Vernissage: French for 'vanishing'. It is Yerevan's famous weekend market that showcases the handiwork of it's various artisans from bronzework to leather, silver, ceramic and woodwork; as well as paintings, souvenirs, trinkets, and curious used items such as medals, banknotes, coins.

Its a nice market to buy souvenirs to take back home. There's a variety of Armenian artifacts, chess boards, knifes, etc to choose from.

This flee market-like came alive during the weekends as I visited twice during my stay.

Weekend. Similar stuff that they are selling in every stalls. Variety of jewelry, clothing, chessboard, and other local items.

Weekday. Still the same people who are selling but much less people.

There are basically three different paths of the same thing you can see in each and every seller. But there’s this art lane market outside the Vernissage Path which is like going to an art museum. I would like to buy some if I had enough space with me.

Must visit market, everyone told me it is the cheapest place to buy souvenirs. The vendors apparently set up their goods when they want, I went at 6 PM and most of them had already left, another day at around 11 AM many of them were not there yet. The best time is probably around 12 to 4 PM, at least on weekdays. It is necessary to bargain, the prices make no sense sometimes. For my friend they said 30 k for one item and then for the exact same thing another seller said 2 k. Perhaps good to take someone who speaks Armenian with you and let him or her do the bargaining.

There are plenty of flea markets all over the world and most sell the same sort of stuff. This one though does have quite a lot of local craft items and some quite lovely pieces like embroidered table cloths and nice ceramics. There is some tat of course and a range of stalls selling antiques / older items especially jewelry, glassware and silver. Definitely worth a wonder through if you’re looking for something interesting, or even if you’re not. This is not pitched at tourists and clearly frequented by locals too.

Definitely worth a visit if you’re in town - we spent a couple hours browsing and speaking to vendors. The carpets are so beautiful (we bought two) and the hand carved wooden pieces are gorgeous as well - we loved the chess sets but didn’t have room! The pottery was another one of our favorites - the coffee mugs finished in milk and honey to give them a golden brown color were particularly lovey.

If you are looking for a place to buy armenian handmade souvenirs, this is your place. It’s also a short walk from the famous cathedral and a number of shopping malls.

An open air market filled with trinkets and home décor. Plenty of duplicates in stall after stall, so a little talking down in price is OK. It is mostly open even in the winter. There are a few places to get some street food or sit and rest. I wouldn't go out of my way for the experience, but if you are taking a walk around town or visiting the History Museum, it is a decent add on for about and hour.

If you are looking for souvenirs, "Vernissage Market" is the right place to go! Along Aram and Buzand Streets, from the "Republic Square Subway Station" up to the "Statue of Vardan Mamikonyan", the huge open-air market displays an enormous variety of items. Carpets, costumes, jewelry, antiques, musical instruments, dolls, toys, woodworks, magnets, paintings and so on for all pockets. As in all markets around Armenia, a little bargaining is always possible! Enjoy!
