Shopping in Delhi, India

While Delhi has all types of markets in all areas of the city, some of the more popular ones include Sarojini Nagar, Khan market, M and N-block markets and the Meena Bazaar.

Shopping, Delhi, India

Sarojini Nagar

The Sarojini Nagar market, located in southern Delhi, opens around 11:00 in the morning and gets busy pretty quickly. While a variety of items can be found here, such as trinkets, household supplies, and western clothing, the real draw is finding great deals on traditional Indian clothing.

There are a variety of shops selling womens saris, Punjabi suits (salwar kameez), or single piece items, such as kurtas, salwars, and dupattas. There are also mens and womens tailors for those who wish to have a suit made or make a quick alteration (such as adding sleeves to a kurta).

Khan Market

The Khan market, located in central Delhi, is a more up-scale shopping area selling English-language books, kitchenware, stationary, shoes, accessories, and plenty of western and Indian clothing. The second floor of the very popular Fabindia has a huge selection of well-made Indian clothing.

While there are several Indian restaurants at the Khan market, there is also a McDonald’s (near the Crocs store) and a Subway for those with a hankering for some western fast-food. This market also has two grocery stores selling international food items, such as granola bars and pancake mix.

M-Block and N-Block Markets

The M-block market, located in Greater Kailash 1, and the N-block market located in Greater Kailash 2 are somewhat similar to the Khan Market. They are tailored to middle and upper-class shoppers with nice restaurants and boutique stores.

The larger M-block market has a variety of eateries, jewelers, cosmetics, and more. Clothing stores there include Esprit and Benetton. The smaller N-block market has English-language books, FabIndia, and several other clothing and home furnishing stores.

Meena Bazaar

This market has narrow walkways and can be a bit hectic to peruse, but it is in a prime location by the Red Fort and Jama Masjid mosque, two of Delhiā€™s top sites. The market has a hodge-podge of items, even fireworks can be purchased here. There is also a warehouse-style building near the main road across from the mosque selling goods from Tibetan refugees, such as blankets, shawls, sweaters, and bags.
