Car Rental
Nowadays, wherever you stay in Budapest, you will surly find a grocery store within 500-600 meters of your apartment, hotel. Nevertheless, the larger markets are still the most popular places for purchasing everything meats, vegetables, etc.

The large market buildings host several smaller retail units, which offer a great variety when combined. There are traditional retailers, and also vendors who grow the vegetables in their own garden. We almost always have the chance to pick the fruits and vegetables on our own. If you purchase a greater quantity, you can taste the fruit prior to the purchase. It is rather uncommon to drive a bargain for vegetables and fruits nowadays. Some vendors, especially the ones who sell their own home-grown products, often give an extra amount free of charge.

The specialized retail units sell vegetables, fruits, meat, fish, sour vegetables (very popular in Hungary), cheese, bakery products, but you will also find catering units in the market buildings, like cafés, buffets and fast food. It is worth to visit these markets just in order to taste the local specialties, like the strudel, pancake and sausage. | Contact us
