New season, college admissions and a brand new wardrobe--this is the time when fresh, out-of-school youth embark on a journey of sorts. To help with the shopping spree, we bring you a lowdown on the DU Shopping Trail. These markets are also where the most happening crowd of Delhi University could be spotted.

Kamla Nagar Market

While North campus students swear by the Kamla Nagar market, residents throng the market every evening for daily needs and Delhiites from other zones envy this market! Such is the aura of Kamla Nagar Market that a Delhi University’s student’s 3-year stay is incomplete without visiting the market. From high street fashion to trendy accessories and food to die for, you name it, they have it!

Sarojini Nagar Market

Touted as a famous market place amongst femme fatales of South Campus, specially JMC, Sri Venkateswara, Gargi and Kamla Nehru, Sarojini Nagar Market is jam-packed on any given day! Nicknamed SN, the market houses everything--from kitchenware to apparels, mouth-watering chaat to books!

Popular among Foreigners too! (from the official Facebook page)

Central Market, Lajpat Nagar

Lajpat Nagar Central Market lures shoppers from all over the city, owing to its sheer range of products on offer. Clothes, footwear, junk jewellery, ethnic wear, henna artists, crockery, pottery....the list is extensive and still not complete! Its winding alleys with famous corner shops make it a hit with students of Lady Sri Ram College and Kamla Nehru College.

Amar Colony

Lajpat Nagar’s foodie cousin, Amar Colony is the place to be if you are looking for delicious grub and lip-smacking street food. Popular with students from LSR and other South Campus colleges, the market is famous for lavish dining as well as quick bites. From speciality tandoori momos to mayo-laden shawarmas, this market has it all! The market is also famous for ethnic wear, available at wholesale prices.

M Block, Greater Kailash-I

The hip and the swanky market of M Block GK-1 attracts equally trendy crowd from LSR, Gargi and Kamla Nehru colleges. From global fashion brands to upmarket cafes, the market caters to the trendy fashionistas of the capital. The market is also famous for spas and beauty salons.

South Extension

The South Extension Market is classified into two parts--1 & 2, with both playing host to a number of swanky showrooms, restaurants, electronics stores and bookshops. The market is a popular shopping joint for students of South Campus colleges.

High Street! (from the official Facebook page)


Famous with backpackers, students and foreign travellers, Paharganj is a market where you can literally find everything. Where else will you find a combo as lethal as sarson ka saag with yak cheese? Or a secluded haveli with chants of “Hare Krishna” and “Allah Hoo” resonating in the air, creating an effervescent melody!

Majnu ka Tilla

The twin markets of Majnu ka Tilla and ISBT are the city’s Tibetan capital. Here, fashion trends are set, and old currency is sold at cheap rates! On any given day, you will find groups of South Campus students here bargaining for knick knacks or gorging on hot momos.

Organized Chaos!

Satya Niketan

One of the most popular hangout places for south campus students, Satya Niketan is synonymous with Chowringhee’s kathi rolls, tandoori momos and gaming arcades. From ARSD to Sri Venkateswara, Moti Lal Nehru to JMC, this market is like a second home to these Delhi University students!

Karol Bagh and Ghaffar Market

Students from Kalindi College, located in East Patel Nagar, flock to Karol Bagh for all their shopping sprees. A popular joint for electronics and gadgets, funky clothing and savoury street food, Karol Bagh and its adjoining Ghaffar Market draw big crowds from all over the city. Not to forget, the market is also home to Roshan di Kulfi, which in itself is reason enough to visit this place!
