    Fun and colorful
    The market was a street long. It was packed with vendors and had really good bargains. They do expect you to bargain with them, so don't hesitate. A new market place has been built but is not being used yet. They are in the process of finishing it. It will be moving to a covered building soon. It was fun to walk through. Go when you have time to browse. We didn't have a lot of time unfortunately and only got half way through. Definitely worth a trip if you are going there.

    Fun Market to shop!
    Traditional Bali Market with all sorts of everything, some under cover in the new building… we went there on the Gojak scooter taxi which was a good plan as the traffic is hell. Vendors have good English, some was mindful of not buying too much / buying quality so it doesn’t end up in the landfill. haggle hard and have fun!

    Worth a walk around
    Being housed in a building makes it easier to navigate your way around. Vendors are all selling the same souvenirs but most of the vendors are selling clothing. Haggling for a reasonable price is a necessity. If you don't haggle you are throwing your money away. Many other vendors all selling the same stuff around the area.

    Bali Market for tourists
    This is the place to get your clothes, souvenirs, and other Balinese work of art. You can haggle the price and most of the vendors will work with you. Since this is a massive place and you'll see a lot of the same stuff, definitely roam around first and see what works best for you. One piece of advice Take Cash because no credit cards are accepted.

    Lots of knick knacks and souvenirs
    If you enjoy strolling down streets lines with shops and pop-ups, lots of little lanes branching off with more little shops and hidden cafes, you’ll enjoy spending a few hours here. I did find that after the first 20 mins of ooh-ing and ahh-ing at the paintings, sarongs, batiks, bags, incense sticks and scented oils, jewellery, woven bakers bags and wooden bowls, etc., it got quite repetitive. Regardless, it was an enjoyable experience and the group of us did all manage to pick up a couple of souvenirs and gifts for friends and family back home. I’d recommend going early around 10am when most shops start to open, stay for a couple of hours, then have lunch in the area.

    So much of the same!
    Great place to visit if looking for souvenirs, statues, clothing, woven bags and baskets or a plethora of other Balinese artisan products. There are many stalls, both in the main buildings and adjacent. Merchandise is repetitive and we tended to walk more quickly after the first half hour or so. The are a number of Art Markets in Ubud and I think that I prefer the street type rather than wending my way through a grand building. Still worth visiting and handily located on the Main Street.

    Shopping galore
    This is a fantastic place for shopping at a real bargain. Stores are in thousands and offering from clothes to craft and almost any thing. Indonesian batiks, clothes of all types , toys are in plenty and at an unbelievably low price. If you want to do some heavy shopping (don't want to use the word cheap as it gives a different meaning) this is the PLACE to go! You are welcome (and should) to bargain the price. An Indonesian good quality shirt as low as IRP 50 to 60,000. the same item you would pay something like IRP 150,000 near Kuta. I bought a wooden polished food serving tray (one-single piece) for IRP 150,000 and a load of clothes. I could have bargained further for the tray from the original price of IRP 250,000 but decided not. My only worry I should have bought more items to be given as gifts.

    Delightful afternoon stroll
    Visiting Ubud Traditional Market was an enchanting experience. The vibrant stalls bursting with local crafts, textiles, and fresh produce immersed me in Balinese culture. The friendly vendors and bustling atmosphere added to the charm. Exploring the market was a delightful journey into the heart of Ubud's rich traditions.

As the sun goes down, the shopping comes to life in the bustling market in Ubud, Bali. I visited at twilight and found lots of variety, with arts and craft, textiles and trinkets, at the forefront. Some of the space is a bit cosy. Enthusiastic sellers but at no time did I feel it was high pressure. An enjoyable street style market (see my Coffee Chill TV YouTube Vlog) and well worth checking out.

The market is much bigger, than I initially thought so we actually ended up taking it in two turns... It was way too hot anyway.
You kind of have the same stuff at every stall, but I suggest to go around first, find out about the prices in general, than go back to a stall that has most of the things you are actually looking at buying and make a good deal for all items. This definitely worked good for us and we ended up paying nothing like the prices we got separately from different sellers.

Great place for Balinese souvenirs. Would say that the market probably has most of the traditional stuff you wld wna bring back from Bali (e.g. wooden bowls, rattan bags, paintings, clothes, ornaments etc). 100% haggle for everything you buy, the prices they first quote are heavily inflated (likely partly because of the lack of sales during the pandemic), so they’re quite eager to make a sale and wld rather sell u stuff at cheap prices rather than have no sales at all.

Oh and just a note - our driver told us that Ubud Art Market was closed for renovation but it seems that all the stalls simply setup shop again next door along a street of some sort.

While in Bali, we also went to the famous Ubud Art Market and bought pretty handbags and windchime from there. The vibrant market retails everything from clothes to jewellery to bags, souvenirs, footwear, gifting options and much more. Be sure to bargain a lot! We also got a glimpse of the Royal Palace from outside but didn’t go inside.

It is a market with emphasis in art. However it is the same type of art that you are going to see all over Ubud. This time I found the paintings vastly uninteresting.

As always you have to haggle like hell as it is only going to be of interest to tourists.

Glad that we stopped here. Bought a beautiful Balinese painting. Just be very mindful of what your willing to pay. As the locals will trick you. They wanted 900,000 and ended up selling for 300,000. Just be confident when talking to them.

Situated right in the heart of Ubud is this vibrant market, you can't miss it, although I wouldn't call it a large market. They sell fruit, bags, sarongs, clothes, water and always the many traditional souvenirs. It is pretty much open from 9am to 6pm - although I found people still trying to sell things well after 6.30pm.

I thought there would be heaps more fresh fruit stands, instead of the endless clothing stalls.

Just be careful, they will always try and over charge you - they do this in a very friendly way.

been here quite several times,sometimes shopping here,sometimes just passing by.when i revisited Ubud in June this year.i passed by it again.and found that this market already fenced off,only some part of it still opened(that part connected to jl dewi sita)but the main part which faced to jl raya ubud no more already,some vendors selling their stuffs beside the road at jl raya ubud.also the morning food market vanished.heard that the authorities want to build a new modern one to replace the old one.but,i prefer open air traditional arts market more than air conditioned closed buiding market.luckily,still part of it(that one close to jl dewi sita) remained open air,you can haggling here,though sometimes it is a bit hard to get a good price,it depaends on what you want,if the stuffs attracted your eyes,try to bargain,and if the price is affordable,then just buy it,cuz you may not find it in other places .that time i didnt buy anything,cuz already had some souvenirs.if next time come here again,i will stop and see what worth buying.haggling at the traditional arts market is truly an unique ubud experience. of course,i meant that open air part of the traditional arts market.
