The Green Bazaar is one of the best places in Almaty to find traditional Kazakh food. You can watch butchers chopping up chunks of horse meat and experienced workers hand-stuffing spicy Kazakh sausages. Fruits, salads, cheeses, meats and traditional mixed dishes line the aisles of the large indoor section. And the best part is that sampling is encouraged. So feel free to taste before you buy. The large bazaar includes indoor and outdoor sections and features clothing, shoes, appliances and other everyday items in addition to its food offerings.
The vendors are friendly and the whole market has a welcoming vibe. It’s a great place to spend some time getting a real cultural taste of Kazakhstan
