This bazaar is quite big, but nothing really special. Has nothing going for it you won't find in any other bazaar from Istanbul to India.

By reading the reviews below, I think that a lot of people did not go there as the description does not correspond.
This bazaar is huge and 99.999 of the people there are locals doing their shopping. Did not see a single tourists in the two hours we spent there. This is just across the bridge from the old town.
We bought some saffran from Iran which was 10% of the price that we pay back home. Also bought some chuan'r along the street and watermelon. We also tried their drink which is made of yogurt, ice and honey. Quite tasty.
A must do in Kashgar.

It all depends on what you are looking for. This is a huge market, but a lot of the same stuff. Lots of bright colored fabrics, too gaudy for me. I like practical things; not much of that. They did have some nice fur items.

The 'Sunday Market' is a huge place with a little bit of everything. However, as our hostel owner said, it's there for the tourists. We saw lots of locals shopping as well, but compared to other central Asian markets we've visited, this one is pretty average.
We are backpacking, so we went more for the sight than the shopping. We were warned, 'if they say 100yuan, then most likely 30yuan.' So be aware of tourist pricing.
There is lots to look at and just sight see within the market like instruments, clothing, spices, etc. Across the street is part of the old town, which is interesting to view from the market side.

I've just returned from a most memorable travel experience in Xingjiang and Gansu. Six 'mature' friends and I, all experienced travellers, researched where we wanted to go and things to do, and then contacted Old Road Tours which is a Kashgar based tour company run by Uyghur brothers. We discovered this company via an excellent review that appeared in The Australian newspaper this year. Their response to my enquiry was immediate, all communications easy and all our plans were accommodated at a very reasonable cost. Through the professionalism, friendliness and flexibility of the guides from this company who speak excellent English we were able to experience these fascinating regions and develop some understanding of the local cultures, which was especially the case the further west we went. The drivers and modes of transport were excellent. It is possible to travel with this great company on many levels of comfort from the usual to real adventure. We chose bazaars, markets, villages, local food (yum!), a trip over the stunning Karakorum Highway to Tashkurgan via picturesque Karakul Lake, Turpan, Hotan, Dunhuang Caves, to name just a few. Our trip was a fleeting two weeks but has left us with a deep sense of satisfaction. If you have any interest in the Silk Road this is the region to visit and this is the company to choose. If you want to bike ride across the Pamirs (!) this is also the company for you. They'll give you a travel experience that is authentic in a region they know and love.
