Add Six Yards Of Elegance To Your Wardrobe From This 400-Year-Old Market

Style Hunter 21 Oct 2020


Hola, shopaholics! Amidst the big IT firms and a plethora of happening bars, there’s a little something that stands out in this city. You guys know how much we love shopping, and this time we’re here to tell you about an age-old market that’s known for its gorgeous sarees, so read on fellas!

Shopping Is Always A Good Idea | Chickpet Market, literally translating to ‘small city’, is lined with saree shops that will have you baffled for choice! While silk is the quintessential backbone here, you’ll also find cottons, crepes, tussars & whatnot. We recommend checking out Rukmini Hall for an extensive collection of Kanjivarams. Whether there’s a wedding on the cards, a special occasion coming up or even just for daily wear, the locals swear by this hub since it’s a massive one-stop destination for your saree shopping haul.  It is a crowded and commercial market, so make sure you take some time out and explore this market with your bestie.

Apart from sarees, you’ll find yourself in a labyrinth of stores that sell household supplies & decor, kitchen wares, musical instruments & antiques plucked from nooks and corners of India. The best part? *drum roll* Your wallet won’t even make you feel guilty!  Make sure to scoop out enough time from your schedule when visiting, ‘cause trust us, you don’t wanna repent later! 

So peeps, don’t wait any longer and drop by Chickpet with your bestie for a wholesome shopping experience!
