  • Chaotic open-air market filled with locals buying groceries. Great people watching.
  • You can find almost everything here spices, breads, Juices, fruits, meat, dry fruits , lady vendors in traditional uzbek dresses are delight to watch. Must visit while in Samarkand to experience Uzbek culture.
  • Central Asian bread is for sale in the Siob Bazaar at Samarkand, Uzbekistan.
