Dilli Haat Review
This government-run food and crafts bazaar invites artisans from all over the country to sell their wares directly. More than 60 do so at any given time; the vendors rotate every two weeks according to changing themes such as handicrafts, textiles, or Rajasthani goods. Constants include Kashmiri shawls, Lucknavi chikan (white embroidery on pastel cotton), woodwork, pottery, cotton dhurries and simple children's toys from around the country. At the back of the bazaar 25 stalls serve regional food from around the country, a rare opportunity to sample Goan fish curry, Bengali fish in mustard sauce, and Kerala chicken stew outside their states of origin. Best of all, doors are open daily from 10 to 9 (10 to 10 in summer). Admission is Rs. 20.
