The market is inside and full of every kind of shops. It is better to buy something if you go with locals because they will most likely cheat on you if you, as foreigner visit it alone.

I think Green Bazaar is a must-visit place in Almaty, the goods here are so fresh and interesting. When you go to the dried fruits row, the sellers will give you many kinds of fruits to try. You'll feel so guilty when you're leaving but...More
