Everyday farmers and gardeners arrive at Piata Amzei with their fresh fruits and vegetables. A non-stop shop for food both local and imported, seasonal and out of season - this is Bucharest's best market thanks to its quality and selection. Prices and clientele vary from posh VIPs buying pesto and pineapple to local grans looking over the leeks and potatoes. Both indoor and outdoor, Amzei is the best place to pick up whatever rare ingredient it is you need to make your lady dinner on your anniversary, or local specialties like wild mushrooms, garlic wreaths or homemade zacusca. Always open.

Amzei market is no more (as of 9.2011).It has been displaced by new buildings. There are some people selling fruit and veg informally from car boots....
The best place to go for free, natural food!
I love Market shopping and this place is great, good choice of produce.
Romanian markets are amazing. The fresh food is just fantastic and the shopkeepers seem disinterested until you walk up then they're just super friendly and helpful. Don't miss.
