  • This the place where people who belong to middle class feel comfortable spending time with their family engaging themselves shopping. Variety of products are available with affordable price. After shopping you can have option to taste local foods. Just opposite to New Market, there is a cinema hall named Elite. So you can make a day long program visiting around New Market Area.
  • A colorful, crowded market place that is the best place to shop in Kolkata. It offers a variety of cheap to extravagant products. This is perhaps the place where you'll find absolutely anything you want. Just need to know where to get it from. Plenty of shoe shops and stalls, also bags, jewellery, stoles, clothes, etc. Also has a grocery and a green grocery section that offers all those TLC ingredients. Indeed a foodies paradise. Also has flower shops. And if you are hungry doing all that shopping, you can satisfy yourself with the number of cafes, hotels, restaurants and bakeries that this place has to offer.
  • My favourite window shopping place at the moment. Can't help but binge shop whenever I'm here. Great collection of everything plus it's super cheap. Definitely recommend for clothing and luggage. Just don't splurge like me when you're here! 😂
  • You will find almost everything you need for day to day life and that too at the best price. You just have to know the right place. The place may not be very posh or luxurious, but who cares.. Take the whole day off and stroll at snail's pace. You will surely enjoy the experience.
  • Lots of option for shopping and dinning . The market is good for street shopping as well as you can buy from branded stores also. Earlier there used to be lots of bargaining but now they have fixed the price at reasonable rates. You can have lots of different street food here. Cheap and affordable. Must visit place in Kolkata with friends ,family as well as alone.
