The name of crawford market has been changed to Mahatma Jyotiba Phule Mandai, but people still call it Crawford market.. The market is open throught the day and follows normal business hours.. But if you wish to purchase fruits and vegetables then it would be better if you come early so that you can get fresh stuff.. So timings actually depend on what you wish to buy as few of the shops dont open till 11:00.. On sundays the maket is not fully operational.
Also, there is a large pet animal market where dogs, cats, fishes, parrots are displayed and sold. There are many shops selling chocolates and snacks both of international as well as local made.. Shampoos, soaps, perfumes, cosmetics and other packaged goods are also available here.. Household plastic ware items are also available in the outside lane.. Street stalls outside the market sell ladies clothing, children’s clothes and toys and much more..Some of the stalls are part of the market itself, under the roof. But others are portable street hawkers using backs of motorcycles and cars to sell.. So visit this market if you wish to buy good stuff at reasonable rates
