Crawford Market

This 1850' market is due to be replaced with a modern structure. Pity! This is a must for any visitor to Mumbai.

The frieze on the façade was designed by Lockyard Kipling, father of Rudyard. Although there were all sorts of meats, fruits, vegetables, and souveniers, the whole market smelled like an open sewer. It was very off-putting

This is one marketplace where you may find anything and everything. Each lane sells similar objects. From vegetables and grains to sweets, from cake pans to baskets, from clothes to leathergoods, everything sells here. One has to walk and do the shopping. And if you are new to the place, take the help of a local to know the availability... More

Upon arrival, we hired a porter to take us through the market and get us to the items we were most interest in. We got to each merchant quickly, got great prices and excellent spices, silk and pashminas...couldn't be happier.

Nothing to write home about. I was underwhelmed by this market and it was not worth the time and effort to get there. Mumbai is a tough city to negotiate. It's more like an obstacle course and running the gauntlet rolled into one. The market was unimpressive and although it serves the needs of the local population, for tourists, there... More

Crawford Market is pretty much where the locals go to shop. There is a selection of shops offering spices, nuts and dried fruit. Basketware, luggage, toiletries and pharmacy items, gift boxes and some lovely displays of fresh fruit and vegetables. And of course the very odorous fish and meat section! I was not in the mood to bargain so the... More

Market can be describes as a most crowded place in south Bombay, where one can get any desirable thing in cheaper rates. Bargaining is must. Give way to hawkers and labourers who are continuously taking things from one place to other. This can be tiresome shopping as you will tend to buy more than what you have decided. Festival time...
