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.

The KR Market is large and covers many blocks. As a tourist, you may want to skip the neighborhood filled with plumbing and metal parts. Instead, head for the market building and start downstairs in the flowers. I visited Ghanaian Market a few years ago, thinking it was this place. Make sure you go to KR/Central Market

I have been to KR market on a few occasions. It is a massive flower, vegetable and household product bazaar. The shops and stalls outside of the main building are similar to other markets around India. However, inside is quite different as it is a permanent structure and largely dominated by flowers on the main floor. It is crammed with... More

All your needs can be fulfilled. Be it branded items or the copies of those items everything is available here. Only hard thing is you have to walk in the crowd to explore this place. Don't even think of taking your vehicle inside it. You ll be trapped and won't be able to take the vehicle out of it

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.

This place is not for the faint hearted, but yet it could be. Located at the center of the city, this place rains of colours and fragrances starting at 4 AM everyday. Flowers of all types flood the area and the market is buzzing all day. When you first look at it, out seems like chaos .. and that's when... More
