For fruits, vegetables and other ingredients. To meet, chat, bargain or browse for hours. In search of real treasures along the lines of colours, fragrances, sounds and fresh air, finding false gems. We have collected a bunch of farmers’ markets around Lake Balaton, where you can bump into special stalls during your thoroughly enjoyable shopping experience.
Tihany PIAC Placc
The PIAC placc marketplace by the Tihany ferry promises antiques, meat, cheese and spice vendors, but above all a modest bazaar vibe. It has a playground, much to the joy of kids bored by shopping, and a HelloWood installation that makes the airy marketplace even friendlier. This is not the place to find the largest number of traditional small-scale producers, but you will not be disappointed by the range of available ingredients. Arrive hungry, so you can eat as much of the local speciality (apple strudel) as possible.
8283, Káptalantóti, Liliomkert
The rebel, the hospitable, the Garden of Eden. All of these apply, although not necessarily in this order. It’s all clear to anyone, who spends a few days here, and the majority of the crowd here are returning market-goers. The Liliomkert in Káptalantóti is a popular haven for people permanently or temporarily escaping the buzz of the capital finding refuge in Káli-medence. The setting for the community factor is an abundance of wines, cheeses, jams, artisanal goods and bio-elixirs.
