Morning Market Glory in Tbilisi
nia nikoleishvili
Didube Market is one of the oldest Market in Tbilisi and There’s a lot going on. From locally grown fruits and vegetables and freshly brewed coffee to hand-made crafts, being able to buy items directly from the producer or creator is a lot of fun.

This Georgian lady works in Didube Market for 30 years, selling flowers. She was the only one who was willing to talk about her experience. "Only fools are afraid to talk to the camera" she said

Farmers markets are important spaces of connection in Tbilisi  because customers connect their purchases to an experience and people connect with one another.The stalls  sell vegetables, fruits, pickles and spices while shops on the other side sell Georgian sweets and religious items. The street is loaded and narrow, so throngs of locals and tourists crowd the stalls from as early as 9am. Free tip from us: Chatting with traders will give you a true sense of the city.

Didube is one of the busiest places in Tbilisi, from early in the morning crowds are passing by the traders in the market, as from there microbuses are constantly leaving to different regions of the country

You can also eat and drink at nice small cafes and restaurants, or grab something along the way. Quality of food probably won't be the best but the ambiance will be authentic to its 90's roots with tall, round tables with no chairs nearby. Centre of the city is mainly renovated, but these old markets still carry old, not-so-great-days sense with more than a decade old facades and banners mixed with modern day shawarma spots.

As they say, if you want to know the country, visit its market. Didube market is not the biggest or most famous market in Tbilisi, but it does have its own uniqueness.
