Welcome to Magyar Marketing!


Isten Hozott!  Welcome!

This is our new website and we’re glad you are here!

We are a family owned small business and have been in operation since 1988. My mother, Elizabeth A. Szabo, began Magyar Marketing to help Hungarians in the USA get re-connected to their roots, special products, and one another.

My mom grew up on Buckeye Road in Cleveland OH and had the special privilege of learning Hungarian as her first language and connecting with the deep Hungarian culture that was so prevalent in that area of Cleveland. She moved to Youngstown OH with my father where my father worked in the family business with his dad and brother, Szabo and Sons Funeral Home.

Magyar Marketing began in Youngstown OH but moved to Evansville IN when my mother passed away in 2008. Since that that time, my husband and I and our four children have worked hard to provide Magyar Marketing customers with the personal service my mom provided for 20 years. Even though there were several aspects of the business I helped with through the years, it was quite the learning curve for each of us and we continue to learn more about many aspects of small business ownership in this day and digital age!

We have recently changed our website significantly so please spend a little time getting acquainted with the updated look and exploring the exciting new categories and information we have to share with you. We think you will like our new layout and we hope you will come by often to explore the many resources available for you.

If you are looking for our online store it also has a new and improved look. On this page, look for OUR STORE (near the upper right hand side of this page) and click on the box. It will take you to the website where you can shop. Everyone needs to re-register for this new website but we can now offer some new features with this website and it is more stable then the other, outdated one. Be patient as we are still adding products so if there is something you are looking for but you can’t find, don’t hesitate to give us a call at 1-800-786-7851 or send an email to It is a work in progress and is not completely converted. We are still adding items but the bulk of them are there. If you have comments about the new website we would love to read them.

Our family appreciates your support of our family business. It is our hope that we can learn from one another how to better discover, celebrate, and share our Hungarian heritage!

Magyar Marketing Newsletter #104
April 2015

Boldog Húsvéti Ünnepeket!
Happy Easter!

Here is the link to our Hungarian folk art Easter printables in case you missed them last month! Click on the link, print the papers and color with crayons, markers, or watercolor paints. There are also many other ways to use this folk art as inspiration for other projects you might want to consider like the reverse bleach t shirts we made a couple of years ago!


New Catalog!

We will be closed from April 3rd – April 18th as I will be out of town working on our new catalog. It is a big job and requires a lot of focus and, as many of you know, it is high time for a new one. April will be dedicated to getting the the all the photographs and the copy together as well as the layout and cover design. We look forward to mailing the new Magyar Marketing catalog out in August. If you have ordered from us in the past 5 years you are automatically on the list but if you have recently moved, please send an email to with both your old and new address so we can update our records. And if you know of someone who would like to receive our catalog, feel free to send their information along as well.

Two Special Videos

Operation Mercy — Camp Kilmer
This is a fascinating video about the Hungarian refugees and their accommodations at Camp Kilmer in NJ during the 1956 Hungarian Revolution. Many of the Hungarians we have met through the years came over during the Revolution and my parents helped resettle Hungarian refugees in 1956/7. It was nice to see the care and preparations made for the Hungarians during that difficult time. The video is 25+ minutes long but completely worth it if Camp Kilmer is a part of your family’s history!

Then and Now Photo Collection of Budapest from 1945-2008   



Cleveland Hungarians
The book Cleveland’s Buckeye Road Neighborhood has many wonderful photographs of the Buckeye Road neighborhood and is sure to ignite conversation if you ever lived or visited there. I was excited to recognize several faces in the book. Mark your calendars! June 21, 2015 is the date of the next Buckeye Road Nationality Picnic.

A long time customer recently reminded me about this interesting article on the Hungarians in Cleveland OH. My mom grew up on Buckeye Road and enjoyed the rich Hungarian presence there in the 30’s and the 40’s and continued to be involved until she passed away in 2008. There are many people with Hungarian ancestry still living in and around the greater Cleveland area. Please pass along these resources to those you know might be interested in them. Cleveland is home to a number of Hungarian bakeries and restaurants as well as the Cleveland Hungarian Museum, celebrating their grand re-opening on April 11th. 

Thank you!

We appreciate your support of our family business! It is hard to believe Magyar Marketing will be entering its 27th year! It is our goal to support you as you discover, celebrate, and share your Hungarian heritage with those you love!
