Do carry extra bags so that you can carry the stuff around with ease.

Sarojini Nagar market


This name just had to be on the list, and I am sure you must have heard of it (unless you are living under a rock!). Sarojini nagar is most popular among girls who come here to buy trendy and bohemian clothes at very affordable prices. The only 2 things you need to shop here are some cash (not too much), and good bargaining skills. One can also find amazing and chunky jewellery along with stylish footwear at amazing prices. You can come here on all days except Mondays.

Khari Baoli


Khari Baoli is a wholesale spice market located in the heart of the city. Well technically, this market is located on the street called Khari Baoli and this market started around the 17th century and has been immensely popular ever since. You can find an amazing variety of spices and aromas here and the prices are very fair as well. People visit this market to purchase dry fruits and other flavor full herbs. It remains closed on Sundays and is usually very crowded during the weekdays as well. But the aromatic air might just make you forget the crowd! If you love cooking, then this place is for you!

Dilli Haat


This bazaar is run by the DTTDC department and is widely popular for its vibrant atmosphere. Sometimes during the evenings, performances are held and the air is filled with music and festivity.
