"Haat" is a Hindi word that means a weekly marketplace where the producer sells the product themselves. As a result, the buyer can find out interesting details about the product which are typically not available when sold through retailer. This is equivalent to Farmers Market where the Farmers are replaced by local artisans.
Dilli Haat is one such place set up by Government of India in New Delhi. It has traditional clothes and jewelry, handicrafts, music performances, paintings, foods from different Indian states, and a lot more. It's a great way to spend a weekend!
