3. Zhytniy Rynok

16 Verhniy Val Street

This market is one of the oldest in Kyiv, dating back to the times of Kyivan Rus. Since the 15th century, it was the city’s main market, where a big fair was organized two times a year. It is still popular among locals and tourists and the prices there, despite the location and history, are not so high, so some restaurants even purchase products there. You can find a lot of flowers and floral decor there, like sunflowers or wildflowers. Moreover, near the building itself, you can find people who are selling home-grown fruits and vegetables.

One more old bazaar is in the center of Kyiv. Besarabskiy Rynok was built in 1910. It is not just a spot for buying groceries, but also a tourist place that has long been chosen by foreigners and simply guests of the capital. This bazaar is considered one of the most expensive in Kyiv, but sellers are ready to bargain – 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.
