This Diwali, shop from Lucknow's famous markets & light up the lives of local vendors!

Diwali is just around the corner and our plan right now is to scrap things off our shopping lists ASAP! Although the celebrations this year are gonna be toned down due to the pandemic, we still have a lot to do at home- make rangolis, Diwali special jhaadu-pochha, decorate the house and the list simply goes on. So if you're planning on stepping out soon to bag the festive items, give the local markets in Lucknow a thought instead of the malls and other flourishing businesses. We're absolutely rooting for #VocalforLocal because during such testing times, low-scale businesses and vendors need your attention and support!

Bhoothnath Market

Lucknow's Bhoothnath Market is hailed as the Mecca for shoppers during this time of the year and no matter what your budget is, you'll find something here for sure. The roads are packed with hawkers and there are innumerable stalls offering us a spread of various items, ranging from vibrant diyas to organic colours for rangoli, paper lights to gifting items- you'll find it all here! Bhoothnath offers us a selection of fancy lights, home decor articles and other things, which you don't need but will probably end up buying anyway! So go over, maintain distance, wear a mask and start shelling out on local products.

Aminabad Market

Aminabad Market is one of the cheapest markets in Lucknow and if you wanna grab a few decor items like mats, diyas, lights and so on within a stipulated budget, this is your next stop! This year, to celebrate Diwali on a green note, you'll find diyas made of cow dung here, which are selling like hot cakes and also, the usual namkeen stalls are currently operational too. Aminabad is famed for its variety of articles and also moreover for the crammed lanes, so you've gotta be careful here- masks and sanitizers here are a must and if you're beyond the age of 50-55 or are pregnant, do avoid this area.

Aliganj Market

If you're looking for pretty diyas, candles or intricately done idols of Ganesh-Laxmi, head out to Lucknow's Aliganj Market. This hub of budget-friendly decorations, has always been our go-to during festivities. This market also has beautiful earthen pots and pieces for you to take home and if you're looking for gifting options, these are gonna impress even the most discerning relatives or guests.

Instead of crackers, light up someone's life this Diwali!

This year, we are ushering in the festivities on the lines of the new normal and in this phase, we have to support each other as we're all in this together! So instead of lighting up firecrackers, consider lighting up someone's life this Diwali- surely, it'll be a happier one then.
