Very busy multi-level indoor market. Top floor has textiles, leather goods, souvenirs and a food ‘court’, main floor is fresh meat, paprika, cheese, etc., and bottom level is produce and fish.

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
