Hot on the heels of the rumoured shutdown of our beloved Sarojini Nagar Market (which <delightful squeal> is not true!!), we couldn’t stop but remember the good ol’ times spent at this legendary shopping haven!
Here, we pay a tribute to the Top 5 best Addas in Delhi for us street shopping junkies!
5. Dilli Haat
Although we now have 3 dilli haats in Delhi – INA, Pitampura & Janakpuri but the oldest one in INA still wins hands down. If you want to street shop but still want to stand out & apart from the crowd, this is your go-to place! From ethnic glam from various states to boho-chic separates, you’ll find all the stuff to satisfy your nomadic soul!
4. Lajpat Nagar
Another South Delhi jewel to satiate your street shopping cravings! Go to this one for those Lajpat only western wear boutiques, lingerie trysts to your wedding costume jewellery, footwear fetish and not to forget good old Indian chic salwaar suits! But don’t leave this place before trying the delectable Ram Laddoo chat!
Can your college life ever be complete without Janpath shopping experience? Or can your Janpath shopping ever be complete without cold coffee & savouries at Depaul’s? I would say you don’t belong to Delhi-NCR college gang if you’ve not shopped at Janpath! So, what if everyone in your college had exactly the same stuff? After all, we all shopped together and begrudgingly ended up picking up similar stuff – with you begging your friends to at least take a different colour! 😛 But, then the whole idea was how to style these separates in your signature style and still look unique! Oh! how I miss-miss Janpath & those carefree days!
2. Sarojini Nagar
So if Janpath invokes nostalgia, this place is what folklores are made of! Sarojini yes! Where to start? Yes, that again is a million dollar question when you reach this chaotic shopper’s paradise! And, you start the moment you reach there! All the cute stuff you’ve been dreaming of, you get right there in front you and that too at unbelievable prices! And, then you can always bargain nonchalantly appearing to not even want the dress you’ve been lusting after forever! The BIG NEWS? Our fav destination in not shutting down, whatever social media hoax may have been doing the rounds! Yay!
P.S. Don’t miss Khandani Pakode wala for anything if you happen to go SN Market!
1. M-Block Market, Greater Kailash-I
The numero uno spot deservedly so belongs to this one! It is the best, the best and the best! I don’t quite understand why the biggie stores exist only in that market coz it has been totally usurped by the patri wallas! This is the place for superchic and the trendiest of stuff! The clothes will look like you’ve purchased from high-end stores and will even carry Mango, Zara, Vero, Topshop labels to top it all! Style mantra? Buy clothes from here and wear everywhere but GK-I! Coz, everyone here will know where you got this cool outfit from! 😛 And, never, never leave this place before delectable chaat at Prince Paanwala and those gorgeous momos n cold coffee at Brown Sugar! Happy Shopping! 🙂
