Sarojini Market is a popular flea market and street shopping centre located in Sarojini Nagar area in the South Western part of the national capital city of Delhi in India.
Sarojini Nagar (or SN as it is sometimes called) is one of the most-loved and preferred marketplaces in the city to buy affordable clothes, accessories (shoes, watches, jewellery, belts), jewellery, décor items, crockery, and a whole lot of other things for personal, gifting or home use. The concept of haggling is also popular here (as in most Indian street markets) and people can get great deals on these items – this is the reason it is one of the most-preferred shopping locations for people of all age groups.
It is extremely crowded especially during weekends. Apart from numerous showrooms and outlets for various international and local brands, the market has an array of street-side shops arranged within its crux - that sell clothes and other fancy little things.
Sarojini Nagar Market is situated close to Safdarjung Airport in Delhi. It is open to the public from 10 AM to 9 or 10 PM on all days of the week.
Visitors can reach the place by road (through private vehicle or public modes of transport in the city like bus, or cab or auto-rickshaw). Another option is to take the pink line on the Delhi Metro, on which the nearest metro station lies (i.e., Sarojini Nagar Metro Station), which has been operational since 2010.
Sarojini Nagar was named after Sarojini Naidu - a well-known female freedom fighter. Prior to that the area was called Vinay Nagar or Beena Nagar.
Sarojini Market was also one of the sites affected in the 29 October 2005 Delhi bombings, after which it was resurrected and gained more popularity.
