Visit the best markets in Kathmandu, Nepal
Kathmandu is a true heaven for shoppers, especially for the ones who are ready to explore street markets.

 
In this city, markets are the place where you can buy quality products without wasting all your money such as Monk's robes, soft silks, woolen garments, artifacts, etc. The list is truly endless. Unfortunately, in Kathmandu you are not allowed to buy authentic antiques, but you can purchase copies. Check out the most popular markets in Kathmandu.

    The Art Market, held once a month on a Saturday at The Yellow House in Sanepa, focuses on the contemporary arts and crafts of Nepali designers. Here, you can expect to find one-off paintings, screen-printed t-shirts, contemporary photography, handcrafted jewellery and more.

    There is usually live music and The Yellow House is a popular choice for brunch. The market is especially lively in the couple of months before Christmas as more vendors seem to appear on the grounds.

    Indra Chowk is is one of the ceremonial and market squares on the artery passing through the historic section of Kathmandu. Its temples and bazaar draw streams of pilgrims and shoppers. The square is named after Indra, lord of heaven in Hindu mythology. The intersection of Indrachok, along with Maru, Kathmandu Durbar Square, Makhan, Jana Baha, Asan and Naxal, mark the old India-Tibet trade route that is now a vibrant market street.

    It is considered to be a center for the sale of textiles. Blankets, clothes, shawls, and scarfs made of pashmina are a local treasure, as this fabric is now banned in India. Pashmina is a kind of Nepali cashmere and in Indra Chowk it can be bought at very low prices. Also, sari material can be purchased in this market.

  • Taragaon Organic Agro Market

    Another weekend farmer’s market, this one is convenient for those staying in the Boudha area, which is also known as the Tibetan enclave of Kathmandu. It is held on the grounds of the red-brick, modernist Taragaon Museum, beside the upmarket Hyatt Regency Hotel. The quality of the produce here is particularly good as it is the only market in Kathmandu certified by the District Agriculture Development Office.
