This looks like a great market in the spring and summer. However, in the winter it is a bit sparse. I enjoyed walking around and I got a few souvenirs still.

Best way to spend a weekend and see more of Yerevan. You get to see Art, local goods, pets, and shopping for speciality items. Recommend a visit. Well worth your time.

The monument is done by Kochar .... More
