SM Street:  

Sweet Meat Street is the busiest street in Kozhikode and derives its name from the times when the street was lined with sweetmeat stalls. One can pick up fancy clothes from the shops lining S M Street and Mavoor Road. There is a wholesale spice market at the Big Bazaar Road. The Comtrust Store off Town Hall Road sells handloom fabrics produced in the factory next door. Calicut is popular for its local handicrafts such as rosewood and buffalo horn carvings, coir products and miniature snake boats. The best places to get these are the supermarket on Manvoor Road and CSI at Mananchira and Big Bazaar at SM Street. 
Try the Court Road spice market if you would like to purchase some spices. 

Plain and printed cottons or calicos available by the roll on SM Road and is a speciality of this town; the word calico is a corruption of the name Calicut. Also try the Comtrust weaving centre in Beypore, 11 kilometres away. If you want to buy some books for your stay then you could go to Touring Book Shop next to the Malabar Palace Hotel on SM Street or try Pai's at Kallai Road.
