Me at the Central Market
OK, I'm giving my husband the "hurry up and take the shot already" face but I'm posting the pic anyways so you can see the inside of the central market. The women behind me working the counters had these cute lace hats or rings on their heads.
There's a little bit of everything underneath these 5 zeppelin hangars but it is mostly every type of food imaginable-fish (you can smell that at least one hangar over!), meat, produce, dairy and candies. All we came back with was some Russian chocolates but you really should go for the experience of being in a huge bustling market with all the local folks.
Directions: near the train and bus stations
Russian souvenirs in Riga
We wandered into several antique stores in the new section of town, some were priced very highly but we found one with old Soviet stuff-Moscow olympic stuff, tea holders, pins, hats, Lenin busts, etc.
I bought a couple of Misha figurines (the Moscow Olympic bear mascot), several new compacts with Russian designs on them, some Soviet pins and an old US advertising tin.
