We when here twice while in Riga. Great variety of foods and very cheap. Also loved the tailor which altered a few things for a few euros. Its upstairs from the market.

The market is in old Zeplin hangers and even if you don't buy anything it is worth the look. The quality of the fruit, veg and fish is better than any I have ever seen. The prices are very reasonable. The flowers and plants are brilliant, why go to the Chelsea Flower Show or Keukenhof. .

Very busy market full of locals doing their daily shopping. The flower market is bursting with colour in spring and the fish market offers an impressive variety, difficult to find in other countries in Europe. Full of locals, so ideal for people watching.

Before visiting Riga all the guidebooks and websites etc. mentioned the Central Market as a must-see on par with the Old Town. It was not far from my hotel. Actually I was rather disappointed with it. Yes, it is huge both inside the hangars and the stalls outside and the fruit and veg stalls were particularly numerous. Never seen so... More

The Riga Central Market is located in 5 Zeplin Hangers plus outdoor stalls. With over 3,000 vendors there is everything you want from fresh fish and meats to clothing and electronics. Products at all price points with a feeling of being clean and spacious.

This was the highlight of my trip to Riga. The multi-halled Central Market offers copious quantities and varieties of local and imported food. There are also clothes, trinkets and amber available for bargain prices. Make every effort to visit this place!

Saw the hangars from bus terminal upon arrival from Tallinn on Lux Express. Very cold late October day but great couple hours looking and watching locals go about their lives. All sorts of local food, produce and knick knacks for sale and wife went mad buying Amber jewellery and other presents. Lots of clothing and antiques (possibly) and the hangars... More

Great market near the train and bus station in Riga. It's labelled as the largest indoor market in Europe and I can believe it. Each hanger is split into a different market and its great to wander around looking at all the stalls. It's much cheaper than in the old town and its full of locals so that is always... More

First of all: don't expect a fancy west-Europe market where everything looks like a museum. This is a real market: authentic and full of locals. What I liked most is the possibility to see how real Latvians are, and how is their cuisine. We walked around and bought some fresh products that we tasted later while sitting in a small... More
