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.

Markets are always wonderful in India and this is no exception being fairly compact yet full of all kinds of things and some difficult to name. especially liked the lady selling some fresh green herbs who took a fancy to me when i asked for a picture. The sellers must be used to tourists wandering through !

We had a few hours to kill in our schedule and decided to wander around this working market. It's an incredible place full of the sights, sounds and smells of a local market for local people. Go with a wide angle lens and a flash, ask permission before you photograph and you'll be rewarded with some amazing shots of buyers,... More
