The stretch between Musalamjung Bridge and Puranapul will be brimming with activity on Thursday. Incidentally, for the unversed, Jummerat Bazaar happens to be one of the oldest bazaars in Hyderabad, which goes back to the day of the Nizam. Hence, the place is a treasure trove for those looking for spare parts for vehicles and electronic goods.


However, when the market started in the good old days, people went there to shop for used clothes, utensils, rickshaws, spare parts of bicycles, tools, etc. It was all about buying miscellaneous stuff, reminisces Farooq Taher, principal of a government school in Rein Bazaar.


Jummerat Bazaar means Thursday night market in Urdu. It has been a weekly ritual in older parts of the city, even when there were no malls and shopping complexes. And now, the market is drawing crowds from the new city who want to head to the Musi river banks to see the weekly spectacle and soak in the culture.


However, of late, the bazaar is more about finding plasticware, carpets, mats, tools, vehicle spare parts, second-hand electronic gadgets, mobile phones, chargers, etc. Over 500 vendors set up shop every Thursday, and the shopping begins at the break of dawn at 5 am. The rule of the market is – first come, first basis. Those who come early can find cheap bargains. Of late, most visitors include electricians, plumbers, mechanics, and others who hunt for spare parts of old and rare stuff. One can also find some antiques with some luck.


But the market's main attraction is two stalls where pressure cookers, bed sheets, pillow covers, mattresses, electronic gadgets, and other things are put up for auction.
