The viennese Brunnenmarkt is one of the longest city markets in Europe. About 200 market stands and just as many shops are lined along the 1,5 km long Brunnengasse. Daily the stands for fruit and vegetable are getting set up at 6 a.m. and put away 12 hours later in the evening. It´s a lot of work, to be done in all weather conditions – surely not everyones thing. Today most stands are managed by turks and their whole family, they know how to deal with fruit and vegetables. Every few hours, all around the clock, turkish bakers deliver a new batch of freshly oven-baked bread. Indians and Pakistani seem to have specialized on textiles.
