The largest and oldest indoor market in the city, Central Market Hall, offers a variety of food, candy, spirits, and souvenir stalls. Let your mouth water as you wander the first floor of this Neo-Gothic building past fresh produce, meats, sweets, spices, liquors, and wine. The second floor houses mostly souvenir shops and eateries, and the basement features butcher shops, a fish market, and pickled goods. Built in 1897 and restored in the 1990s, this market was the idea of Budapest's first mayor, Karoly Kamermayer, and is now one of the city's biggest tourist attractions. Try local specialties, such as deep-fried lángos. To visit Central Market Hall and other attractions in Budapest, use our Budapest day trip planner.

Central Market Hall reviews
Fake food - tourist prices - in a beautiful building. The kaviar is fake - made from sea weed. Lot's of plastic souvenirs. The street food restaurants are over priced.

It's very nice to visit the flea market. You will find all the local products of the country in this market as well as souvenir shops upstairs. Of course souvenirs prices are a little bit higher...
