Vernissage Marketplace In Yerevan, Armenia

Back in June I wrote about my art analysis in Armenia and how amazing one of the pictures was that I saw at a marketplace, but I couldn’t remember the name of it, until now.

The Vernissage Marketplace is Yerevan is an amazing outdoor venue that holds a giant flea market every Saturday that runs from Republic Square all the way to Khanjian Street. (see map below)

Nowadays, you can find almost anything in this weekend open market. In just a few blocks, you will see, besides art, carpets, old collections of coins and medallions, jewelry, music, books, carved wood, lace, embroidery, ceramics, posters, food, tools, parts for electronics and even pets. It is open year round, though only on the weekends, except for a rump vernissage held daily at the end of the usual Vernissage venue where it meets Khanjian Street.
