Vernissage Market

Northern Avenue 6/2, Yerevan


Vernissage Market is an open air market place located not far from the Republic Square in Yerevan. This is the main location to find all kinds of handmade goods and art pieces symbolizing Armenian history and culture. Traditional dolls, jazzves, wood crafted art and ceramics are all showcased in Vernissage.

The marketplace connects Hanrapetutyan and Khanjyan streets dispersed on 350 meter long Aram and Byuzand streets.

    Very close to Yerevan Central. open market. get lot of old numismatic items. Best for people looking for antiques and silvers. Fit for bargain buyers, normally can ask for 40% less from their price.

    **BOTH PHOTOS THAT I HAVE UPLOADED ARE PICTURES OF VERNISSAGE 2016- PREVIOUS YEARS, TO SHOW YOU AN EXAMPLE OF HOW DATED AND COMPLICATED IT LOOKED TO CHECK WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE NOW CHECK OUT THE ORIGINAL POSTS OR PICTURES POSTED BY OTHER LOCAL GUIDES** Amazing place, In 2017 the market got redesigned with a fresh vintage look, you definitely feel like you're in a western European city. It used to be really old and complicated. Now there is a park and a relatively good place to spend some time relaxing at noon times or shopping some souvenir gifts for relatives and friends who live abroad. If you visit Yerevan, you must visit this popular landmark.

    A nice walk through a local market full of souvenirs but quite expensive. You need be a good negotiator to bargain a good price.

    Рынок работает каждый день с 10:00. В будни торговцев гораздо меньше. За сувенирами сюда, выбор очень большой, есть изделия ручной работы, есть откровенный "китай". Антиквариата практически нет.
