Located near the Ashram Chowk in south Delhi, the Lajpat Nagar Central Market is a typical Indian bazaar featuring a colorful mix of shops, stalls, and food kiosks. The market attracts huge crowds with its diverse choice of goods on offer, and is one of Delhi’s top spots to pick up some exceptional bargains.
Despite the crowds, the shops and stalls at the market are well-organized and divided into broad categories. From clothes shops to stalls selling kitchenware, everything has its place at Lajpat Nagar Central Market – and there’s certainly plenty to choose from. From curtains to shoes and from jewelry to dried fruit, unless it features a sign with a fixed price, everything here is open to bartering and bargaining for.
Food-wise, the market features some fantastic Indian-Chinese eateries, along with plenty of Tibetan momos, and Ram Laddus served with green chutney. Also worth seeking out are the golgappas (savoury waterballs) and the chuski (crushed ice drizzled in thick syrup).
The market is open from 10am until 10pm every day except Monday.
