The Green Bazaar has everything!

The central market, known as the Green Bazaar and "зеленка" in Russian, located in the center of the city is a must if you are in Almaty for a visit.
For those who are from Stockholm, it looks like a huge Hötorgetshallen with negotiable prices and wild atmosphere. Here you can find everything: traditional eastern spices, mobile phones, gold, sushi rolls, pirate DVDs etc.

The Central Asian market is nothing without dried fruits and nuts.
This is a guy from Tajikistan selling dried fruits. Yesterday he told me what raisins are best for plov. I get really good advice for cooking here.

There is even a sex shop and the entrance fee is 50 tenge ( about 0,4 USD) ;)
