Dehradun has some famous street markets which are quite famous and affordable to everyone. Here are the best and the famous street markets of Dehradun:
Paltan bazaar street market, Dehradun:
I would rather like to call it a ‘LADIES BAZAAR’. As I find this market mostly circled by ladies. Paltan bazaar is the most crowded and busiest of the markets in Dehradun even on the working days. Paltan Bazaar is located in the heart of the city near Ghanta Ghar/ clock tower of Dehradun.
In Paltan Bazaar, a person can buy practically from anything to everything. Books, handicrafts, bags, footwear, gift items and the most common and demanding item of market CLOTHES. These items are basically sold at cheaper and bargainable prices.
In the market you can amble through the streets, flip through the items, buy books or clothes, have ice cream or in short, this market has all the required ingredients which take you to spend the entire day having the fun-loving shopping.

Tibetan Market, Dehradun: One of the most famous street markets of Dehradun
You find a Tibetan market in almost all the hilly regions of the north and eastern states of India. Dehradun is no exception. Tibetan markets are run by the Tibetans and are famous for their handmade woolen sweaters and garments along with their local soups and fast food.
Saturday and Sundays are their main working days. On Sunday, the streets are full of local Garhwali traders selling their local jewelry, antiques, carpets, and paintings. The items are cheap and are at an affordable rate for the customers. You can even bargain with the price of the items.
If Paltan Bazaar is for the price tag and showrooms then, Tibetan market is for cheaper price tags at the same quality.
