Located close to the Jewish Street and the synagogue in Paravur, the Paravur Market finds a place in Muziris Heritage Project. Tuesdays and Saturdays are important days here when this area witnesses an unusual rush of sellers and buyers. On Sundays, the market remains closed. Although it looks like any other market in Kerala, what makes it different is the number of heritage buildings, which find their place amidst the new ones. The Muziris Project has tried to retain the existing market activities on the whole, while increasing some basic facilities in the market. It has further developed the boat jetty, as it is situated close to the backwaters. One can even find the vanchis (small boats) unloading the market supplies, a sight that you could have never seen in any other part of Kerala.
