A little disappointed with what we found. The stall owners had no interest in helping you, instead they just wanted to sit around and talk to each other. There are some real hidden gems in the enclosed stalls. Could do with freshening up and it's also very difficult to get to.

Great place for antique hunters. Though it a bit far from city centre really worth visiting. Many shops and friendly people.

Helped by excellent TripAdvisor reviews we took a taxi from our central hotel -18 mins - and rang him for our return trip although there are taxis at the market Saturday morning. Hot. Not crowded and the sellers - most of whom do not speak English - did not hassle us! Lots of old Hungary here which we found an... More

I went there today, which is a Saturday. It is supposed the most busy day among a week there, which means all stores are open and most amount of goods you can see. While, my problem is I arrived a bit late. Saturday schedule is 8:00 to 13:00. I arrived there at noon. So I only have one hour to... More

We really had fun here. Got a cheap vintage car for my son (£1.50) a print for me (£10) a vintage Russian chess clock for my other half (£6) and a turtle lamp (£30 and unique) top tips; go to the non regular stalls first for bargains and definitely try a langon (sp?) potato pancake - delicious and about 50p....

The Lonely Planet book gave great directions for public bus routes out to Esceri. I went on my own at about 2.30 pm on a Wednesday the first time, -and the stalls were mostly closed or closing. It was still an incredible insight into a massive open-air-disorganised museum of Hungarian "stuff". There were only two other shoppers there, but the... More

A long way to travel from the centre and a massive disapponitment. I went on a Friday morning and I was one of about five visiting the market. I was expecting a market with at least some bric-a-brac, rather like a car boot sale. Instead there was hardly anything outside these tiny indoor units. They then had something like maybe... More

This flea market is situated a way out from the city centre so the best way to get there is by taxi. We were recommended to book our taxis there and back in advance which we did. (Watch out for the beautifully crafted eagle statue en route.) We arrived shortly after opening time only to discover that hardly anyone was... More

It's a bit of a trek from the city centre but well worth a visit if you love browsing at flea markets. It's a large market with a mixture of open air stalls, shops and lock-ups. I found the sellers were open to haggling. Very few speak English so take a pen and paper to scribble down your offers... I... More
