Cheap Russian market
Why locals love it
This big market is popular amongst locals on a tight budget and those with no money at all. There’s a diverse selection of stuff for sale, but personally I come here for the large variety of fresh food.
Why you should visit it
Welcome to 1985 – the name is Kalvarijų Turgus (Cavalry Market) and the game is hustling. At the dodgier end of the spectrum you’ll find gypsies selling contraband cigarettes or some guy selling his own shoes, though there’s legitimate stuff for sale here too. It will definitely put you out of your comfort zone!
To see the real deal, come as early as possible.
