Pak Shuka(Closed Market) Central Bazaar Apr 10, 2011
One of the most famous and impressive markets in Yerevan is the Pak Shuka(in Armenian) or Closed Market. This market situated on the main artery of Yerevan’ Mashtots Ave (opposite the blue mosque) has a presence of its own a real museum of food. The entrance is an amazing artwork in its own right, a massive semicircular iron structure with intricate detail – a master piece! Passing through this work of art you step inside to discover another world!

You are greeted by vendors of all types asking you to sample their goods – from delicious homemade dried fruits stuffed with nuts (try the stuffed orange or tomatoes for something unique!), paper thin fruit ‘lavash’, ‘sujukh’ (local walnuts threaded on string and dipped in grape molasses! Simply yum!) right through to fresh ‘lavash’ bread and organic fruit and vegetables and stalls selling herbs and spices.
