Big choice of fruits, spices, etc. However, prices for fruits were cheper at the Easter coast. Some locals can attach to you as "assistants" - no help from them, you can navigate by yourself

Is an African traditional market where you can find anything you want in very good prices. A place where all sellers come to trade their goods. Everywhere you see there are colours and smells. Many fruits and vegetables, meats and fish and many other goods.
It is usually very crowded especially on sundays and a little bit dirty.
Is something that you are not familiar with but worth a lot a vist to see the tradition and the culture.
Spice corners are full of amazing smells and colours

Probably the most vile experience, smell and general filth.
Don’t go unless raw meat and seafood organs in extreme heat is your thing.

While your are in Stone Town I recommend a visit to the market. We went as part of a guided tour and it helped so we could ask questions about varies items we saw and did not know what they were. If you buy anything make sure you bargain. It is an eye opening experience if you haven't travelled globally or been to these types of markets before. You may not like the seafood and meat section if you have a weak stomach but it didn't bother us much.

The bazaar was wonderful to visit. It was one of those hot humid days and I am glad we took water with us.I was enchanted by the history....sometimes very sad and the architecture of the buildings. I specially enjoyed the doors and the symbolism behind their design.
We skipped the fish and meat markets but the fruits were beautifully displayed and the Spice stalls to die for. The stall owners were friendly and the spice prices reasonable. In lieu of this I did not barter and was touched to receive a few 'presents ' Well worth a visit.

Interesting traditional market to visit in Zanzibar. Spend 30-45 minutes to walk through it. Better to have someone local/tour guide to go with you. it's like a maze.
You will see spices, meat, vegetable, all in different sections of the market. Very interesting. Don't recommend that you buy foods from there to prevent getting stomachache.

We went here twice and both times we were easier with a guide or a local highly recommend visit this way as they can give you an insight into all the weird and wonderful things you might see. Went through the seafood part and the smell was not as over whelming as some have suggested.

Another must do in Stone Town recommend do with a guide.
