.lafoco.at.

Among the cheeses stocked by the „Cheese Heroine“ are the goat and buffalo cheeses made by Robert Paget, whose farm in Diensdorf is only a quarter of a hour away. See www.bufala-connection.at.

In addition to traditional products there are empanadas, the Argentianian descendant of the Cornish pasty.

There is also hand-made ravioli, tortelloni and gnocci all with delectible fillings.
