Our Master Guide To When Some Of Mumbai's Best Known Shopping Markets Are Shut

If you love shopping, there's a slim chance you haven't visited the popular shopping markets in Mumbai and fallen in love with them! However, the last thing that anyone wants is a shut market on that particular day. In order to save you from the pain of taking a train/cab all the way from your home to the market and finding it closed, we have compiled this masterguide that you must pin on your cupboard.

Hill Road, Bandra

Hill Road in Bandra is amongst the top favourites for the ladies. It never shuts itself out completely, but some shops are closed on Mondays or Thursdays.

Chor Bazaar, Grant Road

The mighty chor bazaar is known to hoard some of the rarest finds in the city. If you’re looking for typewriters, antiques, gramophones or anything old-school, skip going on a Friday (that's when they are shut).

    Crawford Market, Fort
