This North Delhi Market For Cool Fabrics & Decor Is A Shopper's Paradise
Another local market we all need to know about (okay, it's me, only I needed to know about it), is the Ashok Vihar Central Market ( also known as the Deep Market). Full of boutiques, fabric shops, and large bed linen stores, this market is convenient to shop at since you can find pretty much everything here (except for western casuals).
