Every time I am in Riga I want to visit the central market, the smell , the noise, the friendly people and all the nice food and stuff you can buy. It really shows you what the normal latvians buy,
You can get alot of latvian specialities very cheap. You can not visit Riga without going to the market.

The central market is a very large area and even in the middle of a cold winter the outside stalls are full of whatever you need. Inside the 5 big you have a ample supplu of meat, poultry, cakes, vegtables, fish and all your other needs. The noises, the smells and the friendly faces makes a tour of this market a real pleasure.

Walking around the Central Market was a great way to get the Latvians talking to tourists. A lot to chose from, foods, handmade (and/or knitted) clothes etc.

The central market is actually 4 big hangars and a lot of stalls outside. They sell a lot of stuff, but food mostly. You can buy meat, fish, bread and pastries, cheese, vegetables and fruit at very reasonable prices. People are not that super friendly. They don't like it you're taking pictures without buying something. So ask permission first. But anyway still worth a visit.

The Central Market in Riga is located in the outskirt of Old Riga, but all the same quite central. It is really huge, partly indoors in big hangars and partly outdoors. You can buy all the food you want here at reasonable prices. All sort of clothes (not fashion wear) can also be bought here.
There were very few tourists, so this is part of the authentic Latvia
