Not every weekend needs to be an excuse to leave the city, specially when the people of Delhi go out of their way to make you stay! Sundays see the city of Delhi come alive with a host of weekly markets, but these are not your average “hafta bazaars” with street hawkers and loud crowds. Indeed, these are places that define a whole new culture and are slowly becoming popular hipster hangouts. One of the recent additions to this scene is the Sunday Market at Bikaner House, where your lazy Sunday will be infused with some fun and food while you stock up on home and kitchen supplies.
