Danilovsky - the Oldest Moscow Market

People engaged in the development of the Danilovsky market call it a “European market”. You can even call it a fashionable market, and due to this feature, Danilovsky will be of interest to tourists: it not only has neat and clean shopping arcades, but also is a pleasant place for communication and even for cultural events.

In addition, the market is considered to be the oldest in Moscow, it is adjacent to the Danilov Monastery and may well become an additional excursion point. It would be more accurate to call not the modern market, but the shopping arcades on the square near the Danilov Monastery the oldest constructions.



The shopping arcades have existed on this place for many centuries - at least since XIV century. The official collective farm market working on the principle of full cost accounting was organized here in 1963. Four years before an unexpected guest visited the market – it was the American President Richard Nixon who came to the famous American exhibition held at the Sokolniki Park.

Nixon liked the market very much, and he mentioned this in his article about the visit to Russia (which was translated by Nikolai Morozov): “I woke up early and went to the Danilovsky market with one of my employees and an interpreter. This is a charming place, mostly in the open air, with hundreds of small trading outlets selling fruits and vegetables, flowers and herbs, in fact everything - from plastic toys to fresh milk.”



In 1970s, the market was covered with a roof: a rounded building with a dome was constructed for the market, we can see it today. The building was renovated and reconstructed in late 2000s.

The updated Danilovsky market is more like a hypermarket with private sellers than a traditional bazaar. It can boast of perfect navigation and pleasant cleanliness, all kinds of products; the consultants are available, everything can be tasted.



There is a large food court with cuisines of different countries of the world; and in the future there will be a culinary area and a kitchen area where consumers will be able to cook the purchased products independently or with the help of professional cooks.  The market has an online store for its laziest customers.

The market is open from 8:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. daily.
