Although there are a few other fruit and vegetable stand around town, this is the place where several are clustered together. Personally, I try to buy as much as possible from the ladies in the main bazaar.

This is a nice market in Leh busy with people coming to buy their vegetables and fruits. Apricot is grown in Leh and many vegetables are brought from neighboring places. Tourist should also experience such markets apart from visiting monuments.

This is a nice walking trail but nothing exclusive. Early mornings bets views!! But you feel the lack of oxygen during walking if you travel during Oct-Feb (Winters)

Most of the fruits and vegetables on sale in the market come from Srinagar or from Jammu. Apricots are the only local produce on sale here. If you like you can try the Ladakhi bread ( Pao) sold at these stores. As for Kashmiri vegetables you can try the haq saag and the mongol.

This Market is a part of Main Leh market. Here You can find a lot of Winter/Trecking/Adventures Clothes & Equipments at cheaper rates. The items are good but some shop you can negotiate. I observe that here two rates are offers One for Local Person & another for Tourist. The Local rates are much cheaper.
