One of the loveliest market halls in Budapest, in the district 7. also known as the Jewish quarter at the neighbourhood of the Klauzál Park is filled with life once again after refurbishment reopened its gates to the public at

District VII., 11. Klauzál Square – Budapest.

Before  WW 2 the market and its surrounding venue was a busy living area. Koser butcher, bakery, wine and all sorts of groceries tents and were busy for shopping. For years it has not been renewed and during the past decades it certainly lost its charm and many of its shoppers.

Finally time has come to the old building to go through a full refurbishment from head-to-tow! It was built-in 1897, whereas previously stood, but destroyed by fire in 1874, the István Square’s theater. In this year, 5 Market Halls were opened in the Budapest. This one has become the III. out of the V. The market hall was upon the plans of the Municipal Engineering Office Architects, József Kommer and Pál Klunzinger.

Before  the official opening to the public took place, the district VII.  – Elizabeth City  – Mayor – Zsolt Vattamány  welcomed the renewed market hall for not only the local district’s shopping individuals and highlighted the new form of the building. Also added, the Klauzál Market Hall by the recent years, had degenerated into a shadow of its former beauty and function and so the local government decided to launch a revival project within EU financial support. Ervin Schmuck – managing director SPAR Hungary read his welcoming words to the opening in Hungarian language and the invited guest, media representatives appreciated his speech very much. As he added, during the renovation of the market hall area the SPAR developed a new level on the basement floor. It has its own brand products and meat from the company’s own plant of the controlled quality fresh meat products.

The Market from now on is bright and neat, the store s match nicely into the market hall’s spacious central section. The building’s metal frame and the walls for the shops covered with wood, really gives a pleasant sight. The ceilings are made of  glass, guaranteeing bright interiors, but as the Fall and Winter season is just ahead of us the  lighting of the market is guaranteed to take a look at the assortment.

On the basement floor’s central walking area are 14 farmers tables and dairy stores with home-made – dairy products, poultry meat stores and home-made sausages, salamis are available. For the time being, only a couple of small producers’ tables were filled with selling their own products. We can meet the producers and see their products are high quality. Fresh and more to it tasty and delicious seasonal fruits and veggies are available throughout the year.

The basement and its first floor has elevator access and is barrier-free for the disable shoppers inside the hall free WiFi is available for the customers. The area  is pay parking on the street.

The supermarket after the national laws limiting Sunday opening hours,  the Klauzál Market Hall will be accessible on Sundays between 6.30 a.m. to 6 p.m. On Saturday: 6 a.m. -2 p.m. and during the week days 6 a.m. -6 p.m. as well.

Going to the market for ages has been always popular, no mater where you live and now-a-days it seems even more to have become cool to go to the market, not just for shopping for the week-end but during the lunch hours to have a bite of food as well. We can meet the producers, the products are high quality. Hopefully, shopping folks to the Klauzál Market Hall will remain in favorite because of its wide selection of goods foods.

The whole day in-and-outside the market was rolling with raffle and stage shows. The day’s program ended with a huge concert, held by the Budapest Klezmer Band, the audience could hardy let go the band, cheered and expressed their appreciation praise by clapping.
