Mandawi is not only the largest whole sale market in Kabul, but also in Afghanistan. I assume 70 percent of the consumer goods traders have an agency or their entire business here. The market is normally a whole sale bazaar, but people from around Kabul come to this place to buy their stuff (consumer goods). In this market you can buy anything you need (home appliances to smallest thing, clothes, hardware and food items). Close to the area there is the bird market where you can find almost any kind of pets as well.
