* Market day

Every Thursday & Saturday is a market day in Nagyatad.
It seems that on Saturdays there's a big market outside with clothes, sheets & all kinds of things.
Inside the market hall is the usual farmer's market where locals sell their handywork. Mostly Veggies from the fields
& eggs from their chicken.
