Closed Market or Pak Shuka is on Yerevan’s central Mashtots Avenue, right in front of the Blue Mosque. It was the only market in the city that used to have a fixed roof during Soviet times.
The Yerevan’s Closed Market is certainly one of the most interesting places to exploring the Armenian food and get a glimpse of the culture and hospitality.
Even though the market is expensive compared to most supermarkets and regular food markets in the not-so-central locations, it is a must-visit for Yerevan’s guests. Highly tourist friendly – once you get in to the market you are greeted by different people who offer you to try all different kinds of dry fruits and Armenian sweets.
Another great stuff, my favorite, is the ‘ttu lavash’ or sour-lavash, which is a flat sweet and sour sheet of dried fruit syrup and juices, usually made of plums or cherry sauce.
