The 32nd edition of the India International Trade Fair has all that a curious shopper can look for. While the international pavilion at Hall 18 displays handicrafts, jewellery items, edibles, clothing and home decor options, the state pavilions at the ongoing fair are no less. The Delhi state pavilion highlights the cause of the missing sparrow from the Capital, while the other state halls and pavilions, such as Karnataka, Kerala, Punjab, Uttar Pradesh are offering their traditional goods.

One should also visit the Odisha pavilion for the beautiful sand art display and Mizoram for a number of bamboo products and handmade flowers. The exhibits at the South African stall (Hall 18), which is also the focus country, include handmade home decor options, jewellery and bags. A must-visit is the Afghanistan stall for a rich variety of dry fruits.

To satiate your hunger pangs, there are food courts and state-wise food stalls offering traditional food items.
