Prices in Yerevan depend on your location. For example, in the heart of the city all goods will be more expensive than in remote districts, but if you make a market research, you will certainly find a good store with reasonable prices even in the center.
It is better to buy foodstuff at supermarkets than at local markets: first, the prices are equal, and second, the food quality and assortment are better.
However, we advise you to buy some fruit and vegetables at the market, because there is no other place like that to discover exotic treasures of the Armenian “bazaar”. When you are visiting a market, don't be tragic if you decide to buy more goods than you planned: their quality will not fail.
But still, make a research in advance: in the district where you are staying there maybe a store with lower prices than at the market. The reason is simple – many supermarkets receive goods directly from manufacturers (factories or farmers), and at the markets you will buy stuff mainly from resellers.
No matter which choice you will make – a supermarket or a market, you can be sure in the high quality of the Armenian food.
