Picture Saturday: the Nagycsarnok

Occasionally on Saturdays I go downtown Budapest to the Nagycsarnok (translated at the great hall and better known in our the English speaking community as the Covered Market.  Although there are many 'covered markets' in Budapest).  At the Naygcsarnok shoppers can find many fresh fruits and vegetables, meat, cheese and souvenirs.   Last week I bought 'medve hagyma' translated as bears onion which after a little bit of research I discover is a called wild garlic or ramsons in English.  While I was out shopping I also took a photo from the top of the market hall:
