Viktualienmarkt cat – Munich, September 2007

Munich's Viktualienmarkt is a feat for both the eyes and the tastebuds. The market started out as a farmers' market, moved there from the nearby Marienplatz in 1807 when the market outgrew the square. On an area covering 22,000m², 140 stalls and shops offer flowers, exotic fruit, game, poultry, spices, cheese, fish, juices and takeaway foods like leberkaese or bratwurst on a roll.  It's a great place to stroll, take photographs, have lunch, or just to spy on everyone from between the plants at the florist, like this tabby cat was doing.

This is part of a series of non-food photographs that will be published every Saturday on CookSister. Click here for a full list of photographs previously featured.  All photos featured in Saturday Snapshots are available to buy as greeting cards or prints in my RedBubble store.

Wonderlike foto! Ek dink jy het die 000 by die 22m²vergeet… Ons bly net buite München en ek is skoon verlief op die stad! Het net soos julle die Oktoberfest (Wiesn) geniet!
Baie geluk met die uitstekende food blog, jy is sommer op my desktop, so ek loer gereeld in!

Cute kitty! The market sounds fun too. This is why I need to travel again, see cats around the world and different markets.
