Experience Bengaluru: KR Market (Chickpet)

Aerial view of the flower market
KR Market.. especially the flower market is one of the offbeat things to do during your stay in Namma Bengaluru. The KR Market has it's own charm while the people all over Bengaluru come in the early hours of the day to purchase items for their business may it be flowers, veggies, fruits or groceries. KR Market is the hub for all such things in Bengaluru.

Why did I end up in KR Market?

Past few weeks we had not done any travel and have been claustrophobic staying within the house during the weekend. So, we thought of an early morning photography plan at KR Market. Though we did not make it that early...Since we went on a Sunday morning, the market wasn't that crowded and no important functions in Bangalore or that would have been a pleasure to observe people carrying out their business. I love watching people from the the first or second floor of the flower market. 

There's nothing much I think of telling about KR Market. It's an experience visiting the busy and main market of any town and KR Market is one of such markets in Bengaluru. Few of my clicks from yesterdays market visit:



Loved the way they've arranged Mogra and Abboli (Firecracker Flower)












Seeing an STD booth after long, they still exist here


Din't know they make it ready to wear :D

  13. Hey Sims, the K R Market seems like a Prettier Better , Cleaner, Spacier , less crowded version of our Dadar Phool Bazaar. The pics look very pretty due to your choicest composition , angle etc. Now , you have inspired me to wake up early in the morning and go clicking at Dadar. Thanks you so much .
