KR Market is a busy, vibrant and crowded market in the heart of the city. Go early in the morning to watch fresh vegetables and flowers arrive for the day. A photographer’s delight, this market whips up a frenzy especially before important religious festivals.

This is the main city market for all your needs. Remember to come with empty bags to fill, don't think about wasting polythene bags. Also, best way to reach is by public transport. This place is crowded and getting parking for 2 wheeler is also difficult. Best to walk and explore.

K R Market (Krishna Rajendra Market), or City Market is one of the largest wholesale market for Bangalore. Its named after Krishnarajendra Wodeyar, a former ruler of the princely state of Mysore. The place is heavily crowded and could be slippery. One could find the Best quality fruits and Flowers in Bangalore.

It is the very cheapest Market of bangalore as I bought a TV two times from this market. All things are available here. You will get everything you want for your business, home and also party 🎉. I would suggest to visit every time you wants to buy something house hold items. Very cheap and easy to use.

So much colour, good smells (and a few bad), and perfection among chaos. Incredible fruit&veggies, gorgeous spices and beautiful flowers. :) Very friendly stall owners. Make sure you go inside to the flower section. It's so beautiful.

A street photographer's delight. this market opens at 5 in the morning ...make sure you are there to witness the colorful flowers unloaded and vendors eagerly selling the beauties. the adjacent avenue road is also amazing for photography .......visit the market to enjoy the buzzing life. The vendors are people friendly and really don't mind you taking their pictures.
