Thimphu’s Market

This unique market in Thimphu is a great place to view a slice of contemporary Bhutanese life. It’s a delight for photographers and those who love to people watch.

The market attracts farmers from all over the district and beyond. Shiny red chillies, purple banana flowers, freshly shelled peas, edible ferns, rice, mushrooms, garlic and tropical fruit compete for colour in the fresh produce section while across the cantilever bridge lies the tourist market selling temple horns, prayer flags and wheels, ceremonial masks, wind chimes and textiles.
