The colourful bazaars of Udaipur

If you start walking past the Jagdish Temple, into the little lanes, you will come across a wealth of colour: Udaipur's market for fresh vegetables.

Here's a glimpse of the market, from Steve and Wendy Johnston who visited this week.
Many of the stalls are run by women. Right now the market is full of fresh winter veggies.
Indian gooseberry (amla), waiting to be pickled
Chukandar (beetroot); both the tuber as well as the greens are used in Rajasthani curry recipes
There is a community of basket makers in Udaipur, who supply these bamboo baskets
The namkeen shops sell very popular savouries
And the sweet shops are especially enticing!
More namkeen (savoury snacks) and sweets
And what's a bazaar without a couple of cows!!
If you'd like to explore the market, check out the Ghat and Bazaar Walk on the Udaipur Magic website:
