Designed to invoke the ambience of a traditional village fair, Dilli Haat is every shopper's paradise and a foodie's haven. There are three Delhi Haats in Delhi: Pitampura, Janakpuri and INA, with INA being the most popular one. Delhi Haat INA is located in the commercial centre of South Delhi, bang opposite the INA Market. Run by Delhi Tourism and Transportation Development Corporation (DTTDC), the market offers a plethora of traditional crafts and handloom products including rosewood and sandalwood carvings, embellished camel hide footwear, sophisticated fabric and drapery, gems, beads, brassware, metal crafts, and silk and wool fabrics, copperware, chandeliers, cane & jute products etc. In addition to this, the market has savoury lip-smacking food cuisines from varied parts of India- momos from Nepal, Bamboos hot chicken from Nagaland, Kahwa & Kebabs from Jammu, Pooranpoli from Maharastra etc.
Dilli Haat is a forum to bring together rural art and folk culture; it has an open-air theatre where cultural events are performed on a daily basis. Above all, it is a fascinating panorama of art, craft and culture and a perfect spot to capture all those candid pictures you always wanted.
Sprawling over a vast 6 acres of land, the area was initially retrieved as part of a reclamation process and converted into a food plaza cum cultural market in 1994. The ground was cleared, the foundation laid, little huts and cottages were constructed with thatched roofs to give it a village feel, and the food cum market plaza was good to go. Currently, the place houses 62 stalls, some of which are rotated every 15 days to other craftsmen; the cost of which is INR 250 per day.
