One of the most interesting place including produce market and souvenir shops. Small independent booths. Go down stairs to see pickle shop and get souvenir for less price than busy upstairs. There are many choices of street food. We enjoyed it

If you are looking for a real taste of Budapest and some great souvenirs this is the place to go to. The selection of food and gifts has to be seen to be believed plus the prices are very reasonable. Definitely a must see venue.

The building is beautiful. It’s a great place to wander around and see unique Hungarian foods and spices. The fruit I bought was fresh and reasonably priced. I would skip the second floor. I found it crowded and full of tourist junk. There are better...More

Great building and market. Stalls offer all things “paprika” and other Hungarian souvenir, along with beautifully displayed produce, salamis, cheeses, bakery goods to name a few. It also has restaurants offering basic Hungarian food

We came to walk around for a short time, but this place is HUGE. The first floor is just magnificant looking food to take home. The second floor is prepared foods (most only take cash), crafts, leather goods, etc. We ended up spending a lot...More

Found it by accident, hidden behind the Budapest University building. The indoor market is vast. The ground floor is dedicated predominantly to fruit and vegetable stalls and butcher's shops. In the aisles are various sellers of local goods. Watch out - there are a lot...More

Unless you want fresh food or souvenirs then you could miss this out from your visit. It is however well worth the trip to go round and see if you have the time. I’m not a big shopper when on a break so 15 minutes...More

Of course, the choice is huge. And this is a plus. There is everything your heart desires. But we were disappointed by the choice of buying raspberries. We paid 3 times more than we could pay from another seller. Look closely at the price tags....More

I also agree that eating outside the Central Market Hall is a better idea. There are so many places along Vaci Utca that are more affordable and have more seating options. Just browse around the CM Hall and get an impression... More
