    Fruit & Veg Market: Fruit & Veg Market

    Jaisalmer's fruit and veg market is located just outside the southern walls of the fort (exit out of the fort and turn left). I like walking around markets in foreign countries, especially fruit and veg markets but Jaisalmer's was fairly small in size but the few stalls that make up the market were brimming full of good looking locally grown produce. I think there's another market further round the corner from this one. There's also a few stalls down a side road on the way to the train station.

    Antique shops in havelis: Bit of a tourist trap but nice

    by Willettsworld Written Nov 25, 2007

    If you visit the Nathmal-ki-Haveli or Patwon-ki-Haveli, you'll no doubt be shown round some antiques which are an attraction in their own right. The shops are brimming over with stuff such as small boxes, wooden door frames, wooden panels, camel bone, metallic figures amd paintings. They're just like aladin's cave.

    Ghandhi Chowk: Souvenirs

    by Willettsworld Written Nov 25, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Ghandhi Chowk lies to the west of the old city near the Amar Sagar Gate and is where the city's main market and shopping areas are located. There are plenty of shops in the small streets that sell all kinds of things. I bought a Rajasthan flute player puppet and a notepad book where the pages are made out of hand-made rice paper and are bound with camel leather. Also, bargain down the prices quoted at you!

    Great Rajasthani Crafts

    by jmackey Updated Dec 2, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There are a number of carpet shops in or near the old Haveli sandstone homes and in the Fort that offer a fantastic range of carpets, rugs all in the local Rajasthani style.

    What to buy: Look out for rajasthani mirror work, rugs and blankets.

    Amongst the most beautiful crafts I have ever seen.

    What to pay: A big range of prices. I didn't have confidence in my knowledge so I didn't buy. So do your homework first (I later bought a nice, but lesser quality carpet in Kathmandu).
