The market os hidden behind the big hotels in front of Partizanskaya metro station. It is small and seems quite abandoned just like the Izmailovo Park but it's still working. It was open on Monday afternoon but I think there are more open stalls on the weekend. There you can find a lot of Matrioskas, fur hats, soviet posters, playing... More

My boyfriend and I went here on the recommendation by Lonely Planet, Trip Advisor & our tour guide and we felt that this place has become an empty shell of its former glory days. We arrived around 4pm and assumed that we arrived too late and missed out on a lot. To make sure we weren't wrong, we went back... More

The market offers large variety of souvenirs as well as handmade Russian products. At this place, I've got a glimpse at lives of the Russian people: what they eat, what they wear, what they cherish in life. And so, not only I got great souvenirs that came along with the fun bargaining experience, I have also brought back with me... More

And not only to buy souvenirs but also you can visit different museums (of bread, of vodka, of Russian toy) and the entrance is very cheap. We've been there several times with our foreign friends and it's very fun to negotiate with sellers, because you can buy matryoshka sometimes 6-8 times cheaper than they say to you first time. And...

If you want to stock up on souvenirs from Moscow, this is the place to go to. Right from blue pottery to the hand crafted pretty Russian dolls.An abundance of stalls showcasing their wares at bargain prices-- the best place in Moscow city to pick up gifts for friends and family. However make sure you are there on Sat or... More

We went here basically to check out shopping as well as feel the Moscow metro. There was a group of 30 ppl travelling with us so no problem. This is a suburban market with good variety n bargain. When ever in Moscow go for it. There was some confusion about the metro station n hardly any one speaks English so... More

The market looks very well worn and unloved. There only seemed to be a handful of shops open and that was at the entrance. Although the place is huge it looks like many of the stalls had not been occupied for years. Come for a look but don't get your hopes up, worth having look the Kremlin next door.

Well worth the trip on the Metro to the market which looks like Disney on steroids as you approach it on the footpath from the Metro. There are stores and stalls throughout the market and also a food area. The prices for souvenirs are so much better than there are in the city. The stall holders are willing to bargain... More

The market has a huge array of souvenirs, antiques & curiosities. There is so much to interest everyone. And yes, if you need souvenirs, this is the place.
