It's a very crowded local vandor market but a very old one in South Kolkata. One can have each and every thing in this market at cheap rates.
Various types of big branded shops are there on both sides of the street.
Footpaths are fully occupied by street vendors which spoils the beauty of these branded showrooms.
I became confused at Gariahat point which is a junction point of many roads like Bye pass,Park circus,Hazra, Jadavpur.

Gariahat Market is the best market place in South Kolkata and definitely one of the best in the town. The specialty of this market is that you get everything here from clothes to shoes, from electronics to sports items, suitable to your pocket at all price ranges You just have to know the correct place and have to be a good bargainer. There are fancy shops and street shops as well. Also there are plenty of restaurants and nice street food places everywhere. This is perhaps the best place for festival shopping especially for Durga Puja, the grand festival of the Bengali people. I feel nostalgic about the place for the same reason that I and my family used to shop from here during my childhood and adolescence.

This is one of South Kolkata's finest wholesale and retail market but everything comes at a price.
Gariahat market is actually a market with a dedicated structure and surrounding fish and vegetable market,but many reviewers here have erroneously reviewed the hawkers corner outside the Gariahat market complex or the shopping arcade on the footpath,which is again wrong !

If you want to buy the best in South Kolkata,go to Gariahat Market. In August,during the month of the famous Hilsa fish,prices soar upwards of Rs.1500 -Rs.1800 a Kilogram,but the qulaity and the tastes are superb.I know cause I live absolutely nearby and only 2 days back a pair of Hilsa fish was brought from here to our home for Rs 1800/Kg !!

Vegetables,fruits,fish,poultry all are available but you need to walk around and choose. Shopkeepers have a way with words and you need to bargain. But it is also known as a market of rich people as from a price point of view,Gariahat market charges premium rates,but then again the sold goods are A class too !

This is the lifeline of post independence Kolkata. South Calcutta has been the centre of commoners with an idea of a good life full of parks, markets and street life. Gariahat is a bustling lifeline full of all that keeps the centre alive. Fruit stalls, coconut vendors, road side fashion, tea, coffee, hummus and Chinese. You get all here. There is a specific market area that sells fish and staples inside. That is a zone of utility and not so much of a tourist visit.

if you have the energy & pursuance to make your way through crowded streets, do your saree shopping to your heart's content. Some well known & old saree shops selling traditional Bengali sarees at reasonable rates, like Adi Dakkhineswari Bastralay, Balram Saha, Priya Gopal Bishoyi, Basak, etc.

There is no better place in Kolkata for shopping than Gariahat. This area is packed with stores on both sides of all the roads. What's even better are the hundreds of stalls on the streets. You'll find just about everything in Gariahat. Buy clothes, utensils, jewellery, shoes, bags, tablecloths, etc. The little street shops are packed with goodies, and most of these are sold at really low rates. Go with ample time in hand, and keep a cool head. Try out multiple shops before buying an item. And definitely do try to bargain! I'm not good at it. However, if you are, you'll get things for extremely low prices. The stuff that I have bought from the street sides stores have never let me down. They are durable and sturdy.

If you want to shop in Kolkata, you must visit Gariahat! Also, it is safe for solo woman travellers.

Had a lot of shopping done. The market have a few traditional saree shops and the prices are ok. Although 1 can buy from the vendors or hawkers at a very cheap price but do bargain.
