As night time approaches vendors unpack their foodstuffs, cooking utensils, paraffin lamps and lots of enthusiasm. They trade until 22:00. During the day time no unexpected traveller could foresee what will happen at that same spot during the night time if you havent seen it before. The night market is not only a tourist attraction but also the place where locals come to buy their dinner. There are lots of vendors with different types of local zanzibar food that are prepared. Be aware that you buy fresh food and see it prepared before your eyes, otherwise it might be stale and not stomach-friendly (especially the sea food - lobster etc). Very interesting as some vendors have sales men that want to share his story why you have to buy food from his table. When you do buy food, you select what you want, then it is mostly grilled on a fire (sometimes only heated) and the price yoy pay is dependant on your choice. Mostly all food is affordable.
