Flea markets in Budapest (Hungary)


With a unique, youthful atmosphere, a world-class classical music scene as well as a pulsating night life increasingly appreciated among European youth, an exceptionally rich offering of natural thermal baths, and, last but not least, markets and shops showcasing eclectic collections of true antiques & vintage collectibles, Budapest is one of Europe’s most delightful and enjoyable cities.

Due to its scenic setting, its culture and its architecture, it more than deserves its nickname of “Paris of the East”.

Budapest has three major flea markets which are worth visiting: the Ecseri Flea Market, the Erzsébet tér Flea Market and the Zichy Mihály út 14 Flea Market.

    The second point is not existing anymore, Erzsebet Ter Fleamarket is a thing of the past, but there is a Flea Market Shop in the city center instead, its called “Bolhapalota”, which means Flea-Palace , check it on the internet to see if it would fit in the article…

    • Hi Anton, thanks for sharing this info! I will update the review (feature Erzebet as discontinued) and investigate the Bolhapalota flea market. I’m sure it could fit in the article :) thanks again!

    • Hi Hajnalka, thanks for sharing! We’d love to add the Antik PLACC to our list of flea markets in Budapest. Have you been there? How is it like? If you wish to write a quick review of this flea market, we’d be more than happy to feature it in our article “Flea markets in Budapest”, together with your name/website. See you around!

      • Hey, I’m actually the founder of Budapest Local, so the short article was written by us. I’ve been to Antik Placc; it’s really great and getting very popular in Budapest. I haven’t been to the one at Iskola yet, but I’m planning to check it out this week or next week. I’ll let you know if we have more material on flea markets in Budapest. Have a great week!

    Is there a way to find vendors who have old bottles for sale? Especially Warner’s Safe Cure from the 1890s or Warner’s Safe Pills? Also Almanacs and advertising?

      • Michael

        Thanks. I already scour the ebay markets. I’m looking for someone who routinely goes to markets and I want to connect with them to find these items. I have a large collection of Warner patent medicines and he was active in Europe (Frankfurt, Pressburg, Krueslingen, Paris). These are not actual antiques they are only from 1880 -1910 but are starting to turn up. Colorful bottles.

    • Tibor

      Hi Michael, I am not a vendor, but I have 2 old Warner’s Safe Cure bottles Pressburg and Frankfurt, and many others bottles. I am from Slovakia.
