    Night markets of short stints (mostly one to two hours) are found to exist mostly in the landlocked regions of Kottayam and Idukki districts in Kerala. These markets offer sizeable fish trade with arrivals from different coastal states. There exist “identified” traders and possess “dedicated” roads for the timely disposal of the fish in the shortest time possible. The functioning and performance appraisal of the two prominent short stint night markets in Ernakulam district viz., Perumbavoor and Muvattupuzha was studied.
