Fodor's Expert Review Central Market
Local produce, honey, meat, cheese, and other delicacies are sold here. Be sure to try the churchkhela, a sweet, southern Russian snack made of walnut halves on a string covered by flour-thickened grape juice, which is sun-dried. When bargaining for goods, be sure to head to the inner rows to get a better price. The market is connected to the Alexandria Mall, where you can shop for international brands such as Levi's and Guess. Much like everything else in the city, the market (which has been around since the 1930s) is undergoing renovations before the Olympics. Once the construction is finished, Central Market will be housed in a modern five-story building.
