New Market situated in the heart of the city,Esplanade. Its a place where all class of people can shop. Roadside small shops are there as well as shopping arcades, Shriram Arcade,Simpark Mall,City Mart,Big Bazar. Girls get mad here ;)
Lots of things to buy like dress,jewellery, footwear, bags, household items,food items. One can find everything here.
Need to bargain somewhere.

Almost any item that a girl/lady can possibly dream of is available at this market. Prices of the items will largely be determined by one's bargaining skills.Needless to say, for a guy like me one can't help but just only frown at the infinite choices(cheap but worth it) that the fairer gender has access to in this market.

This venerable Kolkata institution is also one that evokes a lot of nostalgia in NRIs such as myself and is a great place to find unexpected little treasures and great bargains if you know where to look and how to haggle. My recommendation would be to go with a local if you do not wanted to be ridiculously cheated as almost nothing comes with a price tag and on the spot verbal quotes are given by the shopkeepers or their assistants depending on their lightening fast assessment of the depths of your pockets or gullibility.
However I still choose to negotiate its warren of passages and narrow corridors not to mention the constant chant of the shopkeepers to step into their respective cubes to find various items that are either not available in the multiple glitzy malls that have mushroomed across the city and/or are hugely overpriced at those places.
During my last 2 visits I was especially impressed by the quality and variety of merchandise at the haberdashery stores that are located in New New Market ie the section that was rebuilt after a part of the market was destroyed in a fire a few decades ago.
I almost can’t wait to go back to stock up on all kinds of laces, appliqués, ribbons, embroidered panels and other goodies.
Of course there are lots of other sections that specialize in antiques and handicrafts, gold, silver and stone jewelry, costume jewelry and especially colorful glass bangles, food, cheese and confection, clothes and unstitched dress materials, shoes and leather goods and near the front entrances on Lindsay streets a row of florists specializing in some of the most magnificent and breathtaking bouquets and floral decorations that I have ever seen. Definitely worth checking out this pretty, pulsating if somewhat overwhelming commercial heart of colonial and contemporary Kolkata.

You can find all kind of stuff- household items, clothes, shoes, street food name it. This is the place to look for Shantiniketan leather bags and purses. An interesting spot to spend your day with locals and practise your bargaining skill.
