There is nothing quite like the sensory experience of a trip to a market. The sights, sounds and smells assault the senses in a way far removed from the comfort of our homes, and it is where visitors are most likely to get a glimpse into how the locals live and interact in everyday life. There are a number of local markets in Dimapur where you can find great local produce, authentic food, and enjoy soaking up the atmosphere of laidback Naga life. Which market is best for you depends on which day of the week and what exactly it is you want to find.
Fridays are hectic at 4th Mile (Opposite Central Jail) where shoppers from near and far come to stock up for the weekend. Assorted vegetables and fruits, meats, fishes and live poultry, animal feed, kitchen commodities like salt, sugar, pulses, rice, and a wide range of second-hand clothing, this market has it all. Another attraction at 4th Mile bazaar is the street food- piping hot jalebis, samosas, puris and local delights like galho, local pork sausages. The street foods sell out like hot cakes.
Business at the local markets in Dimapur begin as early as 5 in the morning and go on until 6 or 7 in the evening. With the majority of locals preferring the ‘farm to table’ approach to food, the daily local markets are serious business. These markets serve not only as a way for people to purchase locally grown produce but also a chance for them to connect with others within their communities.
