Neighborhood: District VII / Jewish Quarter
District VII is the very heart of Budapest and houses the city’s Jewish Quarter. Its streets are lively and colorful, its buildings narrate different histories in an assortment of architectural styles, and its cafes and bars are frequented and loved by the enthusiastic crowds. Grand and magnificent, the striking star of the district is the Great Synagogue, the largest in Europe and one of the biggest in the world. Distinctly Moorish in style, crowned by the twin onion shaped domes, the Synagogue is the very emblem of District VII and one of the main attractions in the capital.

Klauzál Square Market Hall had never been my favorite. There are much better markets at Vámház körút the Central Market Hall or Lehel Market Hall. It is just more convenient to carry a few kgs of potatoes or other vegetables from a short distance, than from a faraway place. The Market was renovated and made prettier a few years ago, and it shows now, but because it isn't big enough, the choices are less than on a big market. Now when I walked in, there was a long queue of people waiting patiently. What is given away here free of charge?- I asked jokingly. For my biggest surprise, the answer was, that the council is giving free of charge Xmas trees. When I had a better look, behind the fence, I could see a huge pile of Xmas trees. There were so many of them, that despite a large number of people, I'm sure, that no one went home empty-handed. It was a very kind thought, suitable to the Xmas spirit, to help people to have the symbol of this festive season, that can be quite pricey for the ones who are in poor financial conditions, that unfortunately isn't rare in, Hungary.
Going inside the market I found abundant fruits, vegetables, and meat products, but it wasn't a market day and except of people waiting for the Xmas trees, there were only a very few customers. There are a bakery and a dairy products shop, a counter with smoked goods, and also a place where you can buy fried liverwurst, black pudding, and sausage that are very beloved by Hungarians, so there were a few people having their lunch. There is also a sizeable Spar Supermarket, but I have to admit, that I didn't go upstairs since all that I could see when I looked up were put up shutters.
I think if you're after some special or rare food, better if you try it on another market.

Very well kept and large with multiple units and free standing stalls,just a pity they are 95% empty. What is there is good but there is just not enough of it.

It was just simply amazing ❤️ the people were kind and friendly and they were helpful. You could find everything there to take back home. It was a bit expensive but affordable

The market hall was beautiful but there wasn't really much there.

My wife wanted to use the toilet- the machine took her money but then wouldn't let her through. There was no-one to ask and the man at the front desk spoke no English. As there was an English translation on an advert at the entrance to the market; the market is on the edge of a really tourist area and many Hungarians speak great English, I suggest they find someone different to help in this role.

Great market. Make sure to go early, It opens at 6am and starts getting crowded around 9am, lots to see and do and the food is great.

After visiting several of these traditional market halls around many cities on Europe, this is less impressive. Open fruit and veg downstairs, and down one side a Spa poking its nose in. Upstairs was hardly open when we visited then a nice 300 forint charge to use the toilet. Really ?

Nicely renovated building at Klauzal Square. Always crowded. Upstairs there are smaller shops where you can find typical Hungarian products and food as well. The market area is quite big, lovely colors od fruits and veggies. There is an ALDI under the market.

OK, so the building is renovated and looks very nice. There are some vendors downstairs who are definitely not farmers so if you are looking for the real deal as far as local fruits and veggies than go to Hold st. or Lehel square. Lehel is a bit more run down but has a great selection of stuff. Anyway so back to Klauzal the market isn't impressive but if you want to try what real hungarian gulyas tastes like go upstairs to the little ma and pa soup kitchen. This elderly couple is there every day and they cook the food right there on the stove. Usually they have a couple of stews, some cream vegetables, crepes and the best gulyas soup I have tried in a restaurant. But you have to go early because by 2pm very few things are left,

We were amazed at the range of chicken, pork and sausage products on sale here, as well as herbs, spices, fruit and vegetables. The chicken feet, brains and combs aren't to our taste but we enjoyed looking and did buy some local paprika. It's definitely worth a trip to see this place.

Lovely renovated market for shopping and eating. Less touristic than the big market on the Danube but in the best neighborhood for those looking for pubs and nightlife. Recommended.
