This has got to be the grandest and most beautiful market hall in Europe. Opened in 1897, the building—designed by Samu Pecz—underwent a thorough renovation and re-opened for its centenary. It's a massive, airy space filled with bright piles of food. The mezzanine level is crammed with dozens of folk embroidery and souvenir stands, plus a pleasant cafeteria, beer and food stalls. In the basement, you will find fish, pickles (savanyusag) and a supermarket as well as the hallowed Azsia—an international foods store. Be aware that butchers and greengrocers begin packing up their produce as much as an hour before closing.
