Mutton street or flesh market, is one of the most famous and popular market in Mumbai. This market has an amazing range of goods that hover from teak and rosewood furniture to crockery, glassware, porcelain, paintings, beads, lamps, masks - and anything else you can think of. The busy market is regularly visited by the Mumbaikars as the stuff offered is having various varieties for every product with minimum prices charged against it.
On the sides of the road, small stalls are established which thus makes the road more crowded. Real fun and excitement begins long before you reach the gate. The entire footpath surrounding the market is a shopper's paradise.
If you are looking for curios, furniture, wooden and metal artifacts, clocks, gramophones, coins, Bollywood memorablia, posters, maps etc then that is on Mutton Street.
Shops in Mutton Street vary from the upscale (there's one called Taherally's) to the quirky (Mini Market has old metal signboards for example). But those are only two names, there are about 100 shops there, all small and all interesting.
Almost all of them are closed on Friday, except for a couple of corner shops that sell brass work.
You can enjoy an evening by purchasing stuff from the small stalls outside the market, at affordable prices. As every good salesman knows, it's all a matter of chance and even people who step in casually may go home with a bagful of purchases of good variety and lots of stuff.
