When it comes to street-shopping, Lucknow isn’t any less compared to Dilli’s Sarojini, Mumbai’s Colaba Market or Kolkata’s Gariahat!

If you’re here, you should know that Lucknow isn’t only about chikan clothing- there is so much more to it. The jhumkas, the embroidery laces, zardozi work, all sorts of clothing materials and the list goes on!

But you gotta know the right places to shop from, if you want the best of deals and options. So to channel your inner fashion designer, you need to visit Budhh Bazaar near Gol Market Chauraha! Also keep in mind that as the name suggests, this market is only spread out on Wednesdays, all day long!

We reached Budhh Bazaar on a Wednesday afternoon and as expected, it was overcrowded and bustling with vendors haggling with their customers.
When you keep on walking towards Kapoorthala, ask anyone about the kapde wali gali and it will take you to snaking lanes selling materials of all kinds, for all purposes!

Once you enter here, you’ll be witnessing passionate bargaining scenes and you’ll surely be torn for choices! This place is the best for bachelors who are on a budget and for people who have functions and festivals coming up!

You can drop by and select multiple fabrics to design your own suits, blouses, gharara, sharara, lehengas, palazzos or even simply, kurtas and shalwars! This place houses one of the best fabric markets of Lucknow and the economical prices for opulent fabrics cannot simply be missed out on!

Here at Buddh Bazaar, your designer dreams are bound to come true because this place has everything you need for designing you own apparels. After you’re done wandering around, you can grab a quick bite at The Cellar or maybe at Coffee Culture because these two classic places are located right here.

Buddh Bazaar is highly underrated and we should actually encourage the local vendors and stall-owners by buying from them. Enough of malls and shopping centres- come here to actually get back to your desi roots. Bargain and buy the best you can grab so that you can be under the limelight for your unique attire!
