Every year before Christmas, Vörösmarty Square is transformed into a festival of light and colour. More than 100 wooden pavilions are set-up offering handmade porcelain, wooden boxes and toys, jewelry and traditional weavings. The market also has a variety of food and drink specialities such as forralt bor (mulled wine), kürtoskalács (sweet Hungarian pastry), roast chestnuts, kenyérlángos (flat bread baked in a cob oven), as well as smoked meats and sausages. The market attracts both locals and tourists. Various cultural and musical events are held daily.
Our feature photographer, Guillaume Narbonne spent this past week exploring the market. Here’s a collection of his photos.
