A real Indian market worth visiting

Chaotic. Noisy. Smelly at times. Full of life and very interesting to visit. Mostly goods for locals but some spices and more touristy things to buy. It is easy to get lost... read more

While Foreigners may find the visit to such a market interesting, most Indians will find this a waste of time.

Chaotic. Noisy. Smelly at times. Full of life and very interesting to visit. Mostly goods for locals but some spices and more touristy things to buy. It is easy to get lost because it is so big. Meat, fish and veg are available here. Really interesting to see the unusual veg and fish on sale. We will definitely visit again.... More

We didn't go on a Friday, but was worth a visit. Hustle and bustle of a real working market.

My wife and son weren't too keen on... More

Luckily it was Friday when we visited this famous market. I never saw so many scooties parked at one place. Crowded and having lots of shops selling fish vegetables and all other essentials needed by locals. Must visit if you want to have a smell of Goan lifestyle.

Love to walk round this market, taking in the noise and the smells (some good some not so good), reminds us of the markets we went to in our childhood before they became too sanitised. Try to find "Vithu Cold Drink" for a Lime Soda and a chat with a genuine Goan.
