  • A must shopping stop if you are looking for trendy items at a price much below the belt of big shopping malls. You get the trend setter clothes bags jwellery and all what you could think off!! The only thing you require is a good skill to bargain!! Believe me the price quoted by the hawkers around 1000 bucks could go down to 100-150 if you could bargain!!!! So have a good luck bargaining for the best deals of these trendy items!!! Some shopkeepers do hang a fixed price shop placard to get rid from the bargainers.....Happy shopping!! You could also taste the street food of Kolkata at it's best in and around New Market!!!
  • This is cheap market, variety of stores are there and small shops along the road which provide you the great products at that price range. If you roam around properly and visit nooks and corner you can have great variety specially in clothing (only Girls). Street food is also available. Two things required for this market :- 1. Be a great negotiator, otherwise you will be a fool. 2. Have that courage and patience to move amidst huge group of people. Also have patience to visit various stores. You can also go inside some malls near by like Simpark Mall and have great clothing options and a bit higher price than those on road but you will have variety of options ( only girls again and do negotiate ) All the best !! Happy Shopping All
  • The place is very good. It is located in centre kolkata. Everything is cheaper here specially garments. One five start hotel named The Grand is here. Few other renowned restaurant also here. Peerless in is also here. You can get very delicious food from here. Variations available here.
  • Inspire of several malls that has mushroomed around kolkata, new market still had its charm and the only place in the city where wide variety of products available under one roof. If you can't find in new market i doubt you will find it in other malls. Though it is not attractive,clean well lot like other malls still it had its charm. One must be careful with their personal belongings and pockets. Well known for pickpocket. If you are in New Market,visiting Nahaoums bakery is a must. Try there pastries, rum balls
  • Built by the British as the erstwhile Hogg Market , situated in the heart of the city, it is reminiscent of colonial Calcutta. The sprawling market complex still stands as one of the most well stocked and busiest markets of Kolkata.From the century old heritage shops to the newest showrooms all co-exist here.The original market building has different rows allotted to different types of wares. The sight , sound and aroma of this place is an experience to remember.New Market and it's surrounding neighbourhood of Park Street has a very special place in every Kolkatan's heart.
