“Real feel of a market place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2012

It has numerous shops, various sizes selling almost every thing which you may need in your pantry. A place always bustling with shoppers.

“Old Market”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2012

It is a very old market with beautifull facet and ugly interior. There is dirty meat market and not a necessary place to visit.

Old building erected by the british during the domination.
inside there are sseveral section , from the butcher , to the live animal and the Fish market , eveery thing.
very bad to see the pet market with animal costricted with ropes or ohter sispetm , without any respect.
bad smell everywhere ,and non easy to stay inside for the crude things that you can see in the butcher section.
very bad smell in the fish market .
Pay attention at the security , need some security body guard with you for teh microciminality.

“loved the fresh vegetables. And of course our cooley..”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2006

My family lived in pakistan for 15 yrs. Of that 15, 12 were spent in karachi. Every thursday my mom did all of her grocery shopping at empress market. We had the same cooley for about 12 yrs. I would love to go back and go to empress market again. I think every body should visit the fish market, and also the meat market. I think the openess of the market would be very interesting for tourist also. It was also a very friendly place.
