The Central Market Hall in Budapest has been the largest indoor market in the city since the end of the 19th century. It is a large neo-gothic hall that stretches parallel with the direction of the Danube River.
The market has established itself as both a popular place for locals and tourists. Many locals visit the market daily to purchase the fresh produce that is offered in abundance.
I visited the market twice during my stay in Budapest and purchased fresh fruit and smoothies. The smoothies are freshly made from pure fruit and taste delicious.
You can buy meat here, fruit, souvenirs and many other things. It is a very good place for photographs; the different foods provide several contrasting colours and the large crowds of people are also fun to shoot.
I recommend going up to the second floor of the market where you can get a great view of the stalls and people below. The second floor is mainly comprised of souvenir stalls with a few food places too. The market is a good stop in the morning if you want some fresh fruit for breakfast. Butter Brothers is also nearby if you want some pastries and tea to go along with your fruit.
How to get there:
Take the Metro to Fővám tér and the market is across the road.
