  • If you want an authentic market that is frequented by locals then visit this attraction. Full to the brim downstairs with fresh food and an almost rustic atmosphere. Upstairs there's the usual tat fou...  more »
  • A must once in a lifetime visit, mesmerising scenic beauty. Most importantly people are very helpful and tour guides and drivers are very safe. We had a lovely time n wish to go back again.  more »
  • Why go to a central (tourist) market, where everything is more expensive and jostle among tourists of the anthill. Each time in Budapest tried to get on another market. Mostly it depends on the area in which they live during this trip. It once lived near the Metro station Lehel ter, i.e. about market Lehel. Buyers at times less than at the central market. Choice of products is absolutely the same. Quality at an altitude of. No queues. Prices slightly, but still below.

  • Great place, where you can buy fresh local produce, and have traditional Hungarian meals that locals eat every day. Best time to go during late morning, and have lunch there then wander about.
  • One of the best market in Budapest. Good fresh meat and vegetables from local producers too. Parking is OK. Prices are good. The design of the building is at least controversial but better use the word ugly.
  • This is where Hungarians go; they don't really want to be pestered by tourists having a bit of post-communistic theme park entertainment and taking endless selfies. It's a very strange building by architect and designer László Rajk Jr. looks like a Memphis sideboard on steroids, any students of architecture should have a look. The food hall is well stocked, meats and brown things round the outside, fresh fruit and vegetables in the centre; upstairs for clothing and low cost, lower quality general wear. Please visit, but please respect that this isn't principally a tourist attraction.
  • Not crowded a bit cheaper than other fancy markets but a small one. Nice anx fresh fruits and veggies though.
  • Thanks to the many kind of shops and foods there are some bad smell at the entrance but other than that it's a nice place with high variety of honey, vegetables, fruits and meats, so overall a nice 'bazaar'.
