Excellent. You'll find all the souvenirs you need, lots of different food to try, fun stuff in between...The whole place is a sight for itself; it's made out of houses built in different architectual Russian styles, so you feel like you're traveling through centuries. Worth a visit for sure, but note that on Mondays, the majority is closed. You will... More

Went in a Saturday. Dolls, cups, hats, key rings really is all that's there. They have the kebab meat Crikey that is expensive 500rub for chicken and salad! Glad I went as I needed souvenirs but wouldn't go otherwise

The Izmailovsy Market is a wonderland of souveniers and flea market wonders. Everything from old cameras, bric a brac, clothes, buttons and heaps of local bits and pieces. Some of it is rubbish, but it is all worth a look. If you are after souveniers, don't waste your money on bits and pieces in the city. These markets are the... More

Went to this market during the week, half the shops were closed. Didn't enjoy it much. Yes, lots of Russian made dolls, expected more artifacts, may be some crystals. Did not seem to have what I wanted. Old Russian antiques.

At weekends this market has a flea market as well as the usual souvenir market. We spend hours checking out the flea market. Great for collectors of war relics - medals, guns, photos, pieces of uniforms etc. You could spend the best part of a day here. The metro is about a 5 minute walk away. Plenty of local craft... More

There is a huge selection of touristy things ranging in price. Some of the stuff is actually made in Russia, while others are made by Russian artisans. Overall its a great place to grab everything you want to take home for gifts.

It's very nice market. I really enjoyed shopping so much. Especially the matryoshka dolls, winter stuffs (fur hats & scarfs) and soviet era souvenirs. You can play do the bargain game, if you don't wanna pay full price.

The Izmailovsky market is a large market with lots of souvenirs, from matryoshkas, to sovjet coins, to fur hats. Make sure you also take a look at the very back, where there is a flea market and souvenirs are a bit cheaper. The Izmailovsky market is in walking distance from metro station Partizanskaja.

We went to the market on a Monday and there were very few shops open. It was quite empty. I heard it is really fun on weekends. We did buy many things and compared to shops at Arbat street it is much cheaper. This does not mean that izmailovo is very cheap. Considering the quality of products i would say... More

We where there on a Sunday and walked to through all the merchant stands. You can actually buy very good quality things that are sold in souvenir stores, but in a better (much better) Price. There are a lot of antiques and war pins, but our guide told us we where not allowed to take them out of the country.... More
