New market has its own charm. Even today when Kolkata is flooded with shopping malls offering varied range of products new market continues to stand strong. Shops like Chamba lamba selling silver jewellery oreateries like Nahoums never ceases to amuse us.It is buzzing with life. hawkers calling out their products, busy shoppers taking a respite from shopping while sipping their fresh nimbu pani will always be a delight to watch. A visit to new market will be incomplete if we dont have roll from Baadshah. One is bound to fall in love with new market during Christmas. The shops are teeming with christmas trees, ribbons, bells and ballons, all set to welcome Santa. One just cant afford to miss the vibes. Every nook & corner is decorated beautifully.. Dress materials, bangles, dry flowers everything you get under 1 roof.

New Market is not your regular mall though it has everything you need. There building itself is beautiful. The shops here sell everything from fresh fruits and vegetables to great souvenirs at competitive prices. Yes it’s crowded and not very posh, but one thing is for certain - This place has soul

The old charm still remains. Everything for daily life youwould get under the same roof. Giving i star short because the ,arket is not properly maintained. You get everything here. From fish, muttonm checken, egg, vegetables, fruits to cakes, garments, fashion things allat a very reasonable rates.

Having gone to this place whenever I visit Kolkata (I live abroad), I can say there is a nice selection of shops and it is one of Kolkata's main shopping hubs (for which I've given two stars) but the interior/indoor covers and set of corridors inside the market are otherwise quite dirty and very poorly maintained which is not helped by the fact that the place can get crowded & there are street dogs in the middle of the market.

Not to mention there can be some weird/dodgy people in the market (I visited the market last week with my family and there was an old shopkeeper who followed us around even when we told him we didnt need any help - people really need to learn not to pester people if they know where to go or are not interested in seeing a particular shop - and it's best to also take care in case there are pickpocketers).

Its a shame because this is a market/shopping centre right in the central part of Kolkata and so it could have easily been a great indoor shopping mall/market (I have visited a few indoor shopping malls in the outskirts of Kolkata and they definitely put this place to shame) catering for all but lack of investment and maintenance have both let this place down (I'm just surprised there’s hardly any plans in place to improve it).

Browsing the stalls in the market with the better half can be an overwhelming experience, but gets more comprehensible with repetition. Always get something delectable from Nahouns. Then the array of decorations and party accessories, bags, textiles . Some of the shops discreetly hark back to a heritage from the start of the previous century . Always find something new here, this time it was a display of plump dolls. Is this back in demand for kids? After going through the market there are still the bylanes to explore. Shoes, silk shirts, saris, some legendary Kolkata brands are located here. 2 interesting hours.

Home to over 2,200 stores that trade in all sorts of items—from local food items to electronics & textiles—Kolkata’s New Market is a unique shopping destination and a historic landmark. The size of stores vary from very small to very big.
Founded in late eighteenth century , the market has survived two major fires and several instances of major flooding to continue being one of the city’s prime trading hubs

Sprawling market with 100’s maybe close to a 1000 small stalls and shops. A lot selling clothes and some interesting local items. Easy to get lost and sometimes you get bothered by sellers trying to get you to visit their shop. They are friendly and helpful but can be annoying when the 10th one try’s to sell you the same stuff. We lasted 2 hours hours purchased some nice things then escaped ! Tip you must haggle and do not be afraid to walk away, but be friendly not aggressive.

This is India the sights, sounds, smells....the people, the chaos. Lots of items on offer, plenty of food options too. Take time to wander around and take it all in. An attack on all the senses.... several beggars though- exercise normal caution. Very interesting place to visit.

New market is one of the best shopping diatricts in Kolkata with great variety and scope for bargaining. Clothes, shoes, bags and all that you can think of is available here. Only problem is the congestion. It will be best to take a taxi to Hotel Oberoi Grand at Esplanade and walk from there.

Very crowded market but full of good products and deals. A foreigner might feel a bit hassled here especially bcos of beggars and local vendors but it is a place to go if you intend to do some shopping especially clothes and other related fashion products. Better to accompany a local with you.
