Dry fruits and spices are one of the most consumed items in India, but despite their consumption, they are pricey. But what if we tell you, you can get them at lower prices and good quality.
As you set foot near this market close to the New Delhi railway station, the smell of freshly ground spices will tingle the inside of your nostrils from far. You can easily spot this market down the road from Sadar Bazaar, Azad market, because of its distinguished colours and representation. Bundles of spices such as sukhi mirchi, bay leaves, pepper, clove, raw turmeric and a lot of herbs are all here for the taking. Other than spices, many dry fruits such as almonds, cashew, and walnuts are sold here. The 500-meter-long market is almost 50-60 years old, and the shopkeepers run their business here for a long time.
One of the ladies, Ruby, a dry fruit seller from the market, says, "Currently, the business is slow owing to hot and humid weather and the impending rain. Nowadays people are not coming here to buy much. It's been days since we had a good sale."
