Dilli Haat, INA

One tends to overestimate the prices of goods at Delhi Haat and we don’t blame you because a lot of things here can be expensive. But rejoice, because we assure you that you can find artsy, cotton saris here for less than INR 2,000.

Since the stalls at Dilli Haat keep changing, there's no particular one that we can recommend really. Just make sure that you check out all the stalls and negotiate to get the best price.
