I bought my cookware here at the Haldwani Market. The shops are really small. Most have a bench where the customer is expected to sit. The customer describes to the shop keeper what the are looking for. The shop keeper or his helper then go and get the items the customer is seeking.
This market is quite large and offers everything from bedding, to fresh fruits and vegetables. This vegetable cart rolled by while we were purchasing our cookware. The shopkeeper as well as some customers bought some vegetables.
