A Beginner's Guide To Sarojini Nagar Market
What Makes It Awesome
Sarojini Nagar market is a practically a loot. I grabbed ripped American Eagle denim for just INR 200! Basic tees and shorts for everyday wear can be stolen for INR 100 only. In my last visit, I also managed to buy cute and comfy bras for INR 170 each which fit perfectly. Printed palazzos, skirts, and pants can all be bought for around INR 250 or less, they are extremely trendy! Along with shopping, the place is a hub for lip-smacking street food like shakarkandi (sweet potatoes), momos, fresh juice and bhutta (corncob). Also, the mall next to the market has outlets like Haldirams, Dominos and Pizza Cones.
What Could Be Better?
It's always crowded! Amongst the hustle-bustle, pick-pocketing is common. So remember to be careful. Also, while there is multi-level parking, you might have to wait a long time for your turn. If you're not cool with that, you can come via metro (the Sarojini Nagar station falls on the pink line. If you prefer the yellow line, get off at INA and take a shared auto).
If you like something, don't let the seller know—just pretend to leave the place. This way you can settle for the price you want! Most importantly, be dressed in the most basic clothing. Sellers tend to quote the price looking at your status. Also, ask for 1/3rd of the quoted price. I've bargained enough to buy t-shirts for INR 100, stylish tops for INR 200, denim for INR 200, shorts for INR 100, any kind of pants or long skirts for INR 250, Palazzo for INR 150, lingerie for INR 200 and shoes for INR 300 or less.
