Mahatma Jyotiba Phule Market or Crawford Market: A Popular Shopper’s Delight

Location: Mumbai, Maharashtra

All the Mumbaikars and those who have been to Mumbai will definitely vouch for the fact that the Crawford Market is the liveliest and the most crowded shopping arcade in the city of dreams. Located right in the heart of the city in front of the iconic Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus Railway Station, the Crawford Market was built during the time of the British Raj. After independence, the market was officially named after the social reformer Jyotibha Phule and thus, gained popularity as Mahatma Jyotibha Phule Market.

Stretching across an area of 24000 sq. feet, Mahatma Jyotibha Phule Market or the Crawford Market is one of the oldest markets in Mumbai. The building, which the market encompasses, was constructed in the year 1869. At present, this grand market houses several wholesale outlets of fruits, vegetables and poultry items. Apart from this, a variety of consumer goods such as footwear, clothes, leather goods, toys, cosmetics etc. are also available here. One can also find a pet store at one end of the market.

The Crawford Market is like a shopper’s delight in the city of Mumbai. It is not only ideally located but is also easily accessible from all parts of the city.
