It’s no secret that Delhi is one of my favourite cities. The history, the food, the shopping… I’ve long been saying that I’m going to start a coin jar specifically to save up for annual shopping trips to Delhi. I still owe a second-hand sari seller in Hauz Khas Village a couple of thousand rupees from the last time I was there, which I will pay back one day.
Anyway, here’s an extract from my recent article on Travioor. No doubt some vigilant reader will contact me to tell me how wrong I am, and how their favourite market isn’t included in my list. But Delhi is a huge city with a lot to explore, so here are some good places to start.
The best markets in Delhi for an authentic experience
Delhi is a massive city with food, clothing, entertainment and other sights to suit everybody’s tastes. Foodies and fashionistas will delight in Old and New Delhi’s markets, and even travellers who are less inclined towards the sartorial or culinary will likely find sights, smells and flavours to interest them. Each neighbourhood has its own market, but here are some markets that you simply shouldn’t skip while spending time in Delhi.
