It is a crowded place but the goods are really affordable.

Dilli Haat (Pitampura)[edit]

Dilli Haat at Pitampura, north-west Delhi, near the TV Tower, is the second of its kind project of Delhi Tourism and Transport Development Corporation. The success of the Dilli Haat at the INA market encouraged the DITDC to open another, bigger, and better Dilli Haat, at Pitampura.
The Pitampura Haat, like its progenitor at the INA market, will showcase tribal art and craft, culture, cuisine, music, as well as the essence of street culture. The gateway to the Haat will serve as a street plaza. Vendors selling everything from paper toys and balloons to popcorn will get space on the walkway, giving a feel of Delhi’s street culture.
There is to be a spice court that will allow shoppers to pick up authentic spices. Right next to it is the art court comprising an exhibition and art gallery space. The craft shops have been organized in two blocks along a central axis. At the rear of the Haat there is an amphitheater and food court, but to reach the food court you will have to walk through the craft stores. It is a clever way of attracting people to buy as these food stalls attract the maximum crowd.
