The Tehran Bazaar (Jom’eh Bazaar) has been officially relocated to Baghe Honar (Art Garden) in the Abbasabad Hills area of the city.
The Friday Market (in English) has been a popular haunt for locals, embassy staff and tourists alike in recent years with its wide array of trinkets, and second-hand items which can be found for bargain prices.
Previously situated in the Parvaneh (Butterfly) multi-story parking in Jomhuri (Republic) Street, the municipal organisers cancelled the event earlier this year due to the sardine-can nature of the parking lot downtown and the increasing risks associated with this year.
Opening hours are similar to those in the downtown with the event running in the morning until lunchtime (ish).
The event had become a significant risk for visitors and stallholders due to the impact of coronavirus (COVID-19) on the city and although space had air circulating; they deemed it unsuitable.
The new location is located fully outdoors and is a quick hop from the Haqqani Metro station and close to the Hemmat and Haqqani highways.
While in the area, you can explore the fabulous military museum next door, and the recently constructed Tehran Book Garden.
Several food trucks and stalls are also in the area outside the Tehran Book Garden’s rear courtyard where you can grab a juicy burger or coffee whilst taking in the sunshine.
