Hand painted eggs

Is this a Budapest item? I love the eggs and wondered where I would be able to find them when I get to Budapest in May. Or are they only out at Easter time?

You can always buy these at the central market as well as at the finer Hungarian handicraft store on Vaci Utca. I find the largest variety in the stalls on the back wall on the mezzanine in the market.

Is the market open every day or just on weekends? Thanks so much. This is one shop I will plan on going to. Just have to look it up to find out how to get there!

It closes early on Saturday and opens for the week Monday morning. This is generally considered a "must see" in Budapest.

Make sure you budget at least 2-3 hours for the market. Better still make time and room for an authentic Hungarian breakfast and/or lunch while you are there. This is the one place where you can get something for everybody back home: hand embroidered hankies, lace, paprika in colorful containers, etc, etc. Also, you can grab lots of goodies to take back to your room to munch on later.

Great idea! We will plan accordingly! 2-3 hours shopping and lunch! Any one particular vendor for lunch? We love every food! Well...maybe not liver (for my husband), but me, yes, even liver!

I don't know if you can - probably. There were many to choose from in the market. Loved all that I bought and got them home without breaking. Good luck!
