Chennai – Visit to the Koyambedu

Koyambedu is fresh vegetable & flower market – An amazing riot of colours.

When the city sleeps, fresh vegetables, fruits and flowers are unloaded and readied for sale in Koyambedu. With an area covering more than six football fields, the Koyambedu Vegetable and Flower market could possibly be the biggest such market in Asia. Made up of three distinct sections — the flower market, fruit market and vegetable market – it deals in vast quantities of perishable goods, all restocked regularly by enormous trucks that drive in and out all through the night. An early morning experience is must to see the riot of colours, energy and just the sheer scale of it all.
