There are many events taking place in the biggest and most beautiful market hall of Budapest, in the Great Market Hall (in Hungarian: Nagycsarnok).

Most importantly, there are very nice cultural weekends when you can get to learn about another country for two days in addition to the Hungarian gastronomy and market customs.

    • Budapest Market Hall says:

      Dear Fernando, we are terribly sorry to hear about your misfortune.
      The Market Hall is a very busy place often full of people. Just like in any big city, including Budapest, London, Lisbon, Paris or Tokyo, bustling with hundreds of thousands of people, leaving your bag unattended is a major risk of getting it stolen.
      We hope that your card full of photos will be recovered.

      • Hi – will you be open on Easter Monday (March 28)? We are visiting from London and would love to stop by. If so, what are your hours?

        Thank you,

  2. Hola! I would like to know when is the next event of Mexican Food in the Market Hall? I recently moved to Hungary from Acapulco and i would like to purchase some ingredients from my Country. Thank you very much and have a nice day!

    Is the Great Market Hall (Central Market Hall) open on October 6, 2015? A Budapest tour guide told me that it would be closed that day due to a National Holiday. However, I have been unable to determine what holiday is on October 6, 2015. This is the only day I have available to visit the market. Can you clarify?

  4. Wendy Smits says:

    Dear, is the Central market place in Bydapest Open on Friday 21 August 2015?
    Kind regards

  5. We purchased some embroidered linens from the market when we were there and would like to purchase more to be shipped to us. Is there a directory of vendors available for us to shop online or wholesalers?

  6. Any days coming up for 2015? It is almost over…

  7. In Berlin gab es mal viele Markthallen, die meisten sind mittlerweile weg oder charmebefreit.

    I have about 50 tons of wild blue fin tuna that we can deliver from Croatia until the New Years. Daily we can deliver between 1000 to 2000kg. Each Tuna is between 40 and 60 kilograms; sometimes it can be between 100 and 150 kilograms. The price is very competitive and GUG ( not guts or gills)
    How would it be possible to see this Tuna at the Market in Budapest ?

    Warm Regards
