This is a market for locals to buy their food, clothing, shoes etc. There are a couple of shops catering for tourists too but it isn't much of a tourist destination.

Few years old open market. Lot of fruits and vegetables, almost no souvenirs. You can buy some "local" clothes and this is it. I would advise you to buy small pineapples already prepared to eat. It is much different taste than in supermarkets in Europe......More

The market operates twice a week (Wednesday and Sunday). It is a great way to spend a couple of hours - lots of fantastic produce and colours with some good souvenir and clothing stalls to browse.

Good local covered market selling everything. Good food and drinks cafes. Bustling and colourful, well worth a few hours visit for your gifts, tops, shoes and Tick Box experience.

I popped into this market for a quick visit and was blown away but the variety of items for sale. From indian outfits to tons of mauritian curios and lots of fresh produce. I got to the market around 9am and not all the stalls...More

First you smell it; a mixture of aromas from spices and fruits, and of not so nice smell of seafood. Then you can hear it: several languages at once and plenty of vendors cries. Next you can see it - at first it is overwhelming...More
