Shopping malls Budapest
Introduction Shopping malls Budapest
The most developed Shopping mall probably the West End at the end of the list.
The location probably the best in Budapest, in the inner city just behind the Western Railway station. Lots of shops can be found here, probably the best fast food available in Budapest at the North end of the lowest level. Other leading malls in Budapest are the Árkád (just recently has built a new building, so now is double in size ), Mammut I and II buildings, Allee, Mom Park, and Arena plaza – perhaps the best for clothes and fashion. All plazas is a little bit different, first has been built in 1994.
Shopping hasn’t been only made in plazas, lots of other opportunities in Budapest as well.

The big Market Hall is also a very interesting place to look at, mainly selling fruits, vegetables, spices, fishes and grocery. Location is:1093 Budapest Vámház körút 1-3 near to Pest side of the Franz Joseph bridge. Prices are moderate, and possible to find real curiosities, like far-east spices, souces, etc.
List of Market halls in Budapest
At most places you can buy basically fresh food, like vegetables, meat, cheap clothes but not everywhere, flowers, gifts, and this and that depending on the places. Some places they sell fried or bakes food as well. The habits are different place to place but at smaller suburb markets people usually start shopping at early morning, which mean if you arrive late, most interesting good are selled already, sometimes shops not open on Mondays, and close early in the afternoon. In the city center the markets are usually open during the day.
