It is easy to understand why this two-storey market, also known as Zelionyj Bazaar, is a local favourite and a must-stop visit for tourists. While it is not the only market in Almaty, it is the most well-known, selling the broadest range of products in a friendly, welcoming atmosphere you can enjoy haggling with the locals.

Built-in 1875 as a stopping point for travelling merchants, you will now find rows of vendors selling fruit, spices, meat as well as textiles and furniture. While wandering amongst the locals doing their daily shop, you will have many opportunities to taste the foods on offer. Those who must have a souvenir, lining the perimeter are stalls selling embroidered Kazakh hats, jackets and intricately woven slippers for you to purchase.

Relax at one of the many food stalls serving tea and noodles while watching the comings and goings around you, and learning about everyday life in Kazakhstan.
