Trip to any place is incomplete if you don’t shop, right? Well, Even though Alleppey is not a regular shopper’s delight, the city does offer you various markets to shop from so that you have a wholesome experience. So, if you don’t find the high end shopping malls in abundance, don’t be disappointed as what is available is generally of good quality. And, you will end up buying something, even if it happens to be a small souvenir!

The city is synonymous with Coir products and carpets, which you will find all over the city, in almost every nook and corner, at quite reasonable prices. These are highly demanded by tourists both domestic and international. You can also shop for spices like pepper, cardamom, coconut oil and areca nut. The famous market of the city is Mullakkal. There are also a plethora of shops at Canal Bazaar where you shop for fresh and fragrant spices, which is sure to add a zing to the food you cook!

While you shop at the local markets, do not forget to bargain while shopping in these areas. Remember to buy the locally made items rather than branded ones as the former are unique to this place.
