The Great Market Hall in Budapest is the largest indoor market in the city and an architectural monument in itself. The market is closed on Sundays but other days it opens early (sometimes as early as 6:00 am, and closes fairly early as well- get there before 4:00 pm to be safe). The main ground floor features lots of food products such as fresh fruits and vegetables, as well as spices such as the famous Hungarian paprika (which makes a great gift to take back for the person doing your house-sitting!). Downstairs there is something of a supermarket, as well as vendors of fresh fish and game. The top level is where you'll find handicrafts and other locally-produced crafts, as well as typical souvenirs.
