Picture of the Week – July 19, 2015

The Great Market Hall, also known as the Central Market Hall, brims with people; not only tourists, but also locals who look to stock up on fresh fruits and vegetables, colourful berries, fine ham, and a good bottle of Tokaji or Villányi for the coming week.

I love the central market because it caters to all. Tourists love it because some of the best local produce can be found there at a good price; locals love it for the same reason. The last thing you want as a tourist is to know that you’re trapped in a tourist-only market full of vendors who are looking to rip you off for your Euro or U.S. Dollar.

Like, I’m sure, other local markets throughout the country, the freshness—and the attractive prices—of the fruits and berries at the Great Market Hall cannot be understated. It wouldn’t be out of the ordinary to want to visit its cozy aisles at least twice a week for the ultimate dose of fresh.
