A lot of vendor selling traditional and local handicraft souvenirs at very reasonable prices. Good quality products are available without the need to bargain much. No vendors would push you to buy things from them so one can visit them without any hesitation.

Free parking is available on the road and also easily accessible via e-rickshaws.

Something not to be missed in Shantiniketan. Local sellers sell their products that are quite classy in their own way, are of good quality and are very reasonable. The vibe of the flea market is very lively. Make sure to include a weekend in your trip as these markets set themselves on weekends only.

The air was fresh. It was a sunny winter morning. There were hand crafted articles all around us and the setting was perfect for a day out at the Shonajhurir Haat. But contrary to my expectations the sellers of those artefacts were not the artisans / crafts people themselves. Hence a bit of bargaining was there, and at the end of it all it was the middleman who earned. And another damp squib were the motorbikes, battery opeeated rikshwas and cars that went right in. No freshly made Bengali delicacies were available either. Overall not a great experience to write about -

It’s a cool place to spend quality time, the heritage Bishwabharti has its own charm. Don’t expect many activities, keep few hours for Museum and to know u need to read the articles thoroughly . Wednesday early morning will give you a chance to visit the temple.

Good village hut environment. Resorts are nearby with some basic restaurants. Should you wish to dine in any one of those, make sure that the plates and glasses are dried with tissue papers before serving any food. Not far from Shanti Niketon. Ask the locals for direction.

Visited the haat lot of times. It's a cultural and nostalgic place. Apart from the crafts or baul songs, the atmosphere is awesome. It's around 180 km from Kolkata. Often we reach Shantiniketan at noon and after lunch we visit this haat till evening and then again back to Kolkata.

It is also called "Shonibaar'er haat". All the local artisans gather at this place called Khoai, in Shonajhuri. Everything that you would find here is hand made, right from clothing to accessories, furnitures, decoratives et all. This "mela" or fair starts at around 3:00-3:30 PM IST on every Saturday and lasts till there's day light. There is no power supply,hence, by the time it's dusk, the sellers will wind up their stuff. It is a must visit place if you are in Shantiniketan!

This is an open market mainly selling boutique clothes, handicrafts and handloom and organised only on Saturdays afternoon, called "Shonibarer Haat" in local language means the Saturday Market. Folk songs and colorful atmosphere with light forest around, typical village atmosphere, red-soil path and a beautiful sun set are added on attractions. Simply refreshing weekend.

Popularly known as the sonajhuri haat its a shopping heaven every Saturday on the banks of khoai river. Its an open air market where you can buy tribal items and many more stuffs while listening to wonderful baul songs, sung by some local bauls sitting aside.

Khoai mela is not so far from santiniketan main ground. Battery-equipped auto can bring to that place. This place is full of local cloths, toys and ornaments which cost reasonable. The mela is only opened on Saturday so be careful before going. It is a nice place to visit.
