It was pretty good.
Feb 2020
I would say this place was similar to other outdoor markets but mostly consisting of souvenirs.
I bought an Apsara small figure display.
I would come here again because it shows many stuff that I can't find in other places.
I saw that there was a review saying not so Russian. So I just wanted to tell everyone behind the name of the Russian Market.
I did some research and the reason was because: The market became popular with foreigners in the 1980s when most of its visitors were Soviets who lived in the area.

Nothing exciting

If you are looking for cheap Chinese stuff this is the place but expect everything terrible quality, we were looking for souvenirs from the place, at least a magnet but they were all awful and only a few local things. I didn’t like it was a waste of time.
Encontrarás aquí solo cosas chinas de terrible calidad, yo buscaba algún souvenir o cosas locales y no encontré, solo unos cuantos imanes para el refri pero horribles, ni siquiera compré uno, y un par de otras cosillas pero baratas, no compré nada, fue una pérdida de tiempo

Not a must

At the market I found the perfect gray tank top made out of a quick dry material. It appears to be knock off Forever 21. Best of all it was a beautiful $4. I also found a checkered scarf that is popular with the locals here in Cambodia. It’s large enough to wear over my shoulders to give me more coverage over my tank tops and it fits in perfectly with my neutral boring color scheme. Naoko also found some goodies including elephant shorts and lanterns.

Not-so-russian ;P

Prior to visiting PP, I read reviews which recommend Russian Market. However when I visited this market on my second day of sightseeing, I felt some disappointment as I couldn't make the major difference between this market and Central Market. I looked at the goods and its prices and they are just slightly more. Personally, I felt 'cheated' as I spend extra dollars to visit this market which was more southern than the ten-minute walk I spend to Central Market. Nonetheless, it was a good experience as it was off my list ;)

Great for gifts
Mar 2020
Our favorite market in Phnom Penh - well stocked in everything. The spice and nut area is perfect for gifts to bring back home. Nice tourist section with a large choice of sculptures (wooden, stone, metal), much better than the central market. You can skip the meat area at the end of a hot day though.

This is one of the craziest, most claustrophobia-inducing places I have ever visited and it was great! Although kind of frightening.
