Mahatma Jyotiba Phule Market

Once known as the Crawford Market, it is located opposite the Mumbai Police headquarters, near Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus. It is more a throwback to a Victorian market than modern day India. The friezes on the exterior walls and the stone fountains in the interior are designed by Lockwood Kipling, father to writer Rudyard Kipling. Gobs of fresh fruit and vegetables are sold here, as well as chocolate and cheese.
