The Osh Bazaar is one of the few places in Bishkek where you can experience the flair of an Asian bazaar. The Osh Bazaar is the largest market in Bishkek. It is located very close to the city centre, in the western part of the city. You can find everything you want: food, homemade, clothes, shoes, tourist equipment, books, tools, etc. The classic bazaar rows of Osh are full of fresh fruits and vegetables, reddish flat bread, snow-white kurut and much more. In the market’s meat hall, you can find fresh beef and pork common to Europeans as well as traditional Kyrgyz horse, mutton and even yak meat, and special Kyrgyz delicacies like chuchuk.

Traditional Kyrgyz felt products, national clothing and various utensils, T-shirts with prints dedicated to Kyrgyzstan, national musical instruments and various rare things, leftovers from the Soviet era, are sold here.
