This is Budapest's biggest market, though it has become a tourist magnet since its renovation for the millecentenary celebrations in 1996. Still, plenty of locals come here for the fruit, vegetables, deli items, fish and meat. Head up to the 1st floor for Hungarian folk costumes, dolls, painted eggs, embroidered tablecloths, carved hunting knives and other souvenirs.
Gourmets will appreciate the Hungarian and other treats available at a fraction of what they'd cost in the shops on nearby Váci utca – shrink-wrapped and potted foie gras, garlands of dried paprika, souvenir sacks and tins of paprika powder, and as many kinds of honey as you'd care to name.
