The Nilgiris are not the first thing you think of when you think commerce. But life must go on in the hills of South India – like everywhere else in the world. And what life would you have if you could not buy every sort of thing that one needs for daily life. That is why local needs demand Udhagamandalam Municipal Market and the supply is both the bounty of nature and the honest hard work of men and women. In the step and ladder formation of this market’s life there is something to be sold: At every step. Trudging up and down you’ll find the wares we call civilization from vegetables to recharge. With pride this market celebrates both age and relevance. In its myriad shades.
