'Gum' Market Yerevan – Local food market

"'Gum' Market" in Yerevan is an old, local food marketplace where I do my shopping and try different types of tea, like the one collected in the mountains!

How do I get to know a country first? Yay, food! 

If you are someone like me you will appreciate Gum Market. It's an old market located close to the city center, near the metro station "Zoravar Andranik." 

Here you will find wide variety of food: from fruits and vegetables to bread and meat. 

Some part of the market is very "touristic" with picture-like fruits and veggies. The sellers are extremely friendly, always trying to demonstrate their knowledge of 3-5 words of any language in the world. Here you can also find wide range of food seasonings which are unique to Armenia.

I visit this place to find new types of tea. There are people who personally collect the leaves from the mountains. I also walk around the meat section, which may be a bit shocking because of the scene and the smell. Try to be open and just appreciate the culture, just like I do each and every week!
