Named after deserter's from Czar Nicholas's army who legend says sold their gear here before running off to the hills, the central bazaar is a chaotic convolution of raw consumerism. Our tour focuses on the wholesale farmer's market section, which provides fresh produce to many of the city's restaurants and mom and pop shops.

 

After exploring the bazaar, we jump a taxi to sup on a glorious lunch and finish at one of the city's best wine bars for an exclusive tasting of natural wines.

 

Price: $110 per person includes transportation, all food and wine.
