Enjoyed the colours and varieties

You can buy almost anything here!

For me, the attraction is the fresh fruit & vegetables. but for others, may be the seafood, the clothes, the hardware...

Even if you are not buying, it's a good experience to walk around and explore the sights, sounds & aromas that make up this marketplace - not to mention the personalities you will find & see.

I visited a couple of times - and did not personally have an issue - but I'd very strongly suggest you are consciously aware of pickpocketers here - plan for it before you leave your hotel, you should be OK.

Busy Market
Nov 2019
The market is quite big, Long and too busy but if you need some daily stuff it is the right place to buy your needs. We bought a pair of shoes
Just take care of your wallet or telephone
I can say that it is not a magic and nice market which you definitely need to visit, But if you visit the train station and ndependence Avenue, then, turn left and then analakely is having you

Typical open air market in bustling area. Lots to see but a bit crowded.

Just about anything you could want or think you need is for sale here.

To to the crowded conditions and area poverty, this is a haven for pickpockets. Beware and protect your personal items and money.

Can be fun.

Typical, crowded and absolutely pleasant

The voyager visiting Tana should not miss the Analakely market. Colorful, with many curious items on sale (like hand made bar soaps and medicinal remedies) and people friendly and smiling, but be aware that a pickpocket could be stealthily creeping towards you: but no problem, no violence. Lots of bars, restaurants and jewelries in the vicinity.Really worth a visit.

Wonderful

I M a market lover and whenever I arrive to a new Country the market is usually my first stop.
This is such a great market to get lost into.
Spent my first and my last day here. Bought last minute spices (cinnamon, vanilla, pepper and so on). Such a great way to end my trip in wonderful Madagascar. Chaotic, colorful and noisy. Exactly how a cool market should be.

Note: you can take photos and people will up to it. However just be aware of pickpockets when walking around. Keep an eye on your belongings and you'll be fine.

Analakely has literally anything you could imagine. From fruit, veggies and seafood like oysters to clothes to livestock (chickens and ducks) and jewellery. And everything in between. A very colourful and busy market, definitely worth visiting. Just remember to bargain with the locals - they love it. Divide the initial price by 2 before buying.

A lot to offer, but not without hassle

You can find anything from food to clothes and souvenirs, but it's one of the markets with most hassle in the world. Beware of groups of 'mothers' who ask you to buy them milk and then sell it back to the shop.

Busy but well organized place
Oct 2016 • Friends
A lot of daily life things had been seen and very enjoyable. A big market with a lot of shops and street vendors. They are organized, busy but not noisy. They are well clustered in different sectors, namely dry food, vegetable, fish, meat, clothing, hot food and even stationery, etc. Across a block, there is a 2nd-hand book market near the park.

Real local market
Mar 2017 • Friends
A vibrant real local market on one long street selling pretty much everything you would expect to find in an outdoor street market. Dont bring any valuables or wallets as there could be pickpockets. Just bring some cash. It seems to be quite safe.
