This is a great market with lots of "stuff", just about anything you may want if you are willing to look around. I live here and often get kitchenware, basic clothing like socks and underwear, and loads of gadgets such as fun lights etc. THIS...More

Came expecting a sort of 'China Town' experience of street food as advertised. Yes, there may be several stalls serving what looked/smelled like reasonable street food BUT- you are in the middle of an industrial estate. Absolutely no atmosphere, no local bars, just a succession...More

I love markets and tracking down interesting purchases however for me although this market was interesting due to its shear enormity! Sadly the merchandise was all the same and poor quality :( the food section was the most interesting.

Great destination if you live in Budapest and need cheap Made in China stuff - gloves, iPad cover, housewares, etc. Not really worth it otherwise. 10 minute tram ride from Blaja Luisa. Big expansive (not expensive) labyrinth of stalls on one side and a warehouse...More
