We had been told so much about this market, its hippy beginnings, how long it has been running, etc and we were so excited to see it. However it sadly didn't live up to the hype.

It's all tourist driven now and the prices are jacked high. There is nothing available there that cannot be gotten in the shops in candolim/baga. As we stayed in Candolim it cost us 1800Rupee for return taxi, taking that into account it makes any souvenirs considerably dearer than buying in the towns.

All that being said we went for the experience and to say we seen it.

We went to the market on Wednesday and it was the Anjuna Wednesday market with collections from clothes, jewelries, souvenirs at very very low prices. You need to bargain but you can buy bags of clothes and others for your loved ones because that's what I did because they were cheap i.e 100/200 bucks for each item. Loved every but of my shopping experience/

Anjuna Flee market is still the place to go and spend some time - ca 3 hours or even full day as you can buy different things there what sellsmen have brought all over India and other countries. You can sit in the cafe, on the beach, just relax inbetween shopping. If you do not like to hang around with hot sun, go there 8 oclock in the morning. Sellers are already waiting you and it is not so hot. Do not leave your visit for too late. Best to go home at least 5oclock in the evening as many sellers packing their stuff and leaving and too much pollution is all around. Move quick if you want to see the place and need something particular as marketi is very big and you can easily spend all your time and do not see all what its offers! Enjoy!

One of the famous place among tourists is Anjuna evening market but it is closed due to Covid pandemic. Visited this place many times during my visit to Goa. Lot of interesting handicraft and local items are sold here. You need to be hard bargainer.Earlier foreigners use to sell items not required by them but now locals have taken place. Although everything sold is local items and available at most of tourist places but charm of visiting this place is something different that too in the evenings.

Definitely worth a visit. Hundreds of stalls selling just about everything in the world [that's how it felt!]. The look of all the different materials, smell of leather and spices. Buy any spices you like because they'll put them in air tight bags to take home. Buy anything you want but not straight away. Have a long look round first. Watch out for scooters. Toilets and little restaurants here and there and shade over most of the market. You have to bargain every time, but it doesn't take long to get used to it. Great place.

The market was awesome! The day we went it was super hot, so get there early. However it is right on the beach. We prefered the Saturday night market. It also had a band and the BEST burrito booth. Get the chicken burrito! Its amazing, and I am frome California where we have the best Mexican food, so I know a good burrito. Was shocked to find it in Goa! I also bought amazing saris at the night market. The vedors are special there. We went twice during our stay and have still smile thinking about one of my favorite sari ladies.

Lots of cool stuff to buy. Don’t forget to bargain.
Take at least one full morning or afternoon to go there.
And don’t forget to go to Nata Goa which is the best coffee shop in Goa and is just nearby.

This flee market is just one big tourist trap. Most of the stuff they sell is pretty much the same as everything the stalls sell.
People try to scam you by grabbing your ear, tell you there's something in it, 'clean' it and ask for a large amount of money.
I bought a couple of cd's, which of course were all copied (I wouldn't expect official cd's), but half of them were badly damaged or just empty.

This market might be fun if you happen to be in Anjuna on a wednesday and want to shop for some touristy souvenirs, but otherwise don't bother to visit.

Also bargain really hard, the prices demanded by sellers are waaaaay to high

Couldn't stand the shopkeepers being so pushy (worse than anywhere else in India, or Turkey or Morrocco come to think of it). If they learn to shut up they'll get a lot more trade out of people like me. Some nice unusual bits on offer here and there, not much though, same old touristy stuff stall after stall. The shopkeepers are just taking the mick and they rely on people not knowing how much cheaper the same things are in other parts. A real tourists rip off camp and if you are going to other parts of India, don't waste your money here.

The market at Anjuna on a Wednesday is a must for any visitor to Goa. Sprawling over a wide area close to the beach it is a vibrant in-your-face experience of colour, culture and merchandise. Racks of clothes, amazing jewellery and leather bags, sit beside stalls selling spices, hand embroidered bedspreads, inlaid wooden boxes and souvenir carved elephants.
You are told: be prepared to haggle. 'Haggle' doesn't come close. They will hook you, reel you in, and before you know it you have agreed to buy. After practice, you develop techniques for saying 'no thank you' firmly and politely. But if you do want to buy something and hard bargain, remember that these people have little money and the price that they end up being prepared to accept may well leave them with a very small margin. We are the ones with money. We call the shots. The difference to us between four hundred and eight hundred rupees is just over four quid. To them it's a day's (or more) wages. Don't haggle too hard.
