Visited market on a Friday, half of the shops were closed and almost we were the only visitors in the entire market. We walked around, started with the covered area. Vendors can smell from a distance if you are a cheap fellow or you are going to buy something. Everything cost HUF 5000, 10000, 25000, they don't really use figures... More

If your a treasure hunter and you love to find those special items... then this is the place for you! The market is filled with unique items and interesting sights. I can highly recommend this market to any tourist who is willing to take an adventure and mingle with the locals. Be ready to barter and haggle the prices and... More

I think the place is quite overrated. Souvenirs in particular are not so unique, as the reviews would have you believe.

The basics: As other reviewers have said, it is easy to get to via public transportation (I took the #2 Tram and Bus 54). In my opinion it is safe - it's sort of in the suburbs. Not a dodgy part of town. Didn't cost anything to get in. Not a lot of english speakers but it's easy enough to... More

Getting there.. Take metro 4, green line to Kalvin Ter, then change to metro 3 blue line to Hutar Ut....get to ground level and take bus 89E and disembark at the 5th stop, HASZNALTCIKK PRAC. Cross the highway using overhead bridge and you will see it. Lots of junk, good ones, and not so useful ones...a lot of WW II... More

I love going to flea markets in different countries and Ecseri didn't disappoint. We went on a Saturday, nearly all shops were open and the crowds weren't bad. A wide range of goods, in a wide variety of condition are sold there. If you want to get a good deal be prepared to haggle. I know Americans can have difficulty... More

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
