“Best market we saw!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2014

Very good selection of high quality clothes. Sellers are not as pushy and some have prices on their items which make you feel like you aren't being ripped off. Beautiful henna art. We didn't see any fruit and vegetables here.

“Preferred this market to Port Louis”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2014

Good choice here although it is a little tucked away. As other reviews say, make sure you barter - we got a reduction on everything including an embroidered tablecloth and 12 napkins which started at £90 and we got for £30. Less manioc than Port Louis although EVERY stallholder will approach you and start trying to convince you to buy their wares so be warned! Good choice of clothes in particular as well as souvenirs. Worth a visit.

“Haggle!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2014

We have been here twice now and you really need to haggle. They all sell similar or the same stuff so you need to get the best price. The sellers are 'in you face' trying to sell their goods but just keep walking! Great place though, and at the back there are some small animals in cages (ahh).There is a stall selling wooden bits, he will put anything you want on them, amazing. I loved it, great experience

“Bazaar Grand Baie- typical hustle and bustle market”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2014

Expect knockoffs- from Diesel T shirts to Billabong shorts, Indian saris and sunglasses- but you will find an amazing selection of souvenirs. Not necessarily at bargain prices- so proceed with caution with these charming traders! You need to barter and discount their offering price by at least 50% as a start! But it is an enjoyable morning visit. Take cash no ATM's close by and no card facilities available.

“Good place to hang around on a lazy day”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2014 via mobile

I accidently happened to be here and curiously roamed in bazaar to see what all they offer! The place is good to hang around on a lazy day if you are in Grand Bay Area. There are several shops around making you easy for shopping. Prices were found to be on higher side, May be it is tourist destination.
