KR Market is a busy, vibrant and crowded market in the heart of the city. Go early in the morning to watch fresh vegetables and flowers arrive for the day. A photographer’s delight, this market whips up a frenzy especially before important religious festivals.

The market is great to walk around and see. The must see is the flower market in the basement which is amazing. Tons of colors and really cool to walk around. All the merchants are very nice and welcoming and there is no pressure to buy and pay for anything. We went at noon but we're told it is even... More

The KR Market is large and covers many blocks. As a tourist, you may want to skip the neighborhood filled with plumbing and metal parts. Instead, head for the market building and start downstairs in the flowers. I visited Ghanaian Market a few years ago, thinking it was this place. Make sure you go to KR/Central Market

I have been to KR market on a few occasions. It is a massive flower, vegetable and household product bazaar. The shops and stalls outside of the main building are similar to other markets around India. However, inside is quite different as it is a permanent structure and largely dominated by flowers on the main floor. It is crammed with... More

All your needs can be fulfilled. Be it branded items or the copies of those items everything is available here. Only hard thing is you have to walk in the crowd to explore this place. Don't even think of taking your vehicle inside it. You ll be trapped and won't be able to take the vehicle out of it

This is the main city market for all your needs. Remember to come with empty bags to fill, don't think about wasting polythene bags. Also, best way to reach is by public transport. This place is crowded and getting parking for 2 wheeler is also difficult. Best to walk and explore.

K R Market (Krishna Rajendra Market), or City Market is one of the largest wholesale market for Bangalore. Its named after Krishnarajendra Wodeyar, a former ruler of the princely state of Mysore. The place is heavily crowded and could be slippery. One could find the Best quality fruits and Flowers in Bangalore.
