Market Levsha just reopened
Dec 2018 • Friends
In November 2018, we went to Levsha Market on the outskirt of Moscow and found out on the spot that it was temporarily closed. There was an information sign cardboard on the entrance gate saying that the market is closed due to the rent not being paid by sellers." The “Lefty” Fair is temporarily closed for trade due to the untimely granting of the fair’s permission to the fair’s organizer. "

In fact after some research, we also found out later that there was an announcement of the market's closure on the Levsha Market website but in Russian only. Anyway, we learnt t via that same website with the assistance of Google translation that the market resumed its activities from 15 December 2018 onwards. So we went there again on Sunday 16 December 2018. It was very cold winter Sunday, there were some sellers present but very few buyers.
Stalls were still empty along the alley ways. Some shops managed to open despite the way below zero winter.
We realised that prices are much cheaper than those in the Izmailova Market but one should not expect souvenir items at the Levsha. There are plenty of used items, old stuff from the Soviet and even Imperial Russia. I can see that during its peak time in Spring and Summer, the market will surely be full of life. On the minus side, refreshments and restrooms are not easily available at the Market. Will try to go there again next Spring.

Unmissable Excursion

This place is incredible simply for the wealth of material on sale, the complete absence of tourist appeal and a sense of actual Russia with memories going back a hundred years at least. Train from Leningrad station Moscow (Komsomolskaya metro) but be careful to take a slow one which stops at Novopodrezhkovo station, about 30 km away. Levsha is just next to the station. Market only on Saturday and Sunday but return trains are few on Sunday. If you miss it you can take bus 370 to Rechnoy Vokzal metro but it is usually far too crowded. I did the trip with a friend. It is not a family outing.

My favourite part of the whole trip to Moscow

During our one week visit to Moscow we really wanted to visit a flea market since we felt like we could see a more authentic side of Russia and maybe get some cheap souvenirs. We were a bit worried since it was winter and -20 outside that the market wouldn’t run but it was in full swing. Its quite big so I would suggest having 2-3 h to have a look around. Skip Izmaylovo market if you want a real, non-tourist experience of a real russian flea market. Getting there is not hard and you can find good instructions if you just google Market Levsha. Wake up early (it runs from satruday to sunday) and get there at around 8 or 9 in the morning to have enough time and plenty of stuff to see and pick from. Bring cash or take cash out of the ATM in Moscow since you can’t get it there. It really was a highlight and a peak into Russian history and everyday lives of Russians.
