A walk around this iconic open-air market – think stalls overflowing with colourful wares, traditional art, spice boxes, furniture and knick-knacks from across India – is an experience in itself. Built in 1994 and located near the INA Market on Sri Aurobindo Marg, the market is also a must-visit for the regional delicacies it offers – from the sweets of Bengal
, to dumplings from the Northeast, and thalis
(platters) from Uttarakhand. This is a one-stop shop at which to sample cuisine from every Indian state. Spread over six acres (2,428 square meters), the 62 craft stalls here are rotated every 15 days between craftspeople who come from all over India. Don’t forget to admire the pashmina shawls from Kashmir and the traditional wicker furniture from Assam.
