    Lots of knick knacks and souvenirs
    If you enjoy strolling down streets lines with shops and pop-ups, lots of little lanes branching off with more little shops and hidden cafes, you’ll enjoy spending a few hours here. I did find that after the first 20 mins of ooh-ing and ahh-ing at the paintings, sarongs, batiks, bags, incense sticks and scented oils, jewellery, woven bakers bags and wooden bowls, etc., it got quite repetitive. Regardless, it was an enjoyable experience and the group of us did all manage to pick up a couple of souvenirs and gifts for friends and family back home. I’d recommend going early around 10am when most shops start to open, stay for a couple of hours, then have lunch in the area.

    So much of the same!
    Great place to visit if looking for souvenirs, statues, clothing, woven bags and baskets or a plethora of other Balinese artisan products. There are many stalls, both in the main buildings and adjacent. Merchandise is repetitive and we tended to walk more quickly after the first half hour or so. The are a number of Art Markets in Ubud and I think that I prefer the street type rather than wending my way through a grand building. Still worth visiting and handily located on the Main Street.

    Shopping galore
    This is a fantastic place for shopping at a real bargain. Stores are in thousands and offering from clothes to craft and almost any thing. Indonesian batiks, clothes of all types , toys are in plenty and at an unbelievably low price. If you want to do some heavy shopping (don't want to use the word cheap as it gives a different meaning) this is the PLACE to go! You are welcome (and should) to bargain the price. An Indonesian good quality shirt as low as IRP 50 to 60,000. the same item you would pay something like IRP 150,000 near Kuta. I bought a wooden polished food serving tray (one-single piece) for IRP 150,000 and a load of clothes. I could have bargained further for the tray from the original price of IRP 250,000 but decided not. My only worry I should have bought more items to be given as gifts.

    Delightful afternoon stroll
    Visiting Ubud Traditional Market was an enchanting experience. The vibrant stalls bursting with local crafts, textiles, and fresh produce immersed me in Balinese culture. The friendly vendors and bustling atmosphere added to the charm. Exploring the market was a delightful journey into the heart of Ubud's rich traditions.

    Cute market
    Loved the little market they have. Was trying to find a magnet or keyring that said ‘Ubud’ on it rather than Bali because we’re going to few different areas. Was told by our taxi driver to bargain as much as possible. Loved the colourful streets. Managed to get everything at good price.

    Fairly typical souvenir market scene in Ubud
    The Ubud Traditional Art Market is a two floor, covered indoor market setup at the intersection of Jalan Monkey Forest and Jalan Raya Ubud. Opening hours are around 8am to 6pm daily but some stalls seem to open earlier while others remain open until later in the evening as well. You'll find stalls selling all manner of souvenirs, clothing items including scarves, shirts, sarongs as well as other textiles, local artworks and hand-craft goods. A lot of what is for sell here can also be found in the shops that line area streets so probably best to look around for a while and gauge prices before deciding on purchases. Its a all a bit of good fun even if just to look around a bit while sightseeing in this area of Ubud.

    All your Bali essentials
    Multiple markets. All the same stuff. But a good place to go and get all Bali essentials. They are happy to bargain. Very clean. The markets are under one roof but I recommend looking at all before buying from the first one. I brought some Bali pants but found some nicer ones in another shop

Disappointing tourist trap. Approx. 20 stalls within a covered area, all selling the same range of poor quality tourist tat. If you want fridge magnets, cheap market quality heavily patterned shirts or sarongs, or highly decorated wooden tat then this is for you. If you are really interested in buying quality, locally made useful products then shop elsewhere. The traders intimidate you and follow you to pressurise you into buying from their stall. The shops in the surrounding streets sell the same tat from a slightly smarter shop! We drove for 1 hour to visit this market and we left feeling cheated and saddened by the lack of authenticity and quality.

It was the first time for me to visit this market after so much change. I have been to old market years ago. The market used to be more lively having many local stalls. There were warung and kaki lima (street push cart food seller) selling cheap local food. It was full of vive because not only tourists, but also locals were hanging around and buying their necessities.
I appreciate cleaner area, but definately it lost shine. Now it became the tourist trap.
In fact, the entire Ubud area became more touristic. It could be better for local tourism, but I miss old Ubud where I used to carry a small torch light for walking on the street in the night. (Quiet and less lighting!)

this market is clearly catered to poach from tourists. for the same exact piece of souvenir, the price can vary from 50K to 150K IDR when the market price one should pay is probably 20K to begin with, at most.

bargain well, or look elsewhere

Really just another market selling the same goods you see all over, nice to walk through but would be nicer if you could actually stop and look without the sellers telling you they have T-shirts in big size and sarong for lady. Actually think I would have bought more if was left to browse but did see some nice items so good way to kill an hour or two.

You can find a lot of unique gifts from the ubud art market. Make sure you bargain hard though. It's a good strategy to start low.

Many stores had identical pieces, you have to find out the prices at different stalls for the same product if you want the cheapest rate. And you have to try bargaining because everything is overpriced to trap foreign tourists.
