Crawford Market – Famous for wholesale shopping in Mumbai

Crawford Market in Mumbai is officially known as Mahatma Jyotiba Phule Mandai. It is one of the most famous markets of South Mumbai. The building was constructed in the year 1869 by Cowasji Jehangir.

It was originally named after Arthur Crawford who was the first Municipal Commissioner of the city. The market was later renamed to honour Maharashtrian social reformer Mahatma Jotirao Phule. The market is located in the opposite of the Mumbai Police headquarters, just north of Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus railway station.

This was the main wholesale market for fruits in the year 1996 in Mumbai, when the wholesale traders were relocated to Navi Mumbai.
