Central Market Hall, Budapest

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.

All photos taken with the Leica M9, 50mm Summilux ASPH f1.4. Click through the images for the larger versions on Flickr.
