We stopped by there on our way to the ferry, and really enjoyed all of the options. They had a seafood area with fresh catch of the day, as well as some arts and crafts from local vendors, as well as a variety of clothes. Definitely a cool little stop!

If you have limited time in Tahiti, I recommend the Circle Island Tour or a tour of the interior, but if time allows the market is a worthwhile stop. It's HUGE! Unfortunately it's more expensive than other island markets; i.e., a $10 tropical flower display in Hawaii is $20 in Papeete. Pearl shopping was also more affordable on the other French Polynesian islands. I was, however, very impressed with the large assortment of items and the cleanliness of the market. For cruisers it's an easy walk. Go early when it's cooler!

You stop here first on a Monday and you'll have live dancing within the first two hours downstairs. Make sure you bring at least $300 USD (but Cfp currency) as most vendors don't accept VISA, MASTERCARD OR AMEX. There's no Venmo, Apple or Google Pay downstairs but upstairs there are some vendors that do take Visa. Food was delicious and entertainment was very awesome. I love this place. It's magical like the rest of the island.

No visit to Papeete would be complete without at least a short stop at the market. It would also be easy to spend hours here. We spent about one hour and enjoyed it thoroughly. An amazing array of fish and produce is the star attraction but one can also find all manner of, if not “need to Havel items, at least “want to have” items. Go and have fun.
