The heart of the city

Visit the "old" Privoz to see where the food on your table comes from. Not for the squeamish, but all human - and a fair amount of animal - life is there.

The market is well cleaned and organized. It is the best to go inside because the merchandise is better quality inside , out side merchant are nit supervised by anyone. If you are in Odessa you don't want to miss it!

The New Privoz was build beside the old one but for me the old one is the spirit of Odessa with their unique people and language.

As locals say, if you cant buy it in Privoz, then such thing does not exist. And I should agree with locals. This is huge historical market in several buildings and open space market where you really can buy everything. To walk it through takes several hours, and if you wanna taste something, then extra ours are needed. Barging is... More

this is place to visit at least once:) huge market with great choice of fish, meat, cheese and all sorts of things you can imagine.However it is quite dirty, like all markets and can be tiring walking from one side to another. Prices are cheap, choice is excellent.

Privoz Market is vast and easy to get lost in but fabulous, fascinating and friendly, especially if you are a serious shopper. We were looking for vegetarian stuff, the choice was extensive and all delicious.

Caviar too but... More

This place is enormous ... I know I shouldn't be surprised - but it's always slightly shocking when you see for sale animals which have only recently stopped running around !! Some of the ones here looked even fresher than usual !

Make a wish list before visiting and try to find best price after negotiation. You have to meet cute Odessa's babushki and Madams who work behind the counter whole they life. Try to buy homemade food it's the best source of it

A marketplace, where you can buy everything I suppose but the most interesting are spices of different colour, all fresh and aromatic))).
