Shopping in Ooty is a rewarding experience because the place is specially-bestowed with a number of cultural and natural reserves. This quality enables Ooty to be a forerunner in production or sale of some unique products that have become its speciality and tourists' choice. Here are some of the popular things to buy in Ooty:

  • Chocolates

    These melt-in-the-mouth delicacies continue to be the fantasy of most of us and is a must buy when you head out for shopping in Ooty. You have a huge varietyof flavours to make a pick from (no doubt, you will be confused) such as
    roasted almonds, choco biscuits, mint, lemon, marble and bitter chocolate, among many others, and most of them homemade.
    And they are cheaper than the major brands in the market. Obviously, their taste is something uniquely present only in the ooty chocolate items.

    Try the
    Nilgiris Big Bazar for not just awesome chocolates but also eucalyptus oil, coffee powder, etc.

  • Pickles

    Pickles made here are one of the best things to buy in Ooty. Their authentic taste and hygienic nature makes them highly in demand among tourists.
    Starting from
    lemon, mango and pickles of other vegetables, Ooty pickle-producers also boast of yummy non-vegetarian pickle varieties too such as chicken pickle.

  • Wood Products

    Ooty is abundantly blessed with trees, especially eucalyptus and pine trees which form the heart of the forest cover of the Nilgiri city. The blooming vegetation and wonderful tea gardens all contribute to making Ooty a major producer of wood products.

    Carpentry is a major profession among a major section of the working population. Wood from Ooty wood stores can be availed for constructing homes, for furniture and also as small wood artefacts for decoration purposes.

    Wood Peckers, the wood merchants based at Charing Cross in the city are particularly famous.
