    Starokonny Market

    It's like the grungy old-school uncle of European flea markets – there is nothing neat or touristy about Starokonny. It seems like every semi-intact item Odessites throw in the rubbish ends up here. There are heaps of junk – if you patiently shuffle through it you may find some gems. The market sprawls around a large neighbourhood near the long-distance bus station. There are no stalls – all merchandise is laid out on the ground. If something catches your eye, pretend you are barely interested, then start bargaining.

    Privoz Market

    Odesa is home to two of southern Ukraine's largest and most famous markets. This centrally located market is possibly the largest farmers market in the country and a must-visit for rynok (market) lovers. On hot days you may want to breathe through your mouth in the overheated halls. Whatever you buy – always bargain, you'll upset them if you don't.
