Wherever we travel two of the main things we always try to visit are 1) the local cultures baths and 2) the food markets.  Budapest is a haven for both!!!!!

Construction of the Great Market Hall started in 1894 according to the design of Samu Petz. In 1896 a few days before the handover fire destroyed about half of the roof.  After repairing the roof the market opened on 15th March 1897.

The spacious interior holds a festival of vivid colours; the fresh products displayed in the stalls, strings of red paprika and garlic, Hungarian salamis, meats, fresh pastries, dairy products, kitchen utensils, Hungarian wines and pálinka, honey, tea, herb mixes. The fine selection of mustards and goulash sauces packed in tooth paste tubes can make great souvenirs – and add a yummy dash of flavor to many dishes.  Another great thing to find here is saffron, and at reasonable price

The second floor of the market holds several stores of Hungarian embroidery, white peasant shirts and other artS and craft products, as well as couple places to sit, eat and watch the action on the first floor!

  1. I shop here every time I visit. A coloyrful, exciting place that showcases Hungarian foods and crafts. The beigli and retes are to die for! Downstairs you can see retes (strudel) and beigli being prepared; upstairs, you can watch the langos and palacinta being made. Wonderful crafts and porcelain upstairs! Highly recommend. ❤❤❤❤❤
