Mumbai ATTRACTIONS See all

Crawford Market

This fabulous market is Mumbai’s largest, and also goes by the name of Mahatma Jyobita Phule. With its turrets and gables, it looks more like a medieval fort than a municipal market, and for visitors it’s every bit as exotic.

The market buildings were built in the 1860s and named for the city’s first Municipal Commissioner. The exterior frieze was designed by the father of Rudyard Kipling, and the interior is lit by a lofty skylight.

Come here to people-watch as locals load up on household goods and everyday items like fresh produce and flowers.

Guided walks are the best way to visit the market, ideally avoiding the meat section and targeting the fruit, vegetables and pets.

You’re in the right place if you’re feeling peckish, as the market also hosts street stalls and food vendors. Rose-flavored milk drinks are a popular choice, along with fresh seasonal fruit like mangoes and apples.

Practical Info

Crawford Market is in central Mumbai, a little north of the Chhatrapati Shivaji railway terminus.
