Why locals love it

This is it the center of trade within Riga for the average person. You will mostly see people visiting to do their weekly shopping as well as those in search of local delicacies.

Why you should visit it

The iconic Central Market was once one of the biggest and most modern markets in the world. Today it shelters a large and vibrant farmer’s market. Always fresh, natural and with an eco touch. You’ll recognize the huge Zeppelin hangars from a distance.

Special tip

Bring a shopping bag!

I absolutely recommend this market to experience the smell, the locals, the snacks.

Amazing range of food as well as an experience. A great chance to practise your Latvian. You must try the donuts!

I have read that the Central Market is the place to go to find odd clothing and souvenirs, such as t-shirts with 'Cover me in hot sauce and feed me to the lesbians'. The info I've read is a bit outdated though, so my question is: Can such items still be found there?
