It's a bit difficult to answer your question because there are so many Markets available in Austria. I can give you some tips of Markets which I have visited by myself and some my friends have visited and recommended them.
The most of them are from Salzburg and around.

Salzburg City:

Schlosspark Hellbrunn Advent Zauber
Salzburger Christmas Market
Adventmarkt im BurghofFort Hohen Salzburg Christmas Market

Oberndorf bei Salzburg - Silent Night Town Oberndorf. Place where the song Silent Night was written.

Christmas Markets at Wolfgangsee Lake:
St Wolfgang im Salzkammergut
St. Gilgen

Vienna City Christmas Market at the City Hall or at Schönbrunn PalaceS.

Upper Austria:
Steyr Christmas Market

Innsbruck Old Town Market

Here some links that are useful to:

The season of Christmas Markets starts usually at the first weekend bevore the 1.Advent Sunday. There are differences at the opening ours of the markets some can be visited the whole week others just at the weekends. You can get this informations at on of the links.

Hi , as mentioned before there are a number of them around Vienna. Most of the products available are similar between the markets but some have unique items. One nice touch is to try to collect souvenir mugs from each one. Some markets share the mugs but most are different - you get the mugs for a deposit when buying hot wine etc.  My personal favourites : Rathaus , Schönbrunn , as well as the one close to Naschmarkt ( will need to look up the official name ). Enjoy ... And dress warmly ;)
