If you go to Mysore, do not miss the fruit, veg and flower market, as we nearly did. It is a feast for the eyes. Ladies sewing flower garlands, I could have watched them all day. They also sell the powder that is made into paint for the 'bindi' marks. I have never seen such an array of different coloured... More

We loved it. Went early to see the wholesale market and really enjoyed it. We were not bothered much except by sellers of paints and dyes. Half an hour to an hour is enough.

Great colours, produce, photo opportunities. Makes Waitrose look very mundane! No pressure selling. Just look and feast your eyes.

I love this market, you get the occasional bothering by few guys, but otherwise pleasant, vivid colours and smells, amazing flowers. A nice couple of hours and wonder around.

This market has no meat or fish products which makes it good smelling with scents of fruit, incense and essential oils. You may feel a bit hassled by those selling, especially those without stalls who will follow you around, but the experience is worth the pests.

Do not buy oils and incense in market , buy only fruits and vegetables. The oils are fake mixed with alcohol.

In this market you will stumble across vibrant piles of coloured incense, stalls full of colourful flowers, statues of a Hindu gods and cages of animals awaiting the butcher's chop. Like the rest of India, it is an assault on the senses. Don't miss it!

As visitor from western country you should be aware that many people want to sell you many thing you don't need or want. But apart from that you' see a colorful large market with different offers you haven't seen before. Different colors, spices, fruits, simple music instruments and many more things.

The market is fantastic, great colours, sights and very friendly. Centrally located, it's definitely worth the visit.
