General Information About Spice Market Tour - LALBAG
The Lalbaug area is the heart of the textile mill industry which flourished in Mumbai from the mid-1800’s to the late 1900’s. This walk provides a cultural introduction to the area and its people. We will explore the religious, economic, political and social fabric of this multi-cultural area which is home to Marathi-speaking Hindus as well as small communities of Parsis and Muslims.
Apart from a colourful spice market, there is a bustling vegetable market here, a farsan (fried snack) market called ChivdaGalli, and a busy fish market. Wedding and religious paraphranelia, shops selling daily needs items, kitchen utensils and provisions, all make for an interesting introduction to local cuisine and culture.
