You may have to stop for a breath amongst the crowded labyrinth of stalls that is Kolkata’s famous New Market. Popular for its cheap and affordable prices, with over 2500 stores this is the only organised street market in India. Buy cotton saris, Bankura clay horses, brassware, leather bags, silk from Murshidabad, khadi, wigs, poultry, cheeses, nuts, and a lot more. And if you are lost in the maze of shops here, don’t fret. Just hire help in form of a guide and find what you are looking for.
