India in Pictures - A Visit to Delhi Haat

We were in India this January. One of my fave places to hang out when I am in Delhi is "Delhi Haat". Haat means marketplace and this place is literally a big marketplace for best craft you can find anywhere. It's an amazing experience talking and buying from craftsmen directly. Besides lovely work of art from all 30+ states in India, you get amazing variety of local food. Some great music makes the atmosphere festive, 24X7. Expectedly, we came out with bags loaded , tummy full & empty wallets.......!!!!!!!
It was a very satisfying experience (can't wait to go back again !) & here's a sneak peek into what we loved, bought & ate.

Welcome to Delhi Haat
