Chandni Chowk

A family marketing haven established about 300 years ago, Chandni Chowk is where the charm of Old Delhi still carries on, and it’s probably the most famous market in Delhi. It’s super crowded on most days, so there’s no way to really avoid that.

It’s much coveted for bridal stores and street food, but there’s a lot more this area has to offer—wholesale stationery items at Chawri Bazar, Sunday book market at Daryaganj, stunning silver jewellery at Dariba Kalan, lights for homes at Bhagirath Palace, cameras and accessories at Kucha Choudhary Market, spectacles and frames at Ballimaran, lace & latkans at Kinari Bazar, and lots, lots more!

Sarojini Nagar

Ask any non-Delhi girl what she plans to do on her next visit to the capital, and the first words that come out of her mouth, without fail, are ‘Go shopping at Sarojini !’. And with good reason too, because nowhere {up until now at least} in the entire country, have we found a market where you can buy an entirely new wardrobe for less than INR 3,000!

Tip: If you get the chance, plan your visit on an early weekday morning, when the crowds are thin and shopkeepers are desperate to make their first sale—so you’ll get a great bargain.

Timings: 10.00am to 9pm everyday(Except Monday).

Nearest Metro Station: INA Metro Station.

Lajpat Nagar

Lajpat Nagar has a lot to offer on the reasonable shopping front, and there’s no doubt that this is one of the more famous markets in Delhi. We especially recommend going here for all your textile needs. There’s no shortage of shops with multiple floors dedicated to fabric of every kind—silk, satin, cotton, chiffon, georgette, and more. Then there’s Salwar Lane where you can find a massive range of pre-stitched, semi-stitched, and unstitched salwar suits great for everyday wear, or mass gifting during family weddings.

A few of our favourites: Ghoonghat Dupatta for dupattas and stoles, KC Creations and Ramjisons for a giant range of fabrics, and Dolma Aunty Momos for yummy momo.

Tip: Best to rely on metro services if you’re going over the weekend, when getting a parking spot or an auto back home can become a nightmare.

Others: Amar Colony to score beautiful furniture pieces at a bargain.
