I believe that you guys must be ready with your shopping list. In this article, I would recommend you to explore these five most popular markets in Delhi in this festive season.
Sadar Bazar market in old Delhi justifies the meaning of “everything under the one roof”. That means you can get almost everything in this market. Either we talk about clothes, jewellery, decorative items, kitchen appliances and much more is available at a very reasonable price. But keep in mind that this market is very congested.
There are different sub-markets available in Sadar Bazar for all your requirements. These sub-markets are product specified. You can visit:
- Swadeshi Market– Famous for artificial jewellery, toys, gift items.
- Matke Wali Gali– Famous for cosmetics and beauty products.
- Deputy Ganj– Famous for household utensils and bangles.
- 12 Tooti Chowk– Famous for gold and diamond jewellers.
Note: Recently, I visited Sadar Bazar and noticed that there were no safety measures taken in the market for COVID. The market was over-crowded hence nobody was maintaining social distancing. So, be cautious while going for shopping in Sadar Bazar.
Surrounded by the historical monuments, Chandani chowk market is the most magnificent market in Delhi. This market surely lightens up your eyes with joy. Recently it went through the redevelopment plan of Delhi Govt which has enhanced its beauty to the next level.
Chandani Chowk market is for each class of people. Here you will find small street vendors to big showrooms. So, anyone can shop here according to their budget.
Similar to Sadar Bazar, Chandani Chowk also have some sub-markets. Let’s look at those sub-markets:
- Bhagirath Palace– Famous for electronics items, decorative lights.
- Nai Sadak– Famous for books, lehengas and sarees.
- Balli Maran– Famous for footwears, spectacles and bangles.
- Paranthe Wali Gali– Famous for different varieties of Paranthas.
- Kinari Bazar– Famous for designer lases and latkans etc.
- Khari Baori– Famous for a wide variety of spices.
- Chawri Bazar– Famous for wedding cards.
- Krishna Market– Famous for ladies suits, salwar kameez and fabric.
Moreover, Chandani Chowk is a place where you can enjoy a tremendous variety of vegetarian and non-vegetarian delicious food along with your shopping.
Note: It is quite hard to find parking space for the vehicles. So, I would recommend going through the metro or any public transport. Along with that do take care of precautionary measures as it is also a crowded market.
Sarojini Nagar Market
Named after the freedom fighter Sarojini Naidu, this market is located in the South-West district of Delhi. Sarojini Nagar market is the centre of attraction for the young generation. This market is majorly famous for a large variety of clothes of many national and international brands.
The branded clothes which have a slight manufacturing defect are also sold at reasonable prices in this market. The interesting thing about this market that if you are a bargain freak then this your place. Here you can showcase your talent of bargaining as this market is also known as the bargain market.
Lajpat Nagar Market
This market is named in honour of the freedom fighter Lala Lajpat Rai. Lajpat Nagar market is another attractive market in Delhi which is also known as the central market. This market is known for its trending fashion clothes and other stuff.
If I talk about my experience of this market, this is quite an expensive one. Although there are pocket-friendly shops, the majority goes with the branded showrooms.
There is also a shop here that attracts every momos lover, that is Dolma Aunty Momos. Whenever you visit Lajpat Nagar market, do not forget to try dolma aunty’s momos.
If it is called Mini Chandni Chowk, it will not be wrong. It is one of the famous markets of East Delhi. Either you are looking stuff for festivals or weddings, this market promises a wide variety of clothes, jewellery, footwear, cosmetics and much more.
Another crowded market of Delhi which is also the home of famous sweet shops of East Delhi- Hira Sweets and Shyaam Lassi Wala. You can quell your hunger with lots of food options which are available in this market.
I believe that this list of the five most popular markets in Delhi will help you to fulfil all your shopping requirements. In addition to this, all these markets are well connected with Delhi Metro, buses and other public transports. It won’t be difficult to reach any of the markets in Delhi.
So, prepare your shopping list and ready to explore these markets. Do not forget to take all the safety measures during COVID-19 pandemic. Be safe and keep others safe too.
