The Noida Haat, One stop destination for all you handicraft fantasies!!

The Noida Haat, One stop destination for all you handicraft fantasies!!

I moved to Noida in 2009, due to work. And no doubt, Noida has changed a lot in last decade. The infrastructure growth has brought about many good changes to Noida. Residential as well as commercial growth has been tremendous. In last couple of years, an amazing places has opened in Noida. Kind of hidden treasures. The Noida Haat also known as Bunkar bhavan. Today, I will be sharing my experience about this amazing getaways.

The Noida Haat: Also known as Bunkar bhavan

This is a Noida authority initiative. A spacious, sprawling facility opened for encouraging the local artisans and connect them to buyers directly. Although, the place was built and inaugurated last year in November, I think it’s still not as popular as it should have been. Of course, due to the wretched Pandemic. First, the lockdown and thereafter, cautious people exercising restraint in venturing out of their homes to crowded places.

Noida Haat is a host for Shilp Mela, Diwali mela, Gujrat Handicraft Utsav etc. The plan is to make this place a local attraction with seasonal festivals like ‘Basant Mela’ and even ‘Mango festival’. This place is slated to become a boiling pot for all Dance, Music and Art Festivals. There is also a light and music show proposed, but even the authorities want to wait for the pandemic to subside before inviting people for entertainment. Training session and live workshops for artisans is also part of the plan.

Infrastructure and facilities:

Noida Haat and Bunkar Bhavan, is built over 10 acers of land. Shilp Haat has two main blocks with shop space for around 146 shops, 3 dormitories with 100 people capacity, 3 food court, an emporium, Culture Centre and a Museum. The open theatre has a sitting capacity of One Thousand people. With a huge parking space to handle the capacity has been opened in the basement.

When the place was inaugurated, entry tickets were charged. However, now the entry is free now.

You can see and meet artists from many states. Kashmir, Rajasthan, MP, Gujrat and UP. The products have a wide range from pottery, wood craft, crystal work, leather work to clothes. From Bandhani to Katha work, and Kashmiri thread work to Banaras silk. All this at a very competitive price range. This place is vibrant, colourful and full of excitement. A great place to encourage ‘Vocal for Local’ call by the honourable Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi.

Vibrant India

The sellers are enthusiastic, eager and courteous. I bet; you cannot get out of this place empty handed or full pockets. There are so many wonderful things for home furnishing as well as for gifting purpose.

The food court hosts cuisines from various states, if you have been to Delhi Haat, you would have an idea about what Haat is all about. Apart from local cuisines, you will also find a Dominos outlet. Kids play area is also well managed. With few swings, bouncy castle and lot of free space for kids to run around.

You can settle and eat and let the kids play while keeping an eye on them.

If you want to give a feeling of village life to your kids then on the theme of Chokhi Dhani, Noida Haat has come up with Chokhi Haveli. It is a restaurant with village like makeover.

Village in the heart of a city

This place Its fun for everyone. Noida Haat is in the heart of Noida. In sector 33, just behind the ISCON Temple and Prakash Hospital.

Here is the website, where you can find directions as well https://www.noidaHaat.in/

    I am a big fan of locals handicraft. Haat seems a fun to me always. Last time I visited any Haat was in 2007 which was Bhopal Haat. At my Mom’s place, we have Expo every year which is similar to Haat. It is so much fun to check out Indian handicraft.

      We had Delhi haat, but having one closer to home is better.
      The atmosphere at haat is always joyful and vibrant. Truly Indian.
