An Indian Haat Spot

Feel Good Friday

Markets and bazaars, or “haats” as they’re known locally, are trading venues for people all over India.  Whether in a tiny rural town or an urban megacity, these open air markets make your senses come to life as you take in the vibrant Indian culture.

Take the haat bazaar in Ahmedabad, India for example.

You’ll find a red-haat collection of jewelry…

So traveler Ektaa is putting you in the haat seat with her fabric find straight from the haat of Ahmedabad…
