Zelyony Bazaar (aka the Green Market) is the main market in Almaty. Mountains of fresh fruit and vegetables lovingly arranged in pyramids of different colour - try the white apricots if you are there in early summer, they are delicious; dried fruits and nuts in abundence; caviar; Korean salads of every combination of vegetable you can think of; kumys (fermented mare's milk) and shubat (fermented camel milk); salty white balls of cheeses -Safeway was never like this.
There are several cheap eating places here.
The other areas of the market are a bit depressing, jammed as they are with cheap and shoddy goods and anxious people, both buyers looking for a bargain and sellers looking for a sale.
