The Besarabsky Market, also referred to as the Besarabka, is an indoor market located in the center of Kiev on the Bessarabska Square at the southwest end of the city’s main thoroughfare, the Khreshchatyk.

Its name originates from Bessarabia, a region conquered by the Russian Empire during the Russo-Turkish Wars and now partially located in southwestern Ukraine on the territory of the Odessa Oblast (province).

1904 donated the Kiev sugar baron, patron and philanthropist Lasar Brodsky the city 500,000 rubles for the construction of a market hall. Constructed in 1910-1912 to a design of Polish architect Henryk Julian Gay, which was built in the rational Art Nouveau style with elements of Constructivism, the market features 896 square metres (9,640 sq ft) of market space. The hall has a 15 m high glass roof and a façade decorated with reliefs with livestock and peasant scenes.
