My friend and I visited this market hoping to discover a few quality souvenirs. Everyone was very nice and helpful and no one was aggressively trying to sell you anything, which was nice. However, it was apparent the market is primarily serving the needs of the local people, which was nice to see. Overall, it was not what we expected. However, it is a very big market and you could spend hours exploring!

This market is huge and its energy is enormous. All kinds of food in abundance. Traffic. Noise. Smells. All sorts of people. Young and old. Men and Women. Buddhists, Muslims and Christians. Endless selling and buying. If you want to see and feel what Burmese life is and has been like since a long time you have to go there.

The structure of the market is rather uninspiring. Inside lot's of stalls with fabrics and other consumer goods (on the 1st floor...). Interesting for a couple od minutes. But what is really great are the streets around where fresh produce etc.is being sold. There are a few narrow streets+an indoor market. It's agreat opportunity for a keen photographer! You may buy some fresh fruit or spices, but there are no souvenirs. Also try the fresh juices.
For me it was deffinately worth spending a few hour wandering around!

We had a thoroughly entertaining encounter with an older gentleman (looks to be of Indian origin); who will tell you an interesting story about himself and his life. I won’t share his story, because I think it would be more entertaining to hear it from him; and for you to draw your own conclusions ;)

His name is Mr Slim. You don’t need to find him, he’ll find you. (He found us near the up-riding escalators, and I’m sure we looked a little lost and bewildered ).

If you’re looking to buy some souvenirs, he’ll help. We were looking for some shirts for my Dad and he took us to a store selling shirts. When we couldn’t find what we wanted (this market is really not for tourists) he then politely asked if he could take us to his “other” store. As we had read what the previous reviewer (Gari K) had said, we were prepared, and happily followed him to his store. He started pulling out trinket after trinket, and also pointing out to us his various wares - handicraft that came from the villages. They were “unpolished” and not fancy; and he didn’t appear to have more than one item of any one thing. we therefore felt that they could actually be quite authentic; and not items that were mass produced from some factory. We ended up buying some items from him.

What I love about all my encounters with salespeople in Myanmar is that even if they appear a little shady, they don’t do the hard sell on you.

So if you’re looking for a little adventure in the market; he’s your man!

Ps. If you’re looking for jade and find the Jade market overwhelming, go to ‘Moe gems and jewellery’. Look for my review on this.

My husband and I wanted to get a long gee so our driver said he would take us to the markets where the locals shopped.Hard to get parking but he managaed and took us in.OMG it was overwhelming and huge.Too much to look at in one hit but we knew what we were after and got in and out.Good prices and no haggling as we had our guide.He then took us outside where it was calmer and showed us all the Burmese food stuffs and we had taste testers.Ended up buying some local produce to bring home as it was so unusual and delicious.Had a great time but try not to be overwhelmed like I was.Know what you want and get it or you could be there for 1/2 day.No real touristy items.Just every day living items for locals

Got tuk tuk, and driver waited near clocktower. An easily identifiable meeting point if seperated from companions. Market is indoor. For locals and wholesale buyers. Would certainly recommend going. We found bargains outside (far RH area l think) Plastic woven carry baskets were 2 to 3 dollars Australian. Stall holders are lovely. Little if any English.

We had the same encounter with the Indian trader that "zazu2012" describes below, yet we liked it much more and got some really good stuff, not found anywhere else, and also some stuff one can get elsewhere but of much better quality and lower prices.
it seems that this guy walks around in search for the few tourists who visit, and then "by chance" gets into a conversation with them. cannot blame him, because nobody would ever find his shop hidden on the second floor among and behind wholesale spices and dry goods. We would probably not even venture there thinking it was a structly local wholesale area. Anyway, we are glad he did find us, because in his miniature stall we bought practically all of our souvenirs, and are now deeply regretful we did not buy all he was pushing on us, but too late, because we managed to displace his business card and now know neither his name nor that of his business. He claims to own a jade mine, but even if that is not true, the jade trinkets we got from him were far cheaper and of superior quality than elsewhere. Moreover, we found similar jade bracelets he was selling to be approx. 40x more expensive in China.
As for the "ethics" that was mentioned in the other review of his stall, all the photos he is showing seem to be taken with permission, and as such are legit, much more than tourist photos taken on the Circular train in Yangoon (about that see my review of that attraction).
Anyway, the market is well worth a visit if you are interested in souvenirs not found elsewhere, but if this seller does not find you, try to find him on the second floor maze, and kindly post the name of the business and any electronic contact he may have. Thanks.

It's fantastic market, especially evening on the street. Prices are very less, but clothes are for small people, "one size". We spent hier fantastic time. But be careful of road traffic!

If you are not in a hurry and are curious this is the place to stroll. Many local Burmese manufactured goods, crafts, and so many novel items. Crowded, confusing and fascinating.

Huge Mandalay market area with a multistory building with different floors for garments, lungi cloth, shoes, teddy bears and other goods accessible on foot by stairs or by car as a carpark is adjacent.

I found the most interesting part the sections with vegetables, fruits, spices, flowers and dried fish on 86th street (between road 24 and 31). Wonderful colors, people of Yunnan and Shan origine, villagers selling their produce and city people with cash.
Did not see tourists, but the vendors are well aware of us as they overcharge not just a little bit.
