Main Bazaar is located in the center of the town and has a variety of shops offering everything that Ooty is famous for and also regular essential items... You also can pick up some great winter clothes at reasonable price...

The main bazaar area is crowded and traffic prone. Nothing too great about the place unless you have something specific in mind. The sweatshirt and woollens can be a good bargain though.

All sorts of exotic/unusual/unorthodox produce like tree tomotos, ruharb, nool kool, coloured capsicum, broccoli etc are available here.

The noise, the colour and the smells (some pleasant, some lovely and one or two pretty awful) makes this an essential visit. It is a vibrant, lively place with bustling people, chickens waiting in cages to the slaughtered and porters struggling under sacks and packages. Human life at its best.
