Russian Market at Your Fingertips

The world of eCommerce is a burgeoning enterprise. The convenience and ease of online shopping now offers the same sales incentives and bargain purchases once reserved for foot shoppers at brick and mortar stores. While most may be aware of the benefits of online shopping at national chain and big box stores, how many have considered that the Internet also provides access to specialty stores and niche markets once only found in major metropolitan areas, if at all?

Whether you are an immigrant yourself or have immigrant parents, whether you have travelled to Russia and are looking to recapture some of its atmosphere or if you simply want to explore a new culture, shopping online at a Russian market is an easy way to bring the faraway into your home.

The Taste of Russian Cuisine

Nothing really connects us to a culture quite the way that food does. Immigrants to new countries often soften the pangs of homesickness by preparing special foods reminiscent of “home”. World travelers love to relive their adventures by seeking out ethnic restaurants and groceries. Now, foods which are the daily fare of Russians can be ordered with the simple click of a mouse. Choose from “Kabonsy” a hunter’s sausage, prepared according to the time-honored recipe, or cheeses like “Tvorog Bazarnyi” a dry curd cheese and “Viola” a softer cheese.

Roasted sunflower seeds wrapped in newsprint are often sold on the busy streets of Russia by elderly women – but you can also buy them online. Rye breads, poppy seed cakes and raisin cakes are evocative of mornings spent sipping tea and munching bakery goods. And, of course, nothing says “Russian” like a tin or jar of caviar…available for purchase and under $20. Let the Russian feast begin!

Russian Artisans

Whether you seek a memento or a connection with family history, the artisans of a country reflect its heart. Nesting dolls are the uniquely Russian adornments everyone enjoys. Look for these wooden dolls which hide surprise after surprise and are painted with themes ranging from “Russian Tales” to “Winter Troika” to dolls that capture the famous Russian fairy tale “The Fisherman and the Fish”. Faberge eggs reflect the opulence and grandeur that was tsarist Russia. Online Russian markets make these treasures available in a gauntlet of sizes, colors and price points. To give or receive a Faberge egg is to share a gift steeped in Russian history.

Many of our images of Russia include Babushka – or grandmother – wearing a distinctly Russian scarf or shawl. Now you no longer need to travel to the land of winter in order to own the warmth and beauty of the traditional Russian garb. Pavolovo shawls are created in a village not far from Moscow. Today anyone who so desires may purchase the 100 percent soft wool scarves made in the Pavloposadskaya factory which bear elegant Russian designs.

Souvenir shops offer those folk art gifts which when placed around our home surprise us with a quick flash of memory. Russian e-Stores offer those same highly decorated jewelry boxes, plates, mugs, coffee pots and breadboards that visitors snug into every nook and cranny of their suitcases before returning home.

Finally, postcards and greeting cards are the traditional way to share your love of “place” with another. Look for distinctly Russian cards graced by pictures of Moscow, St. Petersburg and Russian religious icons when you visit the online Russian market. Send one to a friend and include the Web address of your newest find – the online Russian store.
