Nothing beats deciding to go shopping, getting ready, reaching there only to find that the market is closed! A heart-breaker for sure. So, we've decided to do the legwork and made a handy list of which Delhi markets are closed on what particular day, to help you plan in advance.

Sarojini Nagar

Our favourite haunt on any given day, the place remains closed on Monday. Although, on the other hand, the best day to go is on Tuesday, since all the new stock comes in. If you do end up going on a Monday, you're sure to spot second-hand items for 20 bucks or less! 

LBB Tip: Check out these online brands like Sarojini Nagar stalls!

Closed On: Monday

Nearest Metro Station: Sarojini Nagar Market on the pink line, and INA on the yellow line 

Noida Sector 18

From Desi Vibes to Kaffiiaa to Barista, we are bowled over by Noida’s Sector 18 market. They have a lot of electronic stores and other pop-ups, which were typically closed on Tuesdays but switched to Sundays. 

Closed on: Sunday

Nearest Metro Station: The wave Noida sector 18 on the blue line 

Tibetan Market, Janpath

One of the most fun markets to traverse is the Tibetan Market in Janpath where you'll spot great options for shoes, clothes, and  home decor stuff too, but, unfortunately, you’ll find it shut on Sundays. Some of the restaurants in Connaught Place remain closed in the mornings with only a few opening up in the evenings, so if you have plans, call up the restaurants before visiting. 

Closed on: Sunday

Nearest Metro Station: Janpath on the violet line 

Chandni Chowk

Chandni Chowk is one market where you can find everything, from fabrics and jewellery to stationery, spices and more. We particularly love the book bazaar on Nai Sadak! Also, do check out Chor Bazaar in the morning. Make sure to bargain and avoid going during the second half of the day to avoid the rush. Read everything about Chandni Chowk here.

Closed on: Sunday

Nearest Metro Station: Chandni Chowk, Chawri Bazar on the yellow line.

Khan Market

Khan Market, world's 20th most expensive retail location, is home to one of the finest brands. Everything from OGAAN to Amrapali, the stores are beautifully spread over the lanes of the market. Providing a mix of things. It is the perfect place for shopping after a quick brunch with your friends. Though the restaurants are usually open (yay! More Big Chill for us), you’ll find some of the smaller stalls and stores closed on Sunday. 

Closed on: Sunday

Kamla Nagar

Our favourite when it comes to shopping on tiny student budgets, Kamla Nagar is the place where new restaurants on Hudson lane constantly pop up. For shopping you'll find a lot of store with your shein, sarojini nagar style clothes (obviously catering to the students more)  No point going here on a Monday, though—almost everything is closed. 

Closed on: Monday

GK II M block market, is always Bursting with restaurants, coffee and dessert hotspots, branded clothing stores and home decor stores, it definitely is one of the best markets to get all your needs fulfilled.

Jwala Heri Market
