Vernissage Flea Market | Վերնիսաժ13
Why locals love it
Vernissage is a big open air market (I would say gallery) which offers traditional Armenian jewelry, souvenirs, handicrafts and many other items. Here one can get bags, t-shirts, hats with typical Armenian pattern. Even we Armenians often shop here.
Why you should visit it
Visiting Vernissage is a full day free excursion which brings you one step closer to Armenian culture and traditions. Even if you leave the place with empty hands (which is hardly possible:) at least you will get a good handle on the country's culture.
Weekend is the best time to visit Vernissage. Always bargain, as a higher price might be told to foreigners.
