Desertirebis Bazari

Market in Tbilisi

This sprawling conglomeration near the train station is Tbilisi's major central market. A wander round its several areas will reveal probably every food that Georgians eat. There's a relatively handsome modern building at the centre of things, but most traders prefer to remain on the streets and open lots outside, apparently because they don't want to pay the fees for going inside.

The market is named after deserting soldiers who sold their weapons here in the early 1920s.
