Nice place to see and visit. The shops are organised. So it's easy to find of what you're looking for. There are also some restaurants upstairs selling street food and mostly Hungarian food which was good.

Not big, but nice old market with famous Hungarian hot sausages, paprika spicy and palinka :-) Lot of fresh vegetable and pork meat. Just perfect. It is MUST SEE attraction in Budapest.

Fascinating working market but many stalls targeted at tourists. Spend an hour wandering around and maybe buy a few souvenirs..

It is a beautiful market where you can have sone food. It is becoming popular and there are more and more tourists, so prices are increasing.

I really enjoyed the market hall in Budapest. They are famous in making the paprika and you can decently find a lot of flavors there.

I loved the Central Market. It is "touristy" but it's also a great glimpse into life in Budapest. I could have spent several hours here, but you should at least do a quick walk-through. I bought several souvenirs and sampled lots of food.

Went here for lunch. It was nice to stroll around the booths but it felt a bit touristy. The food in the first floor was good but not amazing. You have to pay for EVERYTHING -every Topping, every Pickle and every splash of Sour creme,...More

It is a tradition in Hungary/Budapest that markets and shops kept closed on their National Day, 15th of March. Next day, the 16th of March, everything would be open as usual.

No need tickets to enter the market. I like it because the atm machine is near the entrance 🤣. You can pay using euro or forint. Normally, i would convert first to see which currency is cheaper to use.
