Delhi Shopping Markets

From palazzos to pots; from handicrafts to hippy clothing; from books to brassware –there is no such commodity that Delhi doesn’t have to offer you. And that too at reasonable rates! Didn’t we just describe a shopaholic’s paradise? Read on, it gets better!

Delhi is a place of splendid architecture, mouth-watering food, and of course, amazing shopping! The street markets are always bustling with people and vendors and there is never a dull day. We compiled a list of all the markets that are a must-go in Delhi if you’re in search for, well, pretty much anything.

  1. Janpath Market: This happens to be one of the liveliest markets of Delhi and has vendors that sell everything under the sun, be it clothing, handicrafts, or jewelry.

Location: Janpath, just off Cannaught Place.



2. Paharganj: It is one of the most chaotic markets and predominantly consists of wholesellers, so it is easy to get unique stuff at cheaper rates.

Location: Paharganj Main Bazaar, opposite New Delhi Railway Station



3. Dilli Haat: This large and beautiful market has deliberately been made to look like a traditional weekly village market, called a ‘haat’. The place has a great vibe with its thatched roof stalls, music, handicrafts and more.

Location: Opposite INA market, South Delhi.



4. Sarojini Nagar: Do I even need to say anything else? You’ll find all the designer wear and fashion accessories at cheap rates here, and thus this is a pretty crowded market at all times.

Location: Near Safdarjung airport, South Delhi



5. Khan Market: This cute and quaint little market is almost 8 decades old. While you might not be able to bargain too much here, but it has got some great book stores, branded outlets, and outdoor facing cafes.

Location: Humayun Road, New Delhi



6. Chandni Chowk: I don’t know about China, but Chandni Chowk is definitely worth its hype. It will give you the true experience of purani with its narrow alleyways, and segregated bazaars for everything. It is also one of the most famous places to try out the Delhi street food.

Location: Old Delhi

Location: Asaf Ali Road to Netaji Subhash Marg, Old Delhi



9. Chor Bazaar: The list would’ve been incomplete without mentioning Chor Bazaar, right? You get literally everything here at second hand, cheap rates. But it’s advisable to be careful when you’re in here.

Location: Near Jama Masjid, Old Delhi


10. Karol Bagh: One of the oldest markets of Delhi, it is famous for its bridal wear and traditional Indian wear.
