Klagenfurt’s Benedictine Market in downtown Klagenfurt offers everything your heart desires. It bustles with customers in front of the market stands on Thursdays and Saturdays between 06h30 and 13h30.
Numerous farmers from across Carinthia as well as neighboring Friuli in Italy and Slovenia, offer their best products. But the one common denominator in Carinthia are the multitude of apples available and the varieties are limitless and delicious!
The majority of Austria’s most popular apples come from Styria, the “green heart of Austria” as it is called. Every year, about 140,000 tons of the finest apples are picked there. About half of them stay in Austria and the remaining 70,000 tons are exported.
