Central Market: Downtown Shopping
I went shopping at the central market.
The prices were not much different from those in Luhansk.
There are many kiosks where ladies from the country sell their harvest goods: vegetables, sunflower oil, eggs, etc.
You can get a good bargain for honey here: 40 UAH for a one liter jar.
Novopskov District is famous for its bee-keeping. You can even see three bees on its coat-of-arms.
Almost every household has beehives.
What to buy: honey, eggs and sunflower oil - the best products from local villages
