While perhaps best known for its celebrated sari stores, Gariahat Market is the one-stop destination for all your shopping needs, from textiles, clothes, accessories, and shoes, to electronics and hardware. Be sure to bring your finest bargaining skills – you won’t leave disappointed! And while the area houses a range of well-known and popular restaurants, there’s also the opportunity to buy fresh seafood, meat, and produce in the market.
This vibrant wholesale market isn’t just one of the largest in India, but also one of the busiest. Spanning a large neighborhood in Kolkata, Burrabazar is divided into various sub-sections, depending on which commodities are being traded. From jewelry to freshly ground spices, the market trades in a rich and varied selection of goods.
