Built in 1896, the Central Market Hall is the largest indoor market in Budapest. It’s shaped like a huge hangar, with lots of light coming in through the roof.
All sorts of goodies can be found here, though foodstuffs dominate. Fresh and dried chilis and garlic (these seem very popular amongst the locals). Meats, dried and fresh. Vegetables and fruits. Hungarian saffron and paprika. Pastries and cakes — i ate the best cream puff i’ve ever had here; it was sinfully delectable.
