Delhi is known for its local markets and street shopping culture. However, there are still some unconventional and not explored markets that need and deserve the spotlight. Delhi has much more to offer than just the Sarojini Nagar Market. In case you are also in search of more to explore and shop, you need to head to the relatively famous GK M Block Market. Yes, the spot is famous for being a hang out spot,but, it deserves more credit for its shops that have both – unique as well as basic pieces.
The market was developed in the early 1970s and is a popular spot amongst the foodies of young as well as the old age groups. The market has shops that are branded along with street side vendors that are popular for their ethnic fashion. L’affair is one of the most popular shopping spot for every day ethnic wear at reasonable prices. You can step onto to streets if you are looking for more affordable pieces. Ready-made blouses in a variety of different styles, is something that you will see more often. You can style these versatile pieces with sarees as well as lehengas from your wardrobe.
The vendors also sell some of the most latest and trending clothes at really affordable prices. From crop tops, cardigans, track suits to palazzo pants, trousers and graphic tees, you will definitely find something worth your money here.
The market also has a lot of jewellery to offer. From ethnic to western, junk and experimental, if there is an accessory, you will definitely find a dupe here. Potli bags, purses and clutches are also some of the special products that you should definitely think of buying if you visit.
All the prices are very affordable. However, if you are street shopping, the vendors are probably asking for a lot more money than it’s worth. The bargaining prospects in the market are limited. Don’t expect the bargaining to be as easy as Sarojini. Start by quoting 40% less and then reduce your quote accordingly.
Now that you know the market well, go ahead and shop confidently. You will know exactly what to look for.
