#1 of 6 in Shopping in Maldives
Inspect the local produce at Male Fish Market, one of the biggest venues of its kind in the world. Fishermen stock the market every morning, and the daily haul usually includes everything from tuna to swordfish. Make sure you try dried fish, a local specialty with a strong salty taste. You can also find a wide range of fresh fruits and vegetables. Be prepared for some interesting aromas, as fresh fish, crowds, and hot weather make for a strong smell.

  • For lovers of fresh fish this is the place to go shopping. Possibility of obtaining supplies of fresh fish and have it prepare and fillet on site. See locals filleting fish jaw-dropping. Don't miss the tuna steaks!

  • Every hard to buy stuff because less people speak English. Pronunciation problem, Friday have less fish. I was looking for sardine fish but no one know about that. Its really hard to survived here in Maldives. If you are coming for job or business bring food to cook easily other wise its very expensive here. Maybe today Friday that's why fish over their on regular days rates or variety will be there. Or you need to have local friends or girls to help you. Otherwise hell for you very hard to survived
  • You can find a good variety of fish here... Some days price could be a bit high... Also it is located near two local markets where you can find a lot of vegetables, fruits and many other local as well as imported food items
  • Where you can get the cheapest fish in Maldives it's really good place to buy fish also have fish cleaning services charge like 5 mvr per fish
  • This is a popular tourist spot. The Fish Market is a bustiling center where local fishermen sell their daily catches. Buy a fish for yourself or take a stroll along the jetty to find a long line of local fishing vessels. Opposite the fish market is the local market where you would find fruits, vegetables and other products brought in from the islands.
  • Was interesting to see the fish caught and variety as well. Quite clean inside in fact. Definitely worth a visit
