All kinds of fruits available here. You may ask the vendor or seller to taste and then buy for yourself.

This is a great way to see inside what people eat every day. The fish market had fish I’d never seen before.. the vegetables were fresh and abundant. Not much to see, but interesting to stop in to if you pass by.

Once you have got use to the smell, it is a fish market after all, you will discover a great market, buzzing with an extraordinary display of fishes. Really worth a visit.

We did a walking tour of Male on our own and passed by the local market . Amazing fresh produce on offer for sale. There seemed to be many types of fresh produce from lots of countries of the world. Good experience

The prices are very high but I assume there are different prices for locals and expats. Maybe with a good bargain you can get something

We popped over to Male city as our flight out was several hours later. We wandered around (with a guide), seeing the sites, spending too much money on gifts (save it for the airport duty free), and eventually hitting the market. The market is very...More

It's pretty much in the middle of the northern shore. If you're at Republic Square (the main square with the big flag) and facing the sea, turn left along the coast and it's a minute or two away.
