Just off the Marienplatz, tucked in behind the back, is the market known as the Viktualienmarkt. To describe it as a market gives the wrong impression as rather than stalls the goods are for sale in shops, much as the meat market in Barnstaple, and semi-permanent shed like structures. There are some stalls, but these are on the top edge of the market. As well as being the place to go to buy your shopping, its also the place to go for a meal and/or drink. I only wish we had discovered it before lunch rather than after, still we did stop for cakes and for a talk with a little person suspended in mid-air!
