After reading the reviews here about Sunday being a good day to go (we were busy Saturday), we took the metro and bus and got there without a problem. Unfortunately we discovered that only about a quarter of the vendors show up on Sundays to open their stalls. This was extremely disappointing as we missed out on lots of potentially... More

Very nice people, only 50% of the shops were open but still a lot to offer. Very well reachable by public transport. Don't forget to haggle though!

I'm a history buff and I'd read that Ecseri flea market offers Soviet, WW II and fascist items mixed in with antiques, vintage, and strange stuff. I trekked out on bus 54 from Boráros tér on Sunday morning. Like most large flea markets and antique fairs, you never know what you will find if you look. Sunday is less crowded... More

On Saturday at least, this is a bustling and interesting flea market (good café in the corner too). It's nowhere near the Esceri Ut metro stop though! This oversight meant we had to take a further tram and bus ride to the site wondering if it was going to be worth the effort. It was. It was still a decent... More

An eclectic collection of true antiques, vintage (and not so vintage) collectibles, and second-hand books, baubles, linens, and clothes. You need patience for this market: many of the stalls are piled high with boxes and junk, and it can be difficult to get to the good stuff, but there are gems, depending on what you looking for. This is the... More

Me and my friend ventured here after reading reviews and hearing recommendations. It was a rainy day so not all was open, but what we saw was worth the visit. A mixture of antiques, clothes etc. some at very good low prices. I preferred this market to the grand centre market but it does differ. I'd go here if your... More

This was a fun afternoon just to see what was there. Although lots of clothing (seemed more like a yard sale at a house), there were some nice pieces hidden among it all. I found some unique pottery.

I visited Ecseri flea market twice during my weekend trip to Budapest. :) Even though it was off season and not all stalls/vendors were open a lot of them still were. Considering the low amount of visitors it almost felt like we had the market to ourselves! Great opportunity to find antique Hungarian items, ranging from clothing to trinkets to... More
