Ten-Second Takeaway

Have you ever been turned down by a market, leaving you disgruntled? We have been, numerous times. In order to save you from the pain of taking a cab/train, all the way to the end of the city only to find a market is shut, pin this list on your cupboard.

Hill Road

The favourite for ladies doesn’t shut itself out completely {thank god for that}, but some shops are closed on Mondays.

Chor Bazaar

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.


The mecca for all things home decor and a million other things, Crawford Market shuts its door on Sundays. However, some shops are open in the morning so make the most of first half.


Bhuleshwar market stocks glass bangles, embroidered sarees and more. The market is open all days so you can go crazy, whenever.

Colaba Causeway

Not closing on any day, Colaba Causeway kills it with its artefacts, apparel, shoes and jewellery collection.

Zaveri Bazaar

The jewellery haven shuts its doors on Sundays. So if you wanna go berserk shopping for cool jewellery, head whenever, barring Sunday.

Gandhi Market, Sion

Gandhi Market, famous among the ladies for traditional wear is out of action on Mondays.

Linking Road, Bandra

Hill Road’s chaotic sister, Linking Road is mostly functional on all days, but if you’re looking for a particular shop on a Monday, do call them before heading.

Fashion Street, Fort

Open on all days, Fashion Street in Fort is famous for its collection of clothes, jewellery and accessories.

Dadar East and West

Dadar, the vortex that houses everything from apparel, home decor to great food is shut on Mondays. It includes Hindmata market too.

Mangaldas Market

The market whose footfall rises to a lakh per day, rests it out on Sundays. So, if you’re looking to shop, choose a weekday or Saturday.

Manish Market, Andheri

Sheltered from the sweltering heat, Manish Market comfortably sits a little ahead of DN Nagar metro station and is closed on Sundays.

Manish Market, Fort

Closed on Sundays, Manish Market near CST is famous for home decor, gadgets apparel and more.

Natraj, Malad

Sarees, lehengas, shoes or suits – Natraj Market has it all. Except on Thursdays.

Heera Panna

The market famous for its first copies of watched and bags is unavailable on Sundays.
