After reading all the reviews myself and my mother were excited to visit. It was not worth the trip. Maybe we went on a bad day but we didn't see anything decent to buy. We both thought the central market was better.

Whether you want to buy local produce or souvenirs, this place seems to have everything. There's a lot of tat but not more than anywhere else in the city. Plus it's a genuinely bustling place and an interesting experience.

I love outdoor markets and wasn't disappointed with this one, lots of interesting colours, smells and locals shopping there. Bought some lovely hand made socks, sheepskin slippers and ceramics cheaper than elsewhere. Great place to just be.

This is a market for visitors who wish to see authentic Sofia rather than tourists per sea. It's a genuine slice of Bulgarian life un-sanitised for wealthy visitors. I would recommend you visit but respect the market - it is not a tourist attraction -...More

If you have to select between Central Market Hall and Women's Market, prefer the second one. You can find traders of local products and feel the beat of local market here.
