Description

The smell of homemade sugared rolls, hot frying meat, and buttered lángos rises up from the wide Vörösmarty square just as steam rises from the hot mulled wine also available. The Budapest market is the largest in Hungary and fills up a square that's just a stroll away from the Danube River. For most of December, visitors and locals can browse through over 100 stands offering handmade porcelain, wooden boxes and toys, jewelry and traditional weavings, while watching food cook in the traditional Hungarian ovens, and see the folk dancers perform. The Budapest market differs from most European holiday markets in that it strictly enforces a handcraft-only policy. That means you'll likely be buying Transylvanian tapestries and handmade leather goods directly from the hands that made them. This is a great place to find a unique gift for the person that has everything.
