The latest 'it' place to sample some great local food in Budapest isn't a restaurant, instead it's the Farmer's Market hosted by Szimpla Kert every Sunday. Szimpla is also one of the city's most iconic ruin pubs and now they have a new mission: to help connect the city crowd with local farmers. The market opened in June and it quickly became a local favorite. It's a great source of healthy, farm-fresh, home-grown products and it's the perfect place to sample some delicious homemade food in a cool and friendly atmosphere. Wonder through the ruin pub's courtyard and you'll soon be munching on some tasty bites. Country-style pastries, fresh goat cheese, homemade syrups, honey, sausages, salamis, seasonal fruits and vegetables are all part of the offering. In addition you'll find plenty of kid's programs and live music.
The farmer's market is open every Sunday from 9 am to 2 pm. If you are passionate about markets, healthy eating and local produce and would like to support local farmers be sure to include the Szimpla Kert Farmer's Market on your Budapest itinerary. Here is a taste of country living mixed with city life the Szimpla way:
