Apart from some architectural value of the market's buildings there's absolutely no point in going there. Unless you're looking to buy local fish preserves or caviar. Overall a great disappontment.

This is probably one of the best markets ever! There is so much to choose from, so many fresh and local products. Truly magnificent, and at least for us it was a great way to spend time! I would definitely recommend to pay a visit here when visiting Riga.

I was fascinated by how the segragation was done. Vegetable section, meat, fish, sweets,etc. It supports local sellers to market their goods and fresh produce. Bought bread varieties with meat and cabbage stuffings. Very delicious. Also available is a wide selection of locally produced honey.

This place is huge!! There are several large buildings packed wall to wall with food. For example, one is meat, one is fish etc. Definitely worth a visit and there are free tasters at some of the market stalls.

Probably the highlight of my trip to Riga was this enormous indoor market in what looks like airport hangers. Wonderful insight into local life and just a fascinating walkabout. One of the most interesting markets I've ever been to. Couldn't recommend it highly enough.

Is the biggest market we ever seen. Lots of things to choose from. Fresh food and souvenirs and clothes just everything. We went to nice little caffee inside for breakfast and it was so nice and yummy and very cheap. There was many people shopping there mainly ealderly people. I got myself nice Russian dolls and honey:)
