Found this market much better than the other bigger market. Prices here are cheaper, has very similar produce for sale, but lacks a good food court

It was great to see a local market thanks to TripAdvisor reviews. Fascinating to see so many different types of pickles! We enjoyed the place a lot but I don’t seek glamorous tourist spots. Glad to have had a chance to peek into ordinary life.

here the locals make shopping of fruits, vegetables and... the prices are much cheaper than in the great market. if you want to buy paprika or fresh vegetable this is the place. otherwise there is not much to do here.

It's really rather a market than a mall, so I don't think you'd find there a laundry. But there is one nearby (at Bessenyei str. 16.) called Bubbles, check out their webpage for more information.
