Central Market Hall Tours

The Central Market Hall is the largest indoor market in Budapest, Hungary. The ornate building is more than 100 years old and has three stories filled with stalls. The roof is still original and is covered in colorful Zsolnay tiles. There are four other markets in Budapest that were built in the same style with similar roofs, and all five opened on February 15, 1897.

The market hall is frequently visited by tourists, though many locals shop here on a regular basis as well. There are stalls selling fruits and vegetables, Hungarian meats, fish, local cheeses, Hungarian herbs and spices, Hungarian wines and spirits, clothing, purses, accessories, and souvenirs. There are also a few restaurants where you can try local dishes such as lángos, which is yeast-based dough deep fried in oil and topped with different things like sour cream, cheese, and garlic. The Central Market Hall often holds special events featuring the cuisine of foreign countries. These events are generally held on Fridays and Saturdays.

Practical Info

The Central Market Hall is located at Vámház krt. 1-3 at the Pest end of the Liberty Bridge. To get to the market hall, take the M4 metro line to the Fővám tér station. The market hall opens at 6am Monday through Saturday and is closed on Sundays. It closes at 5pm on Monday, at 6pm Tuesday through Friday, and at 3pm on Saturday.
