Diversity of Sunday bazaar... By Misha

13 December, 2013

The word bazaar came into use in the early 1580s from the Italian word bazaara. As the world progressed, bazaars evolved with it, improving, expanding and inviting millions of buyers and sellers. Marketplaces also serve to highlight the culture of many countries. For some people, the bazaar is a strong motivation for living in a metropolitan city such as Karachi. The day and night shopping craze has led to Karachi being called the city of lights.

Amongst all the glittering bazaars of the city, stands the Sunday bazaar - the cheapest yet the elitist of all with its unparalleled charm and attraction for shopaholics. Sunday bazaar holds a different kind of fascination; it is a platform where different people come together for one objective: shopping at the lowest price. Hundreds of sellers come to the plains of DHA Phase 8 to set up their stalls. A long wait in the queue is predictable during rush hours between 12 and 4pm. Hundreds of buyers stream into this incredible bazaar where a wide, diverse range of items is available. From shoes, clothes, bags, books and flowers to utensils, everything is easily available in the same place. This showcases the diversity of the buyers. People come here from different economic backgrounds to shop.

Sunday bazaar is the biggest supermarket in Karachi, covering 30 acres of land with 2,500 stalls set up every Sunday. The bazaar not only includes trading products but it also welcomes customers with the traditional food court. It is an attraction for a large number of people where they can dine on inexpensive delicious food, ranging from famous biryani to gol gappay, burgers, all kinds of juices and so much more. The crowds at Sunday bazaar make the place even more interesting as you find people from the mediocre social strata to loaded foreigners. Everybody waits for this day eagerly, week after week.
