Full description
Your insider guide will meet you in front of the Hard Rock Cafe at Vörösmarty Square and you will walk through the famous pedestrian street, getting acquainted with the most famous shops on Váci Street. After a brief introduction to the history of the Hungarian kitchen, you will start your descent into the peculiar world of this market. As you enter this over a century old building, you will be greeted immediately by true Hungarian mentality. Friendly vendors will offer their goods as your guide introduces you to the local market etiquette whilst leading you through the best stands.

Enjoy a hearty tasting of home grown local goods at various different stands of the market and meet the people who produce them. Sample warm scones with several Hungarian salamis such as winter or mangalica salami, and a super-spicy salami for the most courageous! If this wasn’t enough, you can chase it down with a wide range of offered pickled foods like cabbage, lángos, chalice, melons, and naturally, pickles.

To avoid leaving with a sour taste in your mouth, you’ll be guided to the sweetest stand of the market to try some home-made marmalade such as plum or lavender jam. Here, you can also taste famous local mushroom creams made from truffles. As the cherry on top, you will be treated to the finest handmade strudels you have ever tasted, made on the spot by a 100% genuine, Hungarian grandma.
