Zelyony Bazaar is usual bazaar where you can buy products, electronics, beauty staff, home staff for cheap price. Nearby you can come across with people who are selling cell phones for really cheap price. If you want you can even sell your cell phone. Also, watch out pickpockets about!

You can find more or less everything. Spices, meat, vegetables and fruits. It's not prohibited to argue the price, but don't expect to reduce the price a... More

It is typical East Bazaar. For tourists from countries other than former Soviet Union it is definitely place to visit. You can buy fresh lamb and beef here. My favorite part of the Bazaar is dried fruits area. It is not advertisement, but ask Muhim there, he has the most tasty. Also you can buy homemade diary products. And you... More

Interesting experience to go through the Green Market. Many different meats, vegetables, fruits, spices, and nuts. It's a local market and continues on to other items for sale. Several you could take with you too for gifts. Maybe not the meat section but good nuts, honey and spices for gifts. Close by too is a really great chocolate store.

If you are squeamish about meat, avoid the back corner! The fruit and veggie displays were in season and beautiful! A clean, pleasant market for wandering.

It is interesting if one wants to taste horse milk or camel milk, but othervise it is quite ordinary market. But it is absolutely very authentic where the locals go shopping,

Somewhat chaotic, 'The Green Bazaar' is a hectic and hectic place to do your food shopping. It is an assault on the senses and is not the height of cleanliness and hygiene but it is worth a visit, nevertheless.
