The site has still has prices in Lats (LVL), pages are not updated since long long time ago, but in any case it stays as it is as a nice souvenir to old times.
The Central Market is located two minutes walk from the Old Town and one minute walk from the Central Bus Station.
The buildings of the market were constructed from roofs of zeppelin hangars ( ) that were broght to Riga from Germany.
There is a Dedicated hangar only for meet, another one for vegetables, cheese, and fish.
Personally I like markets. This is where a visitor can feel the atmosphere and see the people that buy and sell and this market is for sure a place where one can feel the old times atmosphere that is still alive.
