This bazaar is definitely a MUST go. You can see a wonderful and tempting array of fruits, nuts, spices, preserved vegetables, cheeses, caviar and much more neatly and beautifully arranged you will not leave buying nothing. Best part is you can get to taste yummy samples! And if you find yourself running out of currency after making all the purchases... More

The Zelzony Bazaar is also known as the Green Bazaar. I visited several bazaars while visiting the Five Stans and this was one of my two favorites. There is a large selection of fruits, vegetables, dried fruits and nuts, food products etc. The vendors were especially nice and were quick to offer samples and educate you on their offerings.

We loved visiting this spectacular and expansive food market. Not very hygienic-looking, at least by Western standards, but a terrific variety of local meat and dairy products as well as some ethnic foods (look for the korean section). There's also an incredible variety of local honeys.

It is bazaar-market for food that looks like in 80 is. You must go there just to see all local products: meat, horse meat, sausages, meat products all home made, milk products, spices, unusual alcohol drinks with spices,fruits and vegetables. The prices are good, sometimes you can bargain. Also you can try some of local speciality.
