    If you have some time to kill, consider visiting the central market for breakfast/lunch. There's a lot of vendors selling everything from meat to vegetables to cheeses to pastries. On the second floor, there are some ready-made-food options, restrooms, and lots of shops selling touristy knick-knacks of all kinds.

    The place to go for your fresh Paprika in Budapest. Food is sold on the ground floor, other stuff on the first floor.

    Lots of local food and souvenir to compare prices on. Tantalize your appetite on local cuisine found here. Also, you can buy fresh local produce or even those souvenirs for our loved ones back home! Nice place to mingle and catch many locals or even tourists bargaining in action ...

    Gigantic flea market like atmosphere in a large, open space. Come here for lunch and enjoy the aromas of soups, goulash and meats and then shop for everything from clothing, chess games, blown glass to handmade jewelry. Very busy on the weekend, but fun for people watching as well as grabbing some cheap eats.

    Excellent market hall in Budapest. Set up as two levels, with the bottom level having the typical market offerings (fruit, vegetables, meat, fish, cheese, etc.) and the upper level having crafts. I always like markets when travelling, so loved this place, although the upper level didn't impress me that much.

    Beautiful building, one of those great old wrought-iron situations with a huge glass-top central atrium. In my memory, it just goes up and up and up, like a fantastical department store...but one where the departments are just meat and cheese, and a smattering of veg. Oh, also, wine: we got little tumblers of tokaji, and someone had drawn smiley faces on the bottoms in red paint. Cheers!

    For traditional Hungarian foods - think paprika and lángos - the Central Market Hall is the first place you should visit. I'm not a huge lángos fan but there are a number of stalls offering this doughy snack, as well as everything else under the sun. Spices, vegetables, fruit, dried meats...the Central Market Hall is Budapest's largest indoor market, and has the bounty to prove it.
    On the second floor you can find more cafes and souvenir shops, including a beautiful selection of scarves and jewelry. Haggling is encouraged.

    Built by Eiffel, and only a few short steps from our apartment, this is the best place to get the freshest local fruits, vegetables, meats, and other food.

    This market has a little bit of everything. The food selections (prepared and fruit/veg) are good - keep an eye out for quality. The upstairs section has lots of small items and souvenirs to purchase. The vendors are generally very friendly and willing to work with you despite the language barrier. Leave yourself lots of time - market goes on forever!

    For me, markets are one of the most exciting parts of any city and I always set out to buy something to eat that I've never seen or tried before.. It was dried pork fat that I opted for here, and hard, dried sausages.

    It was also remarkably cheap for sort fruits - I was buying peaches, cherries, and plums by the boatload for next to nothing.

    The Central Market offers impressive architecture, unique produce, excellent pastries, and great prices. It is worth visiting with family or friends. There is authentic Hungarian food on the second floor, simply delicious.

    Definitely an interesting place to check out. During the time of my visit here I was eating very little meat (not a full blown vegetarian but close) so the meat shops located within this market totally skeeved me out! But aside from that you find tons of nick nacks and such and get some delicious fresh baked bread and pastries! Also a currency exchange booth located on the lower level!

    Check out the snack shops on the top floor. Enjoy a glass of Tokay wine. You earned it for being a bold adventurous traveler.

Description

Shop for your souvenirs of Hungary in one of Budapest's most recognizable landmarks, the Great Market Hall. Built in the late 19th century, this hall features a dazzling green and gold roof of Zsolnay tiling. Inside, the three tiers of shops sell a diverse cornucopia of goods. Start in the basement, where you can sample authentic Hungarian pickles, buy fish at the bustling fish market and even go to a traditional grocery store! The first floor features meats and produce, as well as more exotic foods, such as caviar, authentic Hungarian paprika and tokaji, a local sweet wine. Vendors on the top floor sell traditional souvenirs and delicious food, including lángos, a popular Hungarian fried dumpling.
