Give Grocery Stores A Miss, Stock Up Your Fridge From This Floating Market Instead
What Makes It Awesome
Just as you enter Patuli, you'll notice the Floating Market set up in all its glory. Being Kolkata’s first ever floating market, it's quite a visual treat, especially if you visit at night. It's amazing how you can get anything and everything that you'd expect to shop for at any local market, from fruits and vegetable to meat and other groceries, you can even get paan and chai here. Also, it houses two local salons for quick haircut and shops where you can get your shoes polished. The market is set up on a pretty large scale and needs some time to be covered in its entirety.
What Could Be Better?
The water seemed a tad bit dirty and can definitely do with cleaning.
The entry gates are not on the EM bypass side so if you have taken a cab or driven down, make sure you take the Patuli turn and alight near the back of the market.
