The Privoz Market in Odessa Ukraine dates back to 1827! This is a very old market with great history. Part of that history dates back to the 1940s when an Elephant escaped from the nearby zoo and barrelled into the market and turned the produce section into it's own personal buffet.
Moreover this market is claimed to be one of the biggest in the world. In the fall of 2018 I had the pleasure of living in Odessa for a month in my own apartment. I went shopping at this market several times a week. The selection of food was incredible, so were the prices; and the sheer size of the place was at times overwhelming.
Some of the things that stood out was the huge selection of dried seafood caught in the Black Sea which Odessa is located alongside. Georgian bakeries and Turkish imports were equally impressive. A huge selection of pickled food including vendors from South Korea selling home made Kim-Chi was something I bought each week. I recall getting liters of freshly squeezed pomegranate juice for about two dollars.
One huge room the size of a high school gymnasium was just designated to cured meat and cheese, while another two rooms of the same size where designated to fresh meat and poultry. Clothes, electronics, flowers, tools, and much more could all be found at this market. Now lets have a look around during this extensive ten part Travel Pro Series of the Privoz Market in Odessa Ukraine!
