Definitely worth a visit - It’s a huge market with outdoor stalls and 5 interconnected buildings - Each specialising in a specific area like meat, fish, vegetables, dry goods and cooked food. The restored buildings were previously part of a railway station so if you go with a tour guide as we did, you get to see the rooftop of one of the buildings with the old railway tracks still intact. We also got to see the 2-acre basement that is below the entire market.
Rather empty on a Monday morning but the produce was plentiful and the produce fresh.

Worth a visit to see all the local produce, fish and meat. Wasn't quite as bustling as I had expected but it was worth the trip and explore anyway

Riga’s central market which is housed in Zeppelin hangers is a sight to behold.
There is an incredible range of fresh and smoked fish and cavier in one building and wonderful fresh meats in another. There is also a seperate building for fresh fruit and vegetables but unfortunately the bakers building was not open when we visited. However one can easily spend a couple of hours just wandering around taking in the sights and smells as well as purchasing the odd delicacy here and there..

We visited this place twice, the first time on a food tasting walking tour and then we went back on our own.
Each hangar specialises in certain products from meat, fish, vegetables, dairy and a specialist food hall.
The outdoor area has various stalls and we enjoyed our walking tour as our guide handpicked Latvian products to try.
There is a kind of bar at the back of the meat market that sells local beer the can be drunk there or taken away in plastic bottles. This was the cheapest place we found in Riga for alcohol with prices ranging from 90p to £1.30 a pint.
The toilets here will cost you 50c and the market closes everyday at 6pm.
One cautionary note our guide warned us of pickpockets.

It was closed already, but I was able to still enjoy my visit. After hours it’s even better, because an empty corridors and streets make it a bit dodgy and seems like a post apocalyptic world

If you've never seen an indoor market before, then this may be interesting. If you've seen anything like this before, then this one will be very disappointing. It's barely open, full of cheap tat (low quality items), and feels dirty.
I don't think it's a bad place to go, per se, but I've seen about a hundred versions of this done better elsewhere.

Fabulous Market. Respectful sellers. Despite language barriers but they try to help. Good quality local foods. There is a local mini restaurant inside the market mainly on the meat market which offering the very delicious local foods. Recommended !!

Fab market, primarily for daily living with a meat hall, fish hall, veg/fruit, but there is a trinkets hall and an artisan hall with bakeries, fudge and treats.
We enjoyed a light meal here with beer and returned a second day for a wander as there are also outside stalls although many Offering similar products.
