It is a wholesale cum retail market selling India and exotic groceries, vegetables, imported cosmetics, travel bags, house hold items etc. This place was really crowded but worth going because of the highly reasonable pricing. Needless to say, one needs to know how to bargain! If you want to buy Arabic candies and chocolates, then you can get a lot of them over here.Local Bus rideI took a bus ride from Crawford market towards Colaba and admired the beautiful gothic-revival and Mughal inspired architecture along the way. I crossed Municipal Corporation Building, Times of India and Churchgte railway station.
This is another shopping destination many locals sprawl to for Christmas goodies.
Mahatma Jyotiba Phule Mandai, Marathi: महात्मा ज्योतिबा फुले मंडई (formerly Crawford Market Marathi: क्रॉफर्ड मार्केट) is one of South Mumbai's most famous markets. It was earlier 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. Also, endangered species are illegally sold there.
The market is named after the first Municipal Commissioner of the city, Arthur Crawford and was designed by British architect William Emerson. The Victorian-era building whose edifice is a blend of Flemish and Norman architectural styles stands out in the bustling neighborhood. This market is one of the largest wholesale markets in India serving everything from traditional handwork cloth to exotic pets to fresh vegetables vendors to exquisite paper crafts.
