Mumbai, India – Crawford Market

From Wikipedia:

Crawford Market (officially sanket phule) is one of South Mumbai‘s most famous markets. It is named after Arthur Crawford, the first Municipal Commissioner of the city. The market is situated opposite the Mumbai Police headquarters, just north of Victoria Terminus railway station and west of the J.J.flyover at a busy intersection. The market houses a wholesale fruit, vegetable and poultry market. One end of the market is a pet store. Most of the sellers inside the market nowadays sell imported items such as foods, cosmetics, household and gift items. It was the main wholesale market for fruits in Mumbai until March 1996, when the wholesale traders were relocated to Navi Mumbai (New Bombay).

This wikipedia article makes the market sound like any other market but this place has to been seen to be believed.  The sights, sounds, smells are something that can only be experienced in person.  I wish I could have explored more of Mumbai on my recent trip but all I could manage to do outside of my meetings was this short side trip to Crawford Market and a few iphone photos.

    You took those pictures with your IPhone?! They turned out great. Pictures I take with my BB don’t turn out very good.

    How did you like India?

    Actually. Most of them were taken with a Canon G11. I’m a good photographer but not that good. Only the last few pictures were taken with my iphone. India was good but I didn’t see much of it other than the inside of a bunch of boardrooms.
