Nice place for shopping. Reasonable rates... Quality of garments are quite good according to the rates and a one stop shopping point.

Easily the most interesting, vibrant market I've ever been to! Thousands of stalls which sell anything you can think of, from handicrafts to textiles to foods. It's incredibly easy to get lost here, so proceed consciously. Make sure you go with someone who knows the area/can speak the language. Although some vendors speak English, it was much easier to bargain... More

New Market area is actually a number of parallel roads that is home to innumerable shops selling almost everything that one can think of! The market dates back to the British era.. Even if you don't buy anything, a stroll starting from the pavement of the Oberoi Grand (erstwhile Grand hotel of the British era) and ending at the the... More

I am inclined to say as good Samaritan of Kolkata, that New Market continues to be one of the most fascinating old market places with all its charm and old glory intact. While many things have changed since 1991, the first time when I stepped in here for a pie,in a cake shop, much has changed, including the culture of... More

The New Market is decades old - a British legacy - originally known as the Hogg Market. It remains one of the classic covered markets with a literally endless number of shops offering a variety of goods covering almost every thing under the sun, from clothes to crockery to flowers to fruits to meats & vegetables to bakery products.

This place reminded me a bit of Crawford Market in Mumbai. It is super crowded, and not really something I enjoy on holiday. However the Nahoums bakery in New Market offers some delicious chocolate fudge.
