This bazaar is so different from any bazaar we have ever been to. We went to Port Louis market we found Grand Baie much better cheaper also not so stressful.

Clothes and spices and loud pushy sale assistance. If you don't like what you see on the shelf they will quickly sew you it. Everyone is friendly and helpful. The prices are less then most other markets or main street shops, if you know how to haggle.

We arrived in Mauritius with no luggage. After having driven to port louis to visit the local market to purchase some items of clothing...only found this market 4 days later. It is clean and has a lot of things at good prices. If we had known this we would most definitely not gone to port louis. Most definitely worth visiting.

It's a typical "bazaar" meaning a market where you do a out of shopping with bargaining. That's the fun there. Few items need a bargaining of 1/4th the quoted price. Fun place to shop souvenirs.

Went to this market for buying Souvenirs, although it has a good collection, i didnt find any thing unique. You could find the same souvenir all across Mauritius. Also, you you should great bargaining skills to shop here, as you can negotiate upto 50 % of the price quoted to you. You can just browse through the market once and... More

We always visit the bazaar when we come to Mauritius. It is a nice clean bazaar with plenty local souvenirs to buy at decent prices. The vendors can be a bit overwhelming at times, but overall a good experience. The toilet facilities are also nice and very clean.

Thank Stellie-Bell
