Devaraja Market is the right place if you want to get the local flavor of everyday Mysore life. With 100 years of existential history to boast of this market is a good example of a South Indian bazaar. Noisy, vibrant, a bit chaotic, yet colorful at the same time. Located along the Sayyaji Rao Road, Devaraja Market north entrance is opposite the Chikka Gadiyara next to KR Circle while the southern entrance opens on to the Dhanvantari Road.
The northern side is generally filled with stalls selling fruits and the southern portion specializes in selling vegetables. The middle section contains local flower stalls interspersed with a mix of shops selling incense, traditional household items, banana leaves, beatle vine, seeds and souvenirs. Containing three aisles along its length, Devaraja Market with 800 traders doing brisk business throughout the day is normally jam packed.
