One of the busiest sections of the market is the one where you can find the best fresh produce. There are alleys full of fish and meat vendors just as soon as you enter this section, and an area crammed with vegetables and fruits suppliers a little further in. We spotted every kind of veggies from potatoes and tomatoes to broccoli and button mushrooms. The fruit vendors here are always stocked with fresh stocks of seasonal fruits.
The small shops here also sell groceries fo your larder – from blocks of regular butter to hard-to-find cream cheese, and all sorts of jams, pickles, flavourings, and even baking supplies.

VIP Market has stores specifically for sarees, kurtis, t-shirts, pyjamas, and other clothing items. You can even buy bedsheets, robes, sportswear, leggings, and other stuff here. And what’s more – you can often bargain and buy these for prices suitable for you. We also found tailor shops and other shops where you can get clothes stitched according to your own designs and needs. If you’re looking for fashion-related supplies like fabrics, threads, laces and other things, hunt for these on the second floor of the market.
