Delhi gets new craft market - Nature Bazar

Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit Sunday inaugurated Nature Bazar, a cultural and retail hub of natural and organic produce, aimed at creating a link between nature and crafts and promoting age-old skills in innovative products.

"It will be a vibrant green space in a busy metropolitan area. A module of how to be both Indian and contemporary, environmentally ethical as well as people-friendly," Dikshit said.

The bazar, which is at the Kisan Haat in Andheria Modh in south Delhi, is a joint initiative of Delhi government and Delhi Tourism.

Nature Bazaar is spread over 7,000 sq. meters and comes up at a place where residents of Delhi and Gurgaon can get access to quality crafts and eco-friendly products.

Craftsmen and crafts organizations from Bhutan, Bangladesh, Nepal, Pakistan, Afghanistan along with Indian craftsmen will display their skill in handicraft and handlooms.
