Located in the heart of cyber city, the Huda market in Sector 56, Gurgaon, is a great place to scout for good deals on a whole range of products, while sampling some delicious street food.
The market, which has many twists, turns and about 5 courtyards, comes alive in the evenings after 4pm, when a number of hawkers set up their stalls. As you enter the area, the first thing that will catch your eye will be the range of bright orange, red and yellow terracotta mugs sold by Dinesh. The cups come at a reasonable price of Rs 250 for a set of six. You can even go for the coffee mugs, which are each priced from Rs 65 to Rs 75.
As you go straight ahead and turn right, you will come across two accessory stalls, where you can buy trendy hair-clips, bands, and bindis to nail paints. Another stall here sells monsoon special slippers and floaters from Rs 100 to Rs 250.Courting attention
You can check out Kurtas and Churidars between Rs 200 to Rs 500 at Neha Mix ‘n’ Match in the next two courtyards.

The stall next door by Bharat Singh sells handbags in faux leather from Rs 250 to Rs 350 and clutches from Rs 30 to Rs 100. The last courtyard has two to three stalls selling T-shirts, dhoti pants, kurtas and short skirts between the range of Rs 200 to Rs 400.
