Markets of Bandra

  • Hill Road Mumbai

This walk aims to explore bandra’s colourful history through the lens of its markets. It also aims for a dialogue on how different communities interact and create and break boundaries over food and ingredients. This walk will cover old catholic bakeries that give bandra it’s daily bread. The meat markets where everything, including your caste is on display. The sanitised urban supermarket, the fisherwomen who hawk their wares along an old village bylane, the gent who used to own a barbecue, where neighbours and strangers could buy food and stop for a chat, the lady who cooks at her doorstep, and feeds the migrant guards as well as migrant white collar worker. This is bandra, through smell, sound, sight and the people of its markets.
