Many years ago my mum bought me a pair of rabbits from one of themany pet stores in this market so its really one of my favourite shopping places in Mumbai. My dad and I buy nuts and dry fruit from Royal, cheese from Narayan , great salad leaves and avocado from Trikaya, superbly priced Italian pasta sauces and Thai curry pastes from Lucky ( my dad also buys his cigarettes wholesale from a shop at the back of the market) so we get every edible delicacy (excluding meat) under one roof. the market has bustle, colour, real atmosphere and just about every food a household needs. And even a pet section!!

Well Yes that's the name for Crawford Market I really wonder how many of you would actually know it.
Located in the heart of the city Mumbai one can find almost anything and every thing in this market.
You will find all kinds of things out there from Imported Cheese/Chocolates to even Royal Alphonso Mangoes well off course in season though.
Well most of the products are at a wholesale price so get enough shopping bags when you come along to this great market of Mumbai City.

Originally called Crawford market. It is a market place selling almost everything from vegetables, cosmetics to pets. While it is great to walk around and have a look it is also a good place to shop for veges and Fruits. However even though cosmetics are cheap out here they are more often then not duplicates and fake so be careful while buying the imported and multinational brands.

The Old Crawford Market has now been renamed as Mahatma Jyotiba Phule Market. Though people remember it by its age-old name only. Once it was known as Imported Stuff Market, but now it has been reduced to food items, pickles etc etc. It has numerous lanes and bye lanes for shopping. Every visitor is advised to have a look at this market.

Formerly called Crawford Market, and still is for all practical purposes, this is the wholesale market. We went there in search of some supplies for a local orphanage and found everything we needed. Really inexpensive and plenty of selection. This is a local market - we didn't see any other tourists - fruits, veggies, supplies of all kinds. Outside the market there are lots of shops to look in if you want, some excellent local shoe stores and textiles. If you've never been to a "local marketplace" in India that sells things other than tourist junk, you might check it out. Not a must-see but if you're interested in the marketplace, there is also a fish market that is open only in mornings and afternoons, fun to watch the locals go on about their daily business.

Cheese from Europe at 60% of store prices, fresh wholesale fruit at 75% of street vendor prices, great exotic veggies and herbs, imported chocs and cigarettes at Mumbai's best prices....the list of great opportunities to buy the best products at super prices in this market goes on and on! ITS A WINNER IN EVERY SENSE EXCEPT FOR THE CROWDS!!!

Half of the population wouldn’t even know the current name.. One of them was me  until few days back
Crawford Market one of the oldest market in Mumbai and the first building in India that was lit up by electricity. A wholesale house where you can find fresh fruits and vegetables to cosmetics to household items. All the imported brands as well can be found here. Its always crowded and hot as it not air conditioned market ventilation is only by ceiling fans. Don’t expect it to be clean and tidy…

Crawford Market is one of South Mumbai's most famous markets. It is named after Arthur Crawford, the first Municipal Commissioner of the city. The Market was later named after Mahatma Jotirao Phule after a long struggle by the President of Mahatma Phule Smarak Samiti, Mukundraoji Bhujbal Patil. The market is situated opposite the Mumbai Police headquarters, just north of Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus railway station and west of the J.J. flyover at a busy intersection. The market houses a wholesale fruit, vegetable and poultry market. One end of the market is a pet store. Different varieties of dogs, cats, and birds can be found in this area. Most of the sellers inside the market sell imported items such as foods, cosmetics, household and gift items. It was the main wholesale market for fruits in Mumbai until March 1996, when the wholesale traders were relocated to Navi Mumbai (New Bombay).
