Nothing special about this market. Just a lot of bananas and fresh vegetable. You can probably get some nice photos of bananas though.

Definitely worth a visit whilst in the Maldives. Lots of fresh produce as well as some weird and wonderful food. Take a camera as it's very colourful.

I am not the biggest fan of markets, but enjoyed visiting this one. Plenty of diversity and easy to start imagining your next gastronomic adventure with all the inputs. But the prices, boy, they can sometimes be as eye watering as the spices on sale.

We visited the local market on a transit day. All the fruits, veggies, dried fish, nuts and spices. It is not big, but safe and enjoyable.

Was fascinating and there was definitely some weird and wonderful looking vegetables on the market. The bananas are strangely small but really rich in flavour.

It's a very small local market, full of bananas and coconut, you can find some dryed tuna and local bounty bars prices are so good
