Other Markets in Mumbai

Although Crawford Market is the most historic Market in Mumbai there are others which may cater to different interests.

Colaba Causeway – A tourist market, the place to buy carved bracelets, brass filigree lanterns, silver earrings, wood carvings, embroidered slippers and more. There are also many places to eat, including a range of international choices. The location beside the sea makes it a good photo spot as well so there is a little of everything for the family here.  Nearby museums and art galleries in the mix of both Indian and old colonial buildings also provide some more up-market products to see or to buy. Colaba, south Mumbai

Chor Bazaar or “Thieve’s Market” – for Antiques, bronzes and “junk” from cell phone chargers to parts of old cars. While originally having a reputation for antiques today you will find mostly reproductions suitable for interior design. A few vendors still carry genuine historic items but you must take care when purchasing to ensure you are getting what you think you are getting. Allow plenty of time for a visit if you wish to search for that unique curio or souvenir of your time in the city.  Closed on Fridays.  Mutton Street

Linking Road – for the ladies this market has traditional clothes, shoes and bags as well as things for children. Nearby restaurants offer everything from snacks to full sit down Indian meals.  Reproductions of name brands, instant alterations and shoes galore are some of the features that bring shoppers back to this busy street of stalls and shops again and again.  Visit in the evenings for the best experience.  Bandra

Mumbai Fashion Street - Carries a range of modern clothes, shoes, belts. Mostly for locals so sizes tend to be for Indians.   MG Road in South Mumbai

Kipling Connection

Crawford Market shares an interesting connection with that great great representative of the British Empire in India, Mr Kipling. But not as you might have though, the author and journalist Rudyard Kipling, but his father John Lockwood Kipling.
