About Lal Bazar

Established in the year 1956 as an open market for the people of Gangtok to display all their produces, Lal Bazaar has evolved over the years as a shopping complex. Renamed as Kanchenjunga Shopping Complex, this market is where you will find many diverse items. Located quite close to MG Marg, the vegetable market at Lal Bazaar is very popular among the residents of the city. You get good quality, fresh vegetables and fruits here. Sunday is the day when the market comes alive. People from all parts of the city come here, and it is quite evident that they come from different ethnic backgrounds. The colorful dresses and diverse languages spoken make Lal Bazaar a perfect testament for India’s ‘Unity in Diversity.' Lal Bazaar offers a good selection of cottage cheese, organic vegetables, Alpine cheese and churpi, a cheese made out of yak’s milk. Beautiful pottery, prayer flags, traditional Nepalese knives and baskets made out of bamboo and cane are a few of the other items for sale at this market.
