Over the years it has grown larger in scale, and has attracted a wider range of merchants as well as buyers and tourists from Xinjiang as well as neighboring countries such as Pakistan and Kirghizstan.

Bazaar as in Uygur language means farming trading market. The Sunday Bazaar in Kashgar is by far the biggest, busiest and most popular market in Xinjiang.
Every week an estimated over 50,000 people are pouring into Kashgar's Sunday Bazaar from all around on bicycles, tractors, trucks and even donkey-drawn carts. Almost

anything can be traded here from livestock such as sheep, goats, horses and camels, to clothes, fruit and vegetables. It is a fantastic place to be in if you are looking for varieties and especially bargains, as you can bargain for up to 60-70% off the labeled price!
