The colourful street bazaars and markets in Kolkata tempt and invite people of all age groups, backgrounds and tastes. For the hardcore shopaholics, here is a brief Kolkata shopping guide. The most popular in the city is the New Market – a Victorian Gothic shopping arcade that houses many stores and stalls. The Nahoum & Sons is an iconic Jewish confectionary that has on sale the most exotic bakes and flavours. The market also sells excellent textiles like sarees. The Gariahat Market is a long stretch that comprises everything from pets to furniture to electronics. The restaurants in this market have some lip-smacking snacks the foodies would love to indulge in. The College Street with several book stores and The Flower Market with its head-reeling colours and fragrances are other shopping places in Kolkata that make for an authentic and unforgettable experience.
