When Riga Central Market was first opened in 1930 it was the largest and most progressive marketplace in Europe. Through different times “Riga Central Market” has kept its place in the heart of Riga, providing variety, personal service, vivid conversations and heartfelt stories, light hearted haggling and bright colours.
