One of Delhi’s most frequented markets for daily essentials or those special Saturday night parties at a shoestring budget, Sarojini Nagar is a shopper’s paradise! The fascinating world where ‘style for everyone’ isn’t just an illusion.

The wish of shopping more for less, just came true!

If you are the kinds who look for quality over quantity, but don’t really want to set aside a major chunk of your monthly budget for it, Sarojini Nagar is the place for you – where quantity and quality go hand in hand.

Now before you go searching for ‘things to buy’ at the market, stop! Let me list them down for you:

1. Branded clothes for less

Who wants to go to those big time brand stores when you can find their look-a-likes here. The market is also known to offer export surplus from major brands at affordable costs.

  • Find the latest trends – patterns, fits, shoes, etc; just about everything you need to get fitted out from head to toe.
  • Footwear of all kinds – from the most basic flats, to heels to kolhapuri chappals, you’re going to find some really competitive variety and prices here.
  • Scarves, stoles and mufflers, irrespective of the weather are up for grabs through the year.

2. Treasure trouve

3. Street food

A treat for your taste buds, the market has a lot to offer – from chaats, golgappas, kulfis, shakes to fresh juice, and even bakeries, you’ll find just about everything here.

But before you book a cab and get to the place, here’s a friendly advice – brush up your bargaining skills!

Let your guard down and haggle ruthlessly, because just about every cost works here. If you think haggling isn’t your cup of tea, drag a friend along because if you’re not coming back with bags full at an unbelievably low cost, there’s no point making the effort of going there.

Just FYI, the market is closed on Mondays and super packed on weekends; you might want to take a day off from work if you really don’t want to be pushed around. Believe me when I say this, Sarojini Nagar is the one flea market you won’t regret visiting, ditching work.

Happy shopping!
