    I so much wanted to buy an oil painting here of mountain Ararat, but in the last minute decided not to buy because quality of painting was questionable. If you are not picky like me, here you can buy cheap paintings and many other handcrafts and souvenirs of Armenia. Very popular place and make sure to bargain because prices are negotiable and a bit high for tourists. They accept dollars by the way.

    Beautiful flea market with lots of things to see!:) I saw all kinds of gemstones, jewelry, handicrafts, soviet-era trinkets, and interesting books. It's a great place to watch people and it's near food shops if ever you're hungry.

    Armenian flea market. Find everything in existence. Good for getting anything you want. I always go here to buy souvenirs for friends back home. The prices vary, and there are multiple booths that sell the same thing. I highly recommend any tourists to try this place out and see what cool things you can find.

    A large outdoor market run by friendly vendors who try hard to anticipate which language you speak and communicate with you. Reasonable prices for beautiful handcrafted wares showcasing Armenian culture. Shaded, close to coffee and lunch spots, near a park, has drinking fountains.

    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.

    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.
