    All kinds of souvenirs and the cheapest of them all
    The Vernissage market is the one stop shop for all souvenirs that you may need to buy in Armenia. Its a great place to find different forms of art, jewelry, memorabilia. The vernissage is where you'll find it all and the cheapest of them all. I remember buying a, what seemed to me as a unique piece of jewelry for my wife at Dilijan, and then found the same here at half the price.

    Tourist market
    A fairly large, well organized tourist market. A lot of the stalls sell the same stuff, but there is a good choice of typical Armenian artifacts. I was particularly looking at the double reed woodwind instrument, the Armenian duduk, which produces such melancholic music. Normally it's supposed to be made of apricot wood, but not sure if these ones are (being a tourist market). Another very special item was the huge range of kebab skewers and all the paraphernalia that go with BBQ. If I had more space in my luggage, I would have bought a beautiful set.

a very large open souvenier market in yerevan . a lot of collection for accesories both ladies and men . you will find a wide varierty of men’s wallet , art decoration , potteries and magnets . i just a bit surprised because prices a bit expensive maybe because they know we are tourists 😞. if youre looking for a good souvenier market this is the place just be ready on how you can bargain to lower the prices 😬

There are plenty of flea markets all over the world and most sell the same sort of stuff. This one though does have quite a lot of local craft items and some quite lovely pieces like embroidered table cloths and nice ceramics. There is some tat of course and a range of stalls selling antiques / older items especially jewelry, glassware and silver. Definitely worth a wonder through if you’re looking for something interesting, or even if you’re not. This is not pitched at tourists and clearly frequented by locals too.

This flee market-like came alive during the weekends as I visited twice during my stay.

Weekend. Similar stuff that they are selling in every stalls. Variety of jewelry, clothing, chessboard, and other local items.

Weekday. Still the same people who are selling but much less people.

There are basically three different paths of the same thing you can see in each and every seller. But there’s this art lane market outside the Vernissage Path which is like going to an art museum. I would like to buy some if I had enough space with me.

If you are looking for souvenirs, "Vernissage Market" is the right place to go! Along Aram and Buzand Streets, from the "Republic Square Subway Station" up to the "Statue of Vardan Mamikonyan", the huge open-air market displays an enormous variety of items. Carpets, costumes, jewelry, antiques, musical instruments, dolls, toys, woodworks, magnets, paintings and so on for all pockets. As in all markets around Armenia, a little bargaining is always possible! Enjoy!

Underwhelming tourist trap, the sellers mostly have all the same mass produced souvenirs. Wooden chessboard, wooden casks, clothing and handbags, barbecue spears for grilling. Turkish coffee ebriki. Looks like things you can actually get on eBay and Amazon, such as the ebriki and turkish peppermills. Nothing really antique, even the samovars I was looking at are modern mass produced ones. Cannot really call it a flea market, the Dry Bridge market in T'bilisi Georgia actually had old China teacups and so on, real antiques.

Left after a brief look, but it was all the same stuff. Souvenirs and not antiques.

Nothing special here.

It is great place to check out for local findings and interesting items ,
It needs around 2 hours to go thru all items , make plan for it .
Some items are old and pricy such as silver figures but there are a variety of things to choose.
Price range is from low to high as the products are versatile .
Don’t forget to bargain when you decide to buy

In this market you can see a lot of things, dolls, locket , key chains, flute, shirts, paintings and the most enchanting of them all the chess board and the chess pieces.
One of the reasons why I’m attracted to this country is because of the game chess. If I probably grew up here I wouldn’t feel weird for liking this game since this is a required subject here (from what I heard ), there are lots of chess pieces and chess board here some are wooden and some are metal but both crafted with care, really marvellous.
There are also antique lockets here, some looks like it really come from a historical period so it’s a bit scary it might carry a curse lol.
Paintings are found here too, this one I photographed ,I really liked it seems like the artist has a hopeless romantic soul.
A lot of key chains are here and necklace. I got one of forget me not, it’s amethyst and I kinda lost it because I stopped wearing it. Everytime I wear it I get nightmares, there must be a sad curse there. Maybe the one who previously owned it got forgotten by her lover and became a bitter witch lol, that’s why it was sold to me at bargain price. The pendant was real but the chain is not lol 🤣😂 I’m joking Im just bored and my imagination is running wild again. But maybe the previous owner of the necklace just have a lot of negative energy and it was absorbed by it. Amethyst they say has healing properties, placing it near your heart helps it heal and helps it absorbs the negative energy making it more resistance to pain and heartbreak lol. 🤣😂 the curse may not be real but I think the energy is.
Either way, this one is a nice marketplace. If you get lucky, one of the flute vendors might teach you how to use flute, just don’t be shy to ask 🎼. Wished I could’ve go around longer here and not hurry for the flight. Nice place but I probably won’t come back here anymore, I just wanna preserve the enchanted feeling I felt when I first saw it. I felt like I’m a fairy running around in a different dimension lol this reminds me of the magic market place in the scene of Stardust. 😊♥️
