Top 5 Places to Street Shop in Mumbai


Who doesn't like shopping? And who doesn't enjoy getting a good shopping deal? Everybody does. At least every woman does. So if you are a shopping freak, then Mumbai is the best place to be. Mumbai, often termed as the fashion capital of India is no doubt a shopper's paradise. Fashion boutiques, swanky malls, high end retailers, we have it all. However, it is street shopping in Mumbai  that can take you to an altogether different level of bliss. Here are some of the best places to explore and shop in the city.

Colaba Causeway
The Culture Square of Mumbai, Colaba Causeway, has innumerable small shops and footpath stalls that sell all types of apparel, shawls, kolapuri chappals, jewellery, bags, belts, cosmetics and minor antiques. One of the busiest shopping areas in the city, this place has something for everyone, be it college students, housewives or backpackers. More than the shopping it is the feel and color of this place that can make the experience extremely pleasureable.


Fashion Street
If you want to keep up with the latest Bollywood fashion trends, then Fashion Street or FS is the ideal place for you. Considered as a paradise for shoppers, one can  find over 100 stalls here that mostly sell export rejects that have minor defects. A favorite shopping destination for college goers, Fashion street offers clothes and fashion accessories at amazingly cheap rates.


Linking Road
Linking Road located in Bandra, is a cause for major traffic jams in the evenings, when shopping enthusiasts hit this spot in large numbers. Popular for shoes, bags, fake jewellery, both Indian and western clothes, this place is a shopping mecca and caters to all kinds of budgets.


Crawford Market
The most vibrant of all, the Crawford Market is famous for flowers, fruits, vegetables, fish and meat. Dry fruits, nuts, chocolates, fabric, decorative items and imported food items are also sold here at whole sale rates. This market, named after Arthur Crawford, the first Municipal Commissioner of Mumbai also boasts of pet stores, which is one interesting feature of this market.


Chor Bazaar
Mumbai's famous Thieves Market is a must visit for bargain hungry antique lovers. Over 150 years old, this market originally sold stolen goods. However, inorder to have a good deal in this bizzare market you have to make use of your bargaining skills. As goes a famous saying about this area," if you lose anything in Mumbai you can buy it back from the Chor Bazaar.
