  • Lost of tourist rubbish, mostly from China with Mauritius added. Very hot and smelly in places. It could be described as vibrant, or not!  more »
  • A typical market, a lot of textiles. Products repeatable ne many stalls, you well recognize the price before we start shopping. In the bazaar at Grand Baie prices much lower. Bid to capture up to 3 times, it all depends on the imagination of the seller. Excellent food stands with fruit, there is a small café.

  • To visit to these colorful stalls. Beautiful stands of fruits and vegetables. A bit dated. Painful who you give up more of that you put one foot in the market to buy spices. So visit cut short!

  • If you like markets and are you looking for the domestic one, you have to visit the Central Market in Port Louise. Be strict in negotiation ;-) and enjoy the variaty of the products.
  • Good place for good quality stuff at a low price. Anything can be found here
  • Local market is not only one place, is all the street. In the center of the street is building with a lot of vegetables and fruits. You can buy here also spices or local food for normal prices. Rest of the street is mostly about fashion, shoes, small stores with everything, you can buy presents, tourists things etc. We can buy here some things for a fishing too. Sometimes it is a little bit noisy, but after a while or if you come inside some small shop you will be in another world :)
  • The central market is a piece left behind by history that is.still thriving with modernity... You can find everything from traditional wear and music to sculptures and variety of products...plus local food
  • Love zis place a lot. Here we get all our fresh fruits n vegetables.
