Shonibarer Haat


in Shantiniketan

This open-air market sees local artisans and others selling, among other things, highly colourful textiles, bright tribal jewellery and attractive dhokra (lost-wax casting) metalwork, in the bucolic setting of the Sonajhuri eucalyptus woods on the northern edge of town. Some sellers are here every day, but Saturday afternoon, when you'll find food stands and maybe baul musicians too, is best.
