The building is an historic one, renovated in the 1990s. It was designed and built by Samu Pecz around 1896. It is the largest market in Budapest and offers combination of food and tourist things to buy. I found the building gorgeous and, as always, enjoyed the variety of foodstuffs available. There are small cafes and restaurants inside. The food is on the ground floor, the souvenir stands aer on the balcony.
So it is a combination of shopping and "things to do."
What to buy: This is heaven if you are staying in an apartment and wish to cook.
What to pay: Wandering around is free. But there are plenty of temptations!

Today, everyone is Campona Nagytétény shopping center to name but few are familiar with the story, which dates back to the Roman era. The city is named after the leader is likely to Tétény.
Hensel Aquincum next to a small Roman settlement was fortified with the Campona Castellummal lying on the Danube limes, ie military and border defense line functioned as an integral unit. The ancient line of defense was that one of the weakest stations, where most break-ins and arson occurred, the archaeologists have found traces of which are also found in the XXII. district.

Lots of souvenir stores are located at Vaci utca which is the most commercial street anyway. We bought some magnets at Gellert Hill near the citadel, but you can find more tourist traps at Castle Hill or everywhere near touristic spots. Ceramics, painted eggs, paprika of course, not only the real one but plastic in every shape and style (there’s even a paprika vodka!), some local wines (most of them seemed great in low price scale, maybe we were lucky), palinka (traditional brandy), salami and sausage are also famous we didn’t buy just tried at the market
The largest flea market is Esceri (at Nagykorosi ut 156)open daily 8.00-16.00 (a bit earlier in weekends)
During Christmas don’t miss the popular market of Vorosmarty square full of wooden stalls and lights (typical central Europe)

The Christmas Fair is traditionally held on Vorosmarty ter, in the heart of the Inner City (Downtown). Snow, special lights, Christmas ornaments and the taste of hot wine and 'kolbász' (~sausage) ensure the special atmosphere of the Christmas Fair.
What to buy: Buy any of the so-called 'Hungarikum' products. Paprika, csipke, Unicum, wine, other souvenirs... anything you find interesting at the fair!
What to pay: The fair takes place in the middle of the major tourist area of the city, therefore souvenirs are more expensive than in other Christmas fairs in Budapest (e.g. in Budapest Arena at Nepstadion metro station).

There are number of stands along the bank of Danube, especially in front of Vigado, offering some pretty interesting local craft souveniers. If one is good in burgaining wont spend too much money here in bying souveniers for family and friends. The major problem could be language barier because this guys here dont speak much other languages besides Hungarian.

The plans for the interior decoration of the café were completed by the artisan Henrik Darilek in the years after 1910. Fine woods, marble and bronze were used. The ceilings were decorated with rococo plaster work in Louis XIV style; the chandeliers and wall lamps were created in Maria Theresa Style. Gerbeaud had secessionist style tables sent from the Paris World Fair so that the elegant ambiance would be perfect. During this time, however, the effects of the First World War were felt ever more strongly, even in the Gerbeaud House.
What to buy: For more than 150 years Gerbeaud has defined what we know as a café and confectionery.

Budapest's largest flea market is off the beaten track though, in spite of that for the tourists is worthy to visit here. On the swarming market not only the shopping, but looking around and searching is an experience.
Open: Mon-Fr: 08.00 - 16.00 Sat: 06.00 - 15.00 Sun: 08.00 - 13.00
What to buy: Here everything can be found, everything is for sale: antique objects, violins, gramophones, books, chinas, coaly irons, carpets, old soda-water bottles, feathers, dinner services, coins, military relic, laces etc. The old copper mortars, buckled glass, tin soldiers, military honours quote back a disappeared world. It is not miracle , if the visitor feels, as if the time would have stopped here.
What to pay: It is not allowed to omit the bargain from the game, since this is a rite of shopping. The shopper has to decide it, what is the maximum sum, which he is willing to pay for the chosen object.
