The bazaar is well worth a visit and presents a few photo opportunities. The vendors were very accommodating in allowing photographs of their produce, although most don't want to be in the photos themselves (so ensure that you ask first - a simple gesture with your camera will get your message across). Don't miss the meat market that is inside... More

Located in the very heart of the city, a little less traditional than I thought in terms of authentity, but with a brilliant choice of kazakh food. A good place to eat could be found on the second flour. Don't forget to buy some apples - Almaty is a father of apples!

Don't expect too much from this place and you won't be disappointed - it's not fancy and it's not aimed at tourists but it does give you an authentic marketplace experience, horse entrails and all. It's a great place to barter with shop owners, taste local delicacies and buy anything from clothing to fresh lamb/goat/horse (all fresh but unrefrigerated). As... More

The so called Green Bazar is an amazing place to buy fresh food, vegetables, meat, or anything you want 100% organic. The place is very clean and people is friendly but they only speak russian and kazak. On the surroundings you have some other markets, mostly cheap stuff. To get to the green bazar be patient and beware of the... More

Nicest and the most organized bazaar I have ever seen so far. I can't say things are cheap there (since it is hard for a tourists), but a reasonable price. But it seems most products are from China, except the fruits and vegetables. So, it is not a really big surprise for people from the East. But anyway, if you... More

Nice and cozy Bazaar. However, if you are looking for Oriental style Bazaar "Teheran or Istanbul style", you should not come here. But if you want to buy nuts, fruits, meat, Kazakh traditional drinks and pastry, you want to come to the "Green Bazaar" of Almaty. It is conveniently located right in the centre of the city. And you might... More

I likke Bazaars. And this one is different in many ways to what you would see in the West. Cheeses I've never seen before, huge meat stands with women preparing sausages in front of you. And its spotless clean. People are friendly, and will try to communicate although we do not speak Russian and they do not speak English. A... More

To be honest the quality of food is outstanding if you compare it with regular supermarkets than ramstore or others and it is much cheaper. I do not like the place ( I do not go to bazars if I can avoid it - to much people and to much blabla ) and send my wife to go there -... More
