The word Guwahati is a blend of two Assamese words, guwa meaning ‘betel’ nut and ‘haat’ meaning marketplace. There are numerous markets and shopping spots in the main city. Few famous ones are: Fancy Bazaar, Ganeshguri, Paltan Bazaar, GNB Road and Ulubari.

For the traditional items, you can always check the Government Emporiums and haats that are scattered all across the city. One of the most famous is the NEDFi Haat at Ambari, where you can find variety of local Assamese goods. The NEDFi Haat is a place where you can surely pick a souvenir or two like wall hangings, caps and shawls

Also, you have a wide choice of bamboo and cane products to choose from. Exquisite bamboo and cane furniture and fashion accessories are available for you to choose. Apparels made from Assamese silk are another must buy. The famous mekhla chadar and other silken clothes can be bought from a number of stores Silkalay is the most prominent store to buy such items of silk. The store is located at both Fancy Bazaar and G.S Road.
