Flea markets are a foreign concept to Bangalore as there are numerous ‘regular’ outdoor markets in which haggling is the word of the minute.
There are, however, several street markets selling a variety of knick-knacks. Great shopping streets include:
- Avenue Road: Discover your bargaining skills here, while you negotiate for anything and everything, including clothes and consumer durables.
- Shivajinagar Area: A mish-mash mixture of treasures, from kitchenware to new and used furniture. Again, bargain, bargain, bargain!
- Chikpet: A few fixed price signs though bargaining is still the order of the day in this bustling marketplace. Some quality clothes to be found, alongside electronics and books.
