Full of noise, smells and colours of Pondicherry
Jan 2020 • Couples
The market consists of various sections: fish, meat, vegetables and flowers. It is a riot of noise smells and colours as local vendors shout their offers of the day. It is full of every kind of ingredient you would need to produce a Tamil feast. The flower market is overwhelming in its colours. The non-stop bustle of sellers and buyers is in itself fascinating. The stall holders are friendly and happy to be photographed. On some maps the market is shown as the Grand Bazar. There is an eastern entrance through a faded arch on M G road past a motorbike park and entrances on all three other sides. Definitely a must visit in Pondicherry.

A market for the local people
Oct 2018 • Couples
We walked here from the hotel thinking we'd have clothes and trinkets to look at. It's really a fruit and vegetable market for the local prople.

I expect it's good at what it's intended to be but not really a tourist market. There are shops around the outside of it which sell Indian clothes, etc at Indian prices that are actually marked on.

Not worth a visit

This is just another filthy market which is totally not worth a visit. There is nothing special here.

Someone already mentioned that the address as given by Tripadvisor is not the one. Goubert Market is on Goubert street, opposite to Police Station, Nehru Street, MG Road Area, Puducherry, 605001. Lots of interesting things one expects to see in the market. The flower section is superb

A step back in time!

Visited the market on Sunday morning with the Pondy Cycle Tour. Come with a guide so you don't get lost in the crowded, covered market. So many flowers, fruits, and vegetables. See flower garland weaving in action and pick up some flowers for yourself!

TA gives wrong address and map; it's on Nehru St in center of town
Sep 2016 • Solo
To be exact, it is between Nehru St (the main shopping road in the center of town) and Ranga Pillai St, and between MG Road and Bharati St. The fish market access is on MG Road corner Nehru St (lower side). If you want to avoid the fish-smell, you can enter at the Nehru St side, there you come to fruit shops first. If you enter from Bharati St side (upper side), the flower shops come first. The market is one large block full of shops. An absolute MUST for all photographers. You can spend at least two hours in there. Lots of photo opportunities, with Tamils in traditional dress and face marks. The TA mistake stems from the mix-up of Goubert Market and Goubert Avenue (beach road or Promenade). Eduard Goubert was a prominent French politician born in Pondy, who eventually worked for the accession of Pondy to the Indian Union in 1954.

Walk around this market

Goubert Market in Puducherry is an amalgamation of several cultures into one - fresh vegetables and fruits, local cotton dresses , handloom towels, & sarees etc. A big fish market that sells variety of fish. Crowded, but well maintained market in a Central place. We bought lots of stuff in this market.

a local market in Pondicherry
Mar 2017 • Business
this is a simple market for the local produces in Pondicherry. Lot of Vegetables, fresh fruits , walk further and you will find the fish market, flower market. It is good if you want to observe the Gourmet market and how the French has developed their Gastronomy out of the local delicatessen.
