The Neo-Renaissance style Central Market Hall (Tsentralni Hali) was opened in 1911 as an important trade market in the city.
On two levels you find nowadays all sorts of food stalls with local delicacies as well as shops for accessoires, clothes and souvenirs.
A few food stalls on the upper level offer simple and tasty meals. For more information about the food stalls please read my restaurant tip about the "Food stalls in the Central Market Hall".
The Central Market Hall can be found at the busy street bul. Knyaginya Maria Luiza, just opposite of the Banya Bashi Mosque.
Address: Central Market Hall, bul. Maria Luiza 28, Sofia
Tsentralni Halite or the Central Hall is across from Banya Bashi Mosque and opposite the Synagogue so it is a good place to stop to eat in between site seeing. The Hall itself is not a traditional farmers market, so don't expect anything quaint. The ground floor has primarily food shops, bakeries, delis and fruit vendors although there are some other small goods. The first floor has actual fast food eateries and non-food shops.
What to buy: Fruit. I bought some stuffed grape leaves and moussaka at a deli and they weren't very good.
What to pay: My grape leaves and moussaka cost 3.50BGL
This covered market hall was originally built in 1911, was opened again in 2000 after long years of restaurations.
It's a good place to buy some local produce like fruits, honey, meats, cheese, wines etc.
It's also very convenvient to grab a snack, as there are some food stalls on the upper floor.
