    Fun and colorful
    The market was a street long. It was packed with vendors and had really good bargains. They do expect you to bargain with them, so don't hesitate. A new market place has been built but is not being used yet. They are in the process of finishing it. It will be moving to a covered building soon. It was fun to walk through. Go when you have time to browse. We didn't have a lot of time unfortunately and only got half way through. Definitely worth a trip if you are going there.

    Fun Market to shop!
    Traditional Bali Market with all sorts of everything, some under cover in the new building… we went there on the Gojak scooter taxi which was a good plan as the traffic is hell. Vendors have good English, some was mindful of not buying too much / buying quality so it doesn’t end up in the landfill. haggle hard and have fun!

    Worth a walk around
    Being housed in a building makes it easier to navigate your way around. Vendors are all selling the same souvenirs but most of the vendors are selling clothing. Haggling for a reasonable price is a necessity. If you don't haggle you are throwing your money away. Many other vendors all selling the same stuff around the area.

    Bali Market for tourists
    This is the place to get your clothes, souvenirs, and other Balinese work of art. You can haggle the price and most of the vendors will work with you. Since this is a massive place and you'll see a lot of the same stuff, definitely roam around first and see what works best for you. One piece of advice Take Cash because no credit cards are accepted.

    Lots of knick knacks and souvenirs
    If you enjoy strolling down streets lines with shops and pop-ups, lots of little lanes branching off with more little shops and hidden cafes, you’ll enjoy spending a few hours here. I did find that after the first 20 mins of ooh-ing and ahh-ing at the paintings, sarongs, batiks, bags, incense sticks and scented oils, jewellery, woven bakers bags and wooden bowls, etc., it got quite repetitive. Regardless, it was an enjoyable experience and the group of us did all manage to pick up a couple of souvenirs and gifts for friends and family back home. I’d recommend going early around 10am when most shops start to open, stay for a couple of hours, then have lunch in the area.

    So much of the same!
    Great place to visit if looking for souvenirs, statues, clothing, woven bags and baskets or a plethora of other Balinese artisan products. There are many stalls, both in the main buildings and adjacent. Merchandise is repetitive and we tended to walk more quickly after the first half hour or so. The are a number of Art Markets in Ubud and I think that I prefer the street type rather than wending my way through a grand building. Still worth visiting and handily located on the Main Street.

    Shopping galore
    This is a fantastic place for shopping at a real bargain. Stores are in thousands and offering from clothes to craft and almost any thing. Indonesian batiks, clothes of all types , toys are in plenty and at an unbelievably low price. If you want to do some heavy shopping (don't want to use the word cheap as it gives a different meaning) this is the PLACE to go! You are welcome (and should) to bargain the price. An Indonesian good quality shirt as low as IRP 50 to 60,000. the same item you would pay something like IRP 150,000 near Kuta. I bought a wooden polished food serving tray (one-single piece) for IRP 150,000 and a load of clothes. I could have bargained further for the tray from the original price of IRP 250,000 but decided not. My only worry I should have bought more items to be given as gifts.

    Delightful afternoon stroll
    Visiting Ubud Traditional Market was an enchanting experience. The vibrant stalls bursting with local crafts, textiles, and fresh produce immersed me in Balinese culture. The friendly vendors and bustling atmosphere added to the charm. Exploring the market was a delightful journey into the heart of Ubud's rich traditions.

It was the first time for me to visit this market after so much change. I have been to old market years ago. The market used to be more lively having many local stalls. There were warung and kaki lima (street push cart food seller) selling cheap local food. It was full of vive because not only tourists, but also locals were hanging around and buying their necessities.
I appreciate cleaner area, but definately it lost shine. Now it became the tourist trap.
In fact, the entire Ubud area became more touristic. It could be better for local tourism, but I miss old Ubud where I used to carry a small torch light for walking on the street in the night. (Quiet and less lighting!)

this market is clearly catered to poach from tourists. for the same exact piece of souvenir, the price can vary from 50K to 150K IDR when the market price one should pay is probably 20K to begin with, at most.

bargain well, or look elsewhere

Really just another market selling the same goods you see all over, nice to walk through but would be nicer if you could actually stop and look without the sellers telling you they have T-shirts in big size and sarong for lady. Actually think I would have bought more if was left to browse but did see some nice items so good way to kill an hour or two.

You can find a lot of unique gifts from the ubud art market. Make sure you bargain hard though. It's a good strategy to start low.

Many stores had identical pieces, you have to find out the prices at different stalls for the same product if you want the cheapest rate. And you have to try bargaining because everything is overpriced to trap foreign tourists.

Nice to visit but there isn't a variety of different things. It's not quite what I expected but it was nice to walk around.

As usual, you must haggle with the vendors in this type of market that caters to 99% tourists, looking to buy souvenirs of their holiday vacation. The usual Balinese fare here: shirts, wood carvings, cheap jewelry, risqué items, toys, paintings, shoes, sarangi, ex cetera…spend an hour traipsing through.

Many stalls selling various varieties of decorative items, clothing, household items etc. It was very humid & stuffy inside. To get a good deal, one has to bargain & pay only when the price is what you are willing to pay. You get a better offer price if you can converse in Bahasa. The quality of the merchandise varies so it will be advisable to inspect before paying.

This is a personal preference not to have every stall holder hassling you; i just don't feel comfortable pausing to look with continually having items sold to you; this is because you are constantly being hassled by people trying to sell you goods.
