A really good market central to the city. We went to try out the ‘street food’ and it was delicious although it is a little expensive compared to other outlets in Budapest. This is probably due to the amount of tourists that visit the upper...More

Certainly worth a visit but we found the wares very expensive and certainly the ground floor was very all very similar. Good photo opps and the food and the more eclectic stalls upstairs worth a look.

Wrap up warm if you visit in winter as this market hall is cold. But it's worth it as it is beautiful. There are loads of food stalls on the ground floor. Upstairs the first floor has more tourist items such as embroidered cloths, gorgeous...More

We always look for the opportunity to visit markets when traveling. This is a nice market, combining both lots of local food products on the ground floor, while offering all the tourist souvenir stuff on the first floor. One advise, stay away from the foodcorner,...More

The downstairs of the market is not really for tourists but upstairs is great for lunch. There are so many food outlets selling traditional Hungarian food. It is super buzzing. We went around 2pm and you could hardly move therefore I would recommend going a...More

Seems like a place for grocery shopping with fruit, veg and meat on the ground floor, fish in the basement and eateries upstairs where you can buy some local dishes. We had a langos each and I would say less is more - one is...More

The structure of the huge market is fascinating. On the ground floor there’s a huge choice of fresh fruit, veg, meat and cheese. There are also lots of stalls selling paprika aimed at the tourist market. The prices vary considerably. So check the prices. Upstairs...More

It is a tradition in Hungary/Budapest that markets and shops kept closed on their National Day, 15th of March. Next day, the 16th of March, everything would be open as usual.

No need tickets to enter the market. I like it because the atm machine is near the entrance 🤣. You can pay using euro or forint. Normally, i would convert first to see which currency is cheaper to use.
