Sarojini Nagar market, a familiar name for shopping in Delhi, India, is a shoppers paradise for all the girls and a hub to buy trendy pieces and stuff at an affordable price.
What is Sarojini Nagar Market?
Sarojini Nagar Market is popularly known as a girl’s paradise for shopping. This is an open-air market that has many small shops and stalls selling stuff and is worth exploring, especially if you are a shopaholic just like me. You will find export surplus and rejected pieces by big brands like Zara, H & M, and other brands, due to minor flaws in the design or any other defects. Since they do not have to pay taxes, the stuff here comes at very affordable rates. However, you will find lots of Branded clothes here at throwaway prices. If you are lucky, you will find unique designer pieces that have been designed by the students of fashion designing for their projects. So it can be surprising as you may come across some stunning pieces.

Moreover, after seeing so many Delhi bloggers bragging about this market on social media, I was intrigued to visit this place during my Delhi trip early this year. My first to-do list was to visit Sarojini Nagar market and understand what it is all about.
Being a Mumbai girl, I was always fascinated and curious to shop from Sarojini Nagar market in Delhi as I have heard that this market sells everything at a very reasonable price. Although, Mumbai has good shopping places like Hill Road, Linking Road, Colaba market that sells stylish, trendy, and easy on pocket clothes, accessories, shoe bags, etc. But being a shopaholic Sarojini Nagar was always on my list, and I had to pay a visit while I was in Delhi.
