Osh Bazaar, one of the most interesting bazaars or markets I've been to. My favourite was the section which sells all sorts of dried fruit and nuts. Visit the public toilets there only if you really really have to. At the time, it cost about 3 som (approx. USD0.04) for entry.

This is the place to get dried fruits and nuts from all over Central Asia. The apricots and walnuts are local. There are different kinds of almonds, raisins, pistachios, hazelnuts, etc. They give free samples to help you choose.

This bazaar offers everything and everything is cheap as for European standards. We liked especially the bread shops and the stands for selling spices.

It's, in a way, the kind of market that you expect in many less rich countries. On the other side, however, it was cleaner, more orderly and very interesting. Not particularly unsafe also! You probably need less caution than a shopping area in a major western city.
