This should be considered as a memorabilia from the Soviet times, when only women would do the shopping. Today, also men do shopping in the market. Also, from another angle the name carries the germ of the gender equalities movement in the country. A "pazar"...More

After reading all the reviews myself and my mother were excited to visit. It was not worth the trip. Maybe we went on a bad day but we didn't see anything decent to buy. We both thought the central market was better.

Whether you want to buy local produce or souvenirs, this place seems to have everything. There's a lot of tat but not more than anywhere else in the city. Plus it's a genuinely bustling place and an interesting experience.

I love outdoor markets and wasn't disappointed with this one, lots of interesting colours, smells and locals shopping there. Bought some lovely hand made socks, sheepskin slippers and ceramics cheaper than elsewhere. Great place to just be.
