The market is a must see for tourists (but it is also filled with locals!). The pavilions were constructed from zeppelin hangers and their size and architecture are worth the visit alone but what’s inside and around them is also interesting. The market is on...More

We loved it here there were lots of places to eat and was really interesting walking round the market looking at the local food. We ate here at the takeaway bars and had a beer too. Deffo worth a visit.

We came upon the markets when walking around but it was only after our walking tour that we really understood what the markets were all about. They are fantastic! They’re working markets that are for locals, not for tourists like those in other countries. It...More

It's very large and totally interesting. Each old Zeppelin hanger specialises in certain produce. It's very much a working market full of locals. There is already stalls selling cooked food but when I was there in late February they were doing up an area to...More

This place seems to stretch for miles and its certainly worth a wander round. Loved looking around the food halls (in the hangars) but especially liked the street food stalls (open until 10.00). Stop here mid afternoon grab some food have a beer and watch...More

One of the biggest markets I've seen! It is divided essentially in 4 big parts and each one has like a theme. There's one for meat, other for fish, other for vegetables and fruits and my favourite had a lot of sweets (traditional bread, cakes)...More

Yes, the market is open every day. It is an amazing awesome place and is a MUST visit on a trip to Riga. Easy to fine behind the main railway station.
