About
The Old Market Hall is a historical building dating from 1910, which serves as an urban meeting point. The venue offers food markets and cultural events. The food markets take place every Saturday, from 10:00 am till 3:00 pm. The sellers are carefully selected, being mostly producers and farmers offering their own products ranging from fresh seasonal vegetables and fruits, dairy and meat products to bakery goods and sweets. However, there are also few small entrepreneurs who offer quality food products from abroad, such as olive oil, ground coffee, tea etc. The food markets are often accompanied by various types of flea markets and other special activities. Situated in the building are also a grocery shop, a cooking school, a soda water manufacture and two coffeehouses. One of them has a children's playground, the other one employs homeless people.

The market is relatively small compared to markets in larger cities,but still worth a visit. You enjoy meeting the locals, buying local goods, and eating local food. There are tables where you sit and enjoy eating and people-watching.

The Old Market Hall is a nice place to pop in to, to get out of the cold and enjoy one of the many food trucks, or browse the many items for sale on the second level. I think everyone will enjoy a visit here to soak in the cool vibes and the warmth of the building.

Went there on a Saturday morning as recommended by our local host and we enjoyed it.

Lots of stalls selling food, drinks, sweets and at affordable prices. Place is very family and pet friendly, clean bathrooms too.

This is a cool old building with quite a few spaces for vendors, and hosts a number of sales throughout the year. Very near Old Town, and often worth a visit if anything is happening. In the front of the building, street food festivals happen fairly often.

Old Market Hall ( Stará Tržnica) is a beautiful and evocative building that is one of the landmark buildings in this most beautiful of little cities.
This was the first covered market in Bratislava, building was completed by 1910 with architect František Nechyba clearly designing this building to fit in seamlessly with the grand architecture that abounds throughout this city.
This building makes for some amazing photographic opportunities, the beautiful little Lion Fountain out front looks fantastic.
The actual market was run down during the 1980's but today has regenerated itself with superb market stalls each Saturday showcasing local produce and souvenirs ,some really nice cafes and bars, it is in fact a really popular spot to just chill out and enjoy the local cuisine and drinks.
Very easy to locate on SNP Namesti, a beautiful building, most definitely well worth seeking out if your in the area.

Stará tržnica is a grand building which was completed in 1910, it was the first covered market in Bratislava and was designed by František Nechyba. On the site once stood a 15th century bastion which was part of the city’s medieval fortifications. At the front of the building is the Lion Fountain which was assembled from parts of an older fountain and reconstructed in 1937. Stará tržnica is close to the Old Town and is another of the many sights to be seen in Bratislava.
