My husband and I were able to visit this huge flea market with my Hungarian cousin, and we realized that having someone with us who spoke fluent Hungarian was a bonus. I’m not sure that we would have had such a great time without my cousin’s ability to know if we were getting good deals, and without his ability to... More

Plenty of Communist era items, brass knuckles, knives, guns. Vintage/antique furniture, watches, porcelain, interesting vintage dolls (my husband says they're 'weird', jewelry, etc. Fun way to spend the early morning on Saturday when the rest of the city is just waking up.

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
