  Izmaylovo Market

The Izmaylovo Market is probably Moscow's biggest and most famous market area. You get almost everything here, from all kindss of souvenirs and handicrafts to antiques and carpets.

Prices are said to be cheaper than in the city centre. Of course bargaining is expected. Apart from that Izmaylovo Market has many food stalls with local fast food.

The market is open daily from 10:00 a.m to 5:00 p.m. and weekends seem to be the best time for a visit.

Directions:
The Izmaylovo Market is located northeast of the city centre (metro: Izmaylovskiy Park, blue line). When coming out of the metro station you see five blocks of the Izmaylovo hotel complex which was built for the 1980 Olympics. Just follow the crowds to the market.
