Glimpses from Thimphu’s Local Vegetable Market - the Centenary Farmer’s Market - in Bhutan
The old Thimphu Market was renovated in 2008 and renamed as Centenary Market. It is a two-story complex with close to 400 stalls selling fresh fruits, vegetables, meat, fish, and other products from all regions of Bhutan. It is a 20-minute walk from the town square or a 5-minute drive from the same. Some interesting ingredients you can procure here are local cheese (datshi), wild honey, seasonal produce, Japanese rice, dried fish and meats, sausages, and even edible dried yak skin! The market is open on all days except Mondays.
