    I love exploring foreign markets and this was one of the largest and best I came across during my four months in India. It provides some excellent photo opportunities with locals selling and buying fresh fruits, flowers, vegetables, fish and general groceries.

    flowers and necklaces

    Stretching along Sayaji Rao Rd the Devaraja Market is one of the most colourful in India and provides excellent subject material for photographers.
    From younsters until old ones, they all make here with millions of jasmine flowers, roses and many others, very skilfully, the beautiful and wonderful smelling flower necklaces for ceremonies, for welcoming you, for hair arrangement before visiting a temple, etc.

    tons of lemon

    Exploring the sprawling, crowded, byzantine Devaraja Market downtown. You're in the real India now; huge baskets of jasmine and margold flowers, raw sugarcane, jaggery, mountains of fruit, snowy mounds of puffed rice, rocks of limestone, essential oils... Surprise ! A young salesman at a perfume stall spoke fluently french, and... yes he could convince us to buying some of his fantastic perfumes.

    potatoes, oignons

    This stall keeper gets my congratulations for his organization. He made a nice patchwork of its oignons and potaties. He certainly must be a perfectionist or an artist.
