Now that you already have the list of things you’d like to pick up from Kochi, you must be wondering the best places to get your hands on them. Don't you worry, the following list of shopping places will definitely please you with the wide variety of things that you can find here. Read on:

  • Bazaar Road
    It is a two kilometre stretch of road running from Fort Kochi to Mattancherry where you will find local commodities of the state. Green cardamom, Pepper, Cinnamon, brown cardamom, cloves, bay leaf are sold in the shops here. Do pick up only the well-sealed packets rather than open spices as the vacuum packed spices will remain fresh longer. There are many shops along Bazaar Road, selling spices, pulses etc and is much cheaper to buy here than in Jew Town

  • M G Road
    Mahatma Gandhi Road, shortened as MG road in Kochi is a wonderful place where you can shop for stuffs ranging from clothes to cosmetics to knick-knacks. Popular items that usually fascinate tourists like handicrafts, spices and nuts are found here. Kairali Emporium at M G Road is one of the best places to shop for crafts, clothes and artefacts which are all typical to Kerala. Besides, that you can pick up Kathakali masks, that makes a wonderful souvenir from here. Large retail showrooms like Seematti, Jayalakshmi Silks and Chennai Silks will give you the taste of fashion for finest quality sarees and other exquisite range of clothes and fabrics.

Here you will find a variety of clothes and spices. From jewellery to stationary goods you will find all kind of things in this market. The list is unending if we start mentioning as to what all you can find here. Its better when you see it for yourself.

  • Marine Drive
    Marine drive is another awesome place for shopping in Kochi. Shopping along the picturesque scenery of the Marine Drive is another great experience. From readymade cotton garments to cute sandals and little food stalls Marine Drive has it all.

Apart from these you can check out Jewel Junction for best quality Kerala’s traditional jewellery. At Jew town you will find various kinds of curios and antiques that you can go and check out. Shopping in this city will definitely be a memorable experience for you.
