12 Dec Farmer’s Market, Salzburg, Austria
Before leaving Salzburg we had time to wander around the farmers market in Universitätsplatz (we didn’t go to the Christmas market) and the oldest bakery in the city. From the old bakery I got a 1kg round, flat loaf of stone-baked rye bread (€3.90). At one of the farmers market stalls we bought a poppy seed strudel (€2.50), a gingerbread cookie with devil icing decoration (€1) and a hollow, cylindrical Hungarian sweet bread with cinnamon sugar (€4). The Hungarian sweet bread was the nicest of the things we bought. They were freshly baked in a rotisserie type oven. There were also chocolate and nut fillings available. A2 and I tasted sample of a soft cheese with what looked like caraway seeds on top.
