As you stroll through the city, you will be surprised at the number of pedestrian-only streets, making shopping in Pécs a pleasurable activity. Many of the stores are standard shops found in Budapest or any other large city, for that matter. For a more exotic shopping experience, visit the Pécsi Vásár (Pécs Flea Market). At this crowded, bustling, open-air market you can find everything from antique china and silver to Turkish T-shirts and Chinese baby booties. The market is open Friday, Saturday and Sunday where the Sunday is the first Sunday of the month. Take a special bus, marked VÁSÁRTÉR, which departs from the Konsum downtown shopping center. You need two standard city bus tickets for this bus; these are available at newsstands and kiosks or ask the bus driver, but the prices are higher. You can also take the no. 3 bus from the Konsum (only one ticket required), but you'll have to walk some distance from the stop to the entrance of the flea market.
