  • IMA market is located in Imphal. It is the world's only market owned and run by women. In Manipuri language Ima means mother. The market is open from 5 am everyday. The power of women lies in collective strength and unity. All the vegetables sold here are organic. The market came into existence in 16th century. Massive losses to the market after 2016 earthquake. The unwritten rules makes this market more special. The responsibility of guarding the shops is done by men. All the products sold here are indigenous. The popularity of the market is increasing over the years. Saree, Mekhla, half-saree all are available here in the cloth market. British built iron made sheds to establish the market. Some women have established there shops from 40-50 years. Ima fought against the British rules. Ima market is the pride of Manipur. Ima's have protested against the human rights violation.
  • A woman market located in the heart of lmphal city selling from clothings to groceries.It is the largest women run market in Asia.
  • This market located with in the busy city centre ,sells locally grown vegetables and products, fair price and you can do the bargains too but please ⚠️don't try to argue with vendors. Most interesting thing about this market is you can see only female vendors here. Is this discrimination ? what ever reason behind it this discrimination needs to be abolished.
  • One and only market run by women in the whole wide world
  • This Imas (mothers) are very lovely.They will help you in finding anything you want to buy in this huge and beautiful keithel (market)
