The Bread Woman

This is the "Bread Woman" another little moment from our holiday visit to the central market in Budapest. We rounded a corner and saw a line of serious local shoppers that was at least 20-30 people long. They seemed to be waiting anxiously so we explored ahead to see what folks were lining up for.


Big, huge, round, fresh loaves. Sold whole or quartered as shown here. Obviously of limited quantitiy so there was a certain tension in the line as it was clear that when the bread ran out that was that.

The yeasty smell was fantastic. And the whole scenario lasted about 15 minutes, but you could tell it was a frequent ritual performed in this bustling city market.
