Art Market Reviews

The Art Market seems endless. There are wood carvings, leather work, hand knit sweaters, embroidered pieces of clothes and decoration, paintings, lithographs, jewelry.....etc. Much of what you see is.... more »
They have MANY souvenir vendors and artist! Prices were higher than purchasing items in the street. Always negotiate! The vendors are very eager to sale items. You will be approached by 99% of the venders, so that was a little uncomfortable but understandable. It’s definitely worth a visit!
This market is THE place to go to get all of your souvenirs purchased in one go! There are so many vendors and items for you to choose from, and are priced astonishingly well! The art though, the ART was beautiful! We started out by looking at all of the art shops (they go around the perimeter) and there were all different styles, genres, and concepts. Our family loved it! The art is very well priced, however you may want to make sure you bring enough money to budget for it (if you're from the us and can't use an atm, particularly). The most expensive, huge, canvas pieces we saw went for about $180. And a lot of art was generally around $60-$100. Far better prices then you'd find back home. Also, a lot of the artists are there too... you can request something custom and come back to pick it up! The ONLY caveat is how aggressive the vendors can be. It can get overwhelming, fast. I understand why (an extensive amount of competition) but 200+ vendors with the same intensity can be a bit draining.
