May 18, 2020

Markets like Law Garden never disappoints you. So, make a shopping list and explore the market and unravel all the hidden gems in the market.

The Law Garden has been developed as an attractive destination to view, enjoy, and purchase the grand vibrant, precious, and authentic offerings of the city. Providing various styles with a hint of modern touch and fashion to traditional works as per the demand from contemporary society this place has rich ethnic fashion sensibilities of the Gujarati community. Apart from the embroidered wall hangings, costume jewelry, the main highlight is the Chaniya Choli that is worn during the Navaratri dance festival.

By day, this area is famous for a law college and Law Garden. Later in the evening, the wall adjacent to the law garden transmogrifies into a busy marketplace. It is believed that some opulent families had settled down in this area a few decades back and the area around the garden was barely used back then. Utilising the right set of circumstances, purveyors from other areas moved in here to set up their temporary shops. History apart, the most prominent factor that sets apart the Law Garden market is its sole cynosure on selling traditional apparel made by artisans such as local weavers and quilters from all over Gujarat. This is not just a market for tourists who visit Gujarat, it is a handicraft hub to which even the locals flock frequently to purchase unique pieces of traditional items. Certain design segments such as Rabari works, applique embroidery, patchwork, animal monogram, traditional mirror work, and tie & dye prints are alluring, the ultimate apparel is unique in its own aspect and it is hard to find two pairs that are an exact replica. This place has become the hub to encourage and promote traditional master artisans and craftsmen from across the state.

Tip: Just like any other flea markets in Ahmedabad, the final price on any item would depend upon your bargaining skills. The more you bargain, the better deal you will receive. The stock replenishes every day, so the item you like today might not be available again some other day. There are no fitting rooms so you have to absolutely be sure of the size before purchasing and you get what is in the display, you can’t expect any stock to be available in multiple sizes or shades.
