This is Budapest’s largest indoor market, not an architectural wonder, more a working market used by the locals as well. Smoked meats, sausages, cheeses, traditional pastries and paprika, paprika, paprika are mentioned in most of the reviews suggesting variety is not the Hungarian spice of life.

The ground floor of the market is piled high with fresh produce - paprika, tokaji and caviar are particularly well represented - and absolutely stacked to the rafters in harvest season in September and October, while the upper level has the kind of food you buy and eat on the spot. You can also shop for tourist charmers like tablecloths, chess boards and Hungarian clothes and dolls on the top floor, at lower prices than you’ll find on the main streets.

The roof was re-done in 1999, but the distinctive tiles were repaired rather than replaced.

The market’s hours are 6am to 6pm Monday to Friday and 6am through 2pm Saturday.

Fovam Ter, 9th, Budapest
