No matter what you are looking to buy, you’ll definitely find it at the open or closed market of Station Square. It’s located on a huge area in the central part of Tbilisi, next to the railway station, where the two lines of the metropolitan cross each other. Here it’s possible to find everything. Just everything: clothes, shoes, bags, accessories, home items, toys, books, perfumes, mobile phones, thousands of small articles and even food.
In fact there are different markets and quite small shopping centers in the surrounding area. Those different markets are separated from each other. Some of them are underground, others are covered. The market is divided in different sections, so you have to know quite well where to find exactly what you are looking for, otherwise it’ll be an almost impossible task. I can’t say if the quality of the goods for sale is generally high, but I can definitely say that the Station Square Market is always crowded, messy and full of life.
The merchants who do not have their own counters inside the markets spend their working days outside, selling a million kinds of things and products.
In this neighbourhood there are also second-hand markets full of used (and sometimes new) goods. Plus, there is a separate market for gold and silver accessories.
I know, this place is a real mess, but it represents very clearly the spirit of Georgians.
