Mumbai has got plenty to offer if you are looking for fantastic shopping experiences without draining your wallet too much. We’ve rounded up a list of the Indian city’s finest thrift shopping areas and flea markets for you to explore.

Fashion Street

Lined with vendors selling all sorts of clothes at dirt cheap prices, Fashion Street in South Mumbai is a regular haunt for Mumbai’s budget-conscious fashionistas. Clothing found here ranges from traditional wear to knock-off branded sportswear. There are also plenty of vendors selling shoes, bags, watches and accessories. Fashion Street’s 150+ busy and mostly nameless pop-up shops are up and running throughout the year, only to scale back mildly during the city’s crippling monsoons.

Crawford Market, also known as Mahatma Jyotiba Phule Mandi, is among Mumbai’s largest and most popular. Vendors from around the country dealing in all sorts of items, from local produce and freshly ground spices to handicrafts and traditional jewellery, set up shop in the vast bazaar around the year. Located quite near the Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus in the historic Fort neighborhood, Crawford Market first opened in 1869.

Colaba Causeway

Among the most famous street markets in India, Colaba Causeway has the city’s best collection of knock-off traditional jewellery. Causeway’s many vendors also sell clothing, shoes, bags, souvenirs, used books and electronics, among other items. Café Mondegar, which flags the northern tip of the Causeway is a fantastic spot to grab beers when you’re in need of a break from shopping.
