At walking distance from Chatrapathy Shivaji railway Terminus, situated right opposite the City Police Commissioner's office, Phule Market is still known as Crawford Market to the majority. The place has got an old world charm and the market is flush with fresh fruits, dry fruits and a whole lot of imported stuff.

Before there were malls - all glitzy but soulless- there was Crawford Market- now known as Mahatma Jyotiba Phule Market. Rows of shops in concentric circles display fresh market produce and other necessities. Dry fruit, toiletries, bags and pans all find place under one roof at the best prices in the city. The atmosphere- priceless.

Went to Lucky stores deep in one corner of the market to buy Thai curry pastes and as usual was amazed at the value for money obtained by shopping at this market! The finest foodstuffs including foreign cheeses are available here at great prices!
