Small by Aussie standards. Outside markets were ordinary and expensive. Inside markets were more interesting with foods and other stuff that I had not seen before. About average prices to what you would pay in Oz but expensive compared to other islands. Port Villa was...More

The markets are free to visit. They are held in covered areas so sheltered from sun or rain. We went by HOHO bus at $9 Australian. You can catch a local bus or even a taxi. Costs are minimal
