Located near Sarojini Nagar Bus Depot on AK Roy Marg is the Matka Market. It's got a variety of home decor items all made out of clay. Even if you’re not buying anything (you’d be tempted to though), just walking through the market and watching artisans at work here is a delight.
Get Jutti-Shaped Gamlas & Earthen Lamps From This Matka Market
What Makes It Awesome
The market is a whole lane of potters who live on this street (reason why it’s open till 3 am) and sell different items like blue Jaipuri pots and vases, diyas, terracotta lamps and black Manipuri matkas too.
It’s the kind of place where you can unearth a gem at every other stall. We found colourful ceramic cup gamlas with black carvings of birds, zebras and even Chota Bheem that could be the perfect green decor for your room. But one of the most unique things we found here would have to be the jutti and other shoe-shaped gamlas that can add just the bit of quirk to your balcony. Earthen hanging pots (INR 150), ceramic wind chimes with pretty motifs (INR 250), beautifully hand-painted idols of gods are just some other things we found at this market.
Definitely make a trip here during Diwali. You’ll find a galore of decorated diya platters (INR 50), the simple clay ones (12 for INR 10), rows of colourful candles, rangoli colour sets (INR 100) and everything you’d need ahead of the festive season.
