One thing you must know before visiting this market is to never agree to the quoted price.

This one-of-a-kind market puts your negotiating skills to the test; you cannot show your hand. You have to argue that they’re charging extra and maintain your poker face, just like in a game of poker. The most crucial thing to keep in mind when visiting Palika Market is to take your time and consider all of your options before making a purchase. There’s a good chance you’ll discover a better offer at another store. 

The golden rule in markets like Palika is to haggle; if that doesn’t work, try backing away a few steps. There is a good chance the shop owner will lower the price.

You should visit Peshawari Dhaba in Palika Bazaar if you suddenly find yourself craving chicken or mutton. Their korma will most definitely satiate your culinary souls with a curry made with pure desi ghee and dry fruits like cashews.
