Flowers, Fabrics & Leather Goods: Wholesale Markets In Mumbai That Won't Leave You Broke

There are times when you don’t want to head to a shopping mall. That’s when the best wholesale markets Mumbai has to offer come in handy. Whether it’s wedding preps or a renovation – these markets have always got your back.

Gandhi Market

Specialising in women’s wardrobe, Gandhi Market in Sion is one of the most popular cloth market. This market is a one-stop place for all your traditional and Indian clothing needs including salwars and dresses, lehengas, sarees, anarkalis etc. Be sure to bargain as that’s the key to saving money here.

If you're planning on taking train, this market is just a few minutes walk from the Kings Circle station. Or you could take a cab from the Dadar station as well. 

#LBBTip: Most shops in Gandhi market are shut on Monday. So, we'd pick some other day for your shopping. 

Crawford Market

Probably the only market that will have everything from wedding supplies to imported fruits and from beauty products to utensils. Crawford market is probably the most-visited market in the city with dedicated lanes of each type of product. Not only are the supplies fresh, but everything here is priced well, especially if you’re buying in bulk. 

There is an entire lane with only shops selling wholesale products including stationery, bags, shoes, home decor, accessories etc.
