Before there were malls - all glitzy but soulless- there was Crawford Market- now known as Mahatma Jyotiba Phule Market. Rows of shops in concentric circles display fresh market produce and other necessities. Dry fruit, toiletries, bags and pans all find place under one roof at the best prices in the city. The atmosphere- priceless.

Went to Lucky stores deep in one corner of the market to buy Thai curry pastes and as usual was amazed at the value for money obtained by shopping at this market! The finest foodstuffs including foreign cheeses are available here at great prices!

An excellent place for best range of fruits in Mumbai. The Gothic architect of the building is from the historical era which has been over taken by surrounding towers and fading away in the busy market. Check the best Mangoes

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!!!
