Attraction

Weekend Market

A central meeting for gatherings and gossiping, it is the only time for the local residents to pick up their freshest fruits and vegetables. The Weekend Market of the town of Thimphu draws crowds from neighbouring villages that come to buy and sell produce ranging from local cheese and leg of yak to rich textiles and traditional masks. The market opens around noon on Friday and lasts until Sunday night.  This is a wonderful place to spend a leisurely morning while trying some local delicacies.
