Kothapet and Gaddiannaram fruit market have a long-standing relationship for over three decades. Gaddiannaram Agricultural Market which is the largest market in Asia is a landmark for Chaitanyapuri and Kothapet areas. The market is now moving to Koheda on the outskirts. The state cabinet on the 19th of this month has decided to build a super specialty hospital at the Gaddiannaram market site. 


Kothapet which used to be the outskirts area previously has become one of the busiest areas in the city. Five hundred lorries come to the market every day during the mango and sugarcane seasons. vehicles line on the roads for kilometers on either side of the market. The YSR government had earlier decided to allot 100 acres of land for setting up a market at Koheda near the Outer Ring Road to avoid traffic congestion and make it accessible to farmers who bring goods from the districts.


After the formation of Telangana, the TRS government has allotted an additional 78 acres of land and planned to set up a market on a total of 178 acres. The government has also set up temporary sheds to host the mango season in the summer of 2020 in Koheda itself. However, as the sheds were demolished due to the torrential downpour, the vendors started buying and selling them once again in Gaddiannaram.  However, with the latest approval from the Cabinet, the market is likely to move soon.


About two thousand families depend on the Gaddiannaram fruit market for their livelihood. There are 252 commission agents, 300 licensed porters, 300 clerks, and about 1,500 laborers working in the market every day. An additional five hundred laborers work during the season. Gaddiannaram Fruit Market sells fruits from Telugu states as well as Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Maharashtra, Delhi, Punjab, Haryana, and other states. From here, the fruits are exported to various states of the country as well as abroad. It is noteworthy that around Rs 10-12 crore worth of fruits are traded in the market every day and the market receives Rs 10 lakh daily in the form of fees.
