Farmer´s markets Budapest

Hungary

 

Undust your bicycle and spring jacket and hit the road to the healthy and lively markets in the town. They are buzzing with people carrying baskets of fresh cilantro, spring onion and parsley. Which one should you try? We would suggest a tour around all of them. Some will offer 8 different honey types, while at other places you can buy homemade cakes from a sweet old lady or load your jar with fermented pickles. The products here are not only tasty, but chemical free. At certain places you can even trade used bikes. Who is hungry?

5. Lehel Market Hall

You can find all that you need in the Lehel market hall. That also means you need to watch out for what you buy, not to end up with products of supermarket quality. From cheaper Chinese kitchen ware to local producers and really good deals. What you might not know is that they collect used cooking oil there. It is not ecological to pour it into the sink, therefore you could bring it here and they discard it for you.

Opening hours:
M-F: 06:00-18:00
Saturday: 06:00-14:00
Sunday: 06:00-13:00

6. Central Market Hall

The Central Market Hall is the biggest interior marketplace in the city, first opened in 1897. The ground floor offers fruits, veggies, poultry, and butchers; mostly everything that you need for your delicious menu. Since it is beloved by tourists as much as by locals, here you would find many Hungarian souvenirs and the famous red pepper packed in embroidered little sacks. While the ground floor is there to fill your basket, the first floor will definitely fill your stomach. Dishes as langhos, pancakes, filled cabbage and goulash are being prepared here. And how lovely when the smell of those fills up the air.

Opening hours:
Monday: 06:00-17:00
Tue-Fri: 06:00-18:00
Saturday: 06:00-15:00
Address: Budapest, Vámház krt. 1-3, 1093

7. Hunyadi Square market

This recently renovated little market is awaiting the food lovers with 82 different stalls, both outside and inside. What you find here is smoked meat, bacon, sausages, fruits, and vegetables of high quality. There is a little old lady selling delicious homemade cakes. The poppy seed one is my absolute favourite which I would devour in the park right next to the market in a blink of an eye. Give it a try!
