This flea market is different than others; in a suburb of Budapest, you'll find the most versatile objects for sale: from golden statues to antique watches; from age-old crockery to rusty instruments; and from communist clothing and artifacts to Nazi symbols. Definitely worth a visit...More

Ecseri Flea Market is on the outskirts of Budapest. Don't let this factor alone put you off visiting, as it can be reached from the centre in no time by a Tram and bus within about 30-40 mins. The journey to Ecseri helped build up...More

This out of the city market is an absolute must if you enjoy rummaging around second hand shops or Antique markets. It was relatively easy to get there and the stall and small shops were filled with fantastic items. The only downside to the visit...More

This is a very interesting market, with many stalls selling all kinds of weird and wonderful things. As a collector, I spotted a lot of fakes, so be on your guard, but there are also bargains to be had if you are prepared to haggle,...More

This market is full of local colour. Interesting domestic antiques. Friendly stall holders but nobody speaking English (I'm not blaming them for that). Don't expect any bargain or anything of quality. All the military antiques are certainly reproduction. Go for an experience and not for...More

Went on Monday June 11 late morning and just a few places were open. Not worth the trip out of the main city. Some shops are interesting and some have basically garage sale stuff. Not sure of schedule when more stalls are open but you...More

This market was still open on a Sunday morning despite the snow. The market is a taxi ride out of the city centre into the suburbs (approx 15/20mins £15~). Lots of interesting items, particularly if you're interested in militaria. Our group would have bought several...More

The market seems to be best on Saturday, more people at the inclosed area and in the outside weekend area. I posted a photo of their hours. Can't answer your real question.
