The market Meet the producers Calendar and

Opening in August 2010, Parndorf farmers' market was the first in Austria to join the Earth Markets network. It takes place year-round every first Saturday of the month in the barn of a private rural house, and is managed by Monika Liehl with the help of Kerstin Rohrer, leader of the 80-member-strong Burgenland Convivium.


Parndorf, a village of just over 3000 inhabitants, lies less than 50 km from Vienna in the Burgenland, Austria's most eastern and flattest province, which is very suited to winegrowing. Bordering Hungary, Slovenia and Slovakia, it has an interesting mix of cultures and languages, including a Croatian linguistic minority.

Fifteen producers, all coming from within a distance of 40 km attend the market, sell bread, fresh fruit and vegetables, preserves, juices, spirits, cured meats, honey and other bee products (candles, soaps, propolis), body products, salt, milk and yoghurt, freshwater fish, goat cheese, meat and wine. These are some of the most interesting productions in the area, such as Waldherr, the baker who uses sourdough starter and self-ground wholemeal flour sourced from local grain, and the Michelits family that supplies Demeter biodynamic certified meat from their herd of 500 free-range beef cattle, exclusively fed from their own feed.
A stall selling street food is always present, where local chefs take turns cooking for eager market-goers. Local wine producers also take turns at the a stall, offering their products for sale and tasting.
