3. Zhytniy Rynok

Via Verhniy Val 16

This market is one of the oldest in Kiev, dating back to the times of Kyivan Rus. From the 15th century it was the main market of the city, where a large fair was organized twice a year. It is still popular with locals and tourists and the prices there, despite the location and history, are not that high, so some restaurants even buy products there. You can find many flowers and floral decorations there, such as sunflowers or wildflowers. Also, near the building itself, you can find people selling home-grown fruit and vegetables.

Another old bazaar is located in the center of Kiev. Besarabskiy Rynok was built in 1910. It is not only a place for shopping, but also a tourist spot that has long been chosen by foreigners and simple guests of the capital. This bazaar is considered to be one of the most expensive in Kiev, but sellers are quick to haggle: a market is a market, after all. There are all kinds of products here: fruits, vegetables, herbs, nuts, dried fruits, spices, milk, fresh fish and meat products and various pickles.
